Gautam Shah

Former Director, Accenture Development Partnerships

After almost two decades of working as an IT consultant with Accenture in four continents around the world, Gautam now works with non profits and social enterprises on their business and IT strategies, with a particular focus on wildlife conservation. He has worked with multiple organizations in the private, non-profit, and government sector on improving their business models and better understanding their ability to impact social change. Gautam is a believer of the Business Model Canvas to help organizations crystalize and communicate their business model and therefore has designed this course around it. When he is not working on IT and business models, he can typically be found singing with gibbons, swimming with whale sharks, and napping with chimpanzees.
