In an uncertain world, the role of a leader is to create ecosystems for human engagement, learning and performance excellence. These ecosystems are intricately connected but these connections are not always visible. This lack of visibility and systemic thinking stifles a leader’s ability to add value to people, organizations they work with and eventually the customers.

I am Tanmay Vora, I help leaders and organizations build ecosystems for human engagement, learning and performance excellence to thrive in an uncertain world. I have worked with several organizations, hundreds of individual leaders and customers across the globe enabling them to improve their operational efficiencies, leadership competencies and learning infrastructure.


Quality has been my forte. I started this blog when I was a new manager responsible for Quality. QAspire represents a fervent aspiration to deliver value through quality and continuously raise the bar. QAspire started as and continues to be a ‘labor of love’ initiative.


I currently serve as Country Head and Director (Product Development, R&D) at Basware Corporation where I provide leadership to Basware’s India operations which is one of the largest offices of Basware with 650+ people (one third of global organization) spanning multiple business units and corporate functions. The endeavor is to build a great work culture, deliver world class products and develop leaders at all levels.


I am a polymath and a lifelong learner. I am passionate about starting things, strive to finish what I started and share my lessons along the way. When encountering difficult situations, I always ask, “What’s still possible?” and that opens me up to abundance around me. I am driven by possibilities.
