Hi, I am Tanmay Vora.
I started QAspire in year 2006 as a personal archive of lessons I was learning as a new manager. Little did I know that it will eventually become a labor of love and grow to attract tens of thousands of visitors each month. What a journey it has been and continues to be!
Here at QAspire, I think a lot about raising the bar for leadership, learning and quality in an ever-changing world of work. I currently serve as Director (Product Development, R&D) and Country Head at Basware Corporation where I focus on providing cross-functional leadership, building organization culture, delivery excellence, talent management and leadership development.
As an author, I have written two books on quality leadership and has contributed in several other eBooks and books including a full chapter in “The ASTD Management Development Handbook (ASTD Press, 2012). I have been a contributing writer to several renowned magazines and blogs. On this blog, I have written more than 700 posts so far capturing my lessons on better leadership. My goal as an author is to simplify learning for others without losing the essence of the insight.
He is a rare signal in a world full of “blah blah” noise.

As an illustrator, I create sketchnotes to capture and simplify complex ideas visually. I extend the goal of simplifying learning, provoking thinking, enabling sense making and deeply connect people to ideas through visual notes. My sketchnotes have occupied the screen space at many international conferences and TEDx talks apart from being featured in magazines, internal corporate workshops and office spaces.
