Meet Venkatesh, a data expert and self-trained dancer

Tell us about your Accenture journey.

I joined Accenture in January 2016, as a Business Process Delivery Analyst.

Share something about your passion.

My passion is dancing and I enjoy it thoroughly. I started dancing when I was 5 and learnt it on my own by watching dance videos. The styles I learnt are Bollywood, freestyle and Western (Hip hop, Break dance, B-Boying, Locking and popping) in movies. I used to practice the steps times until I got them right.

Dance lets me express my hidden emotions to the world. It is a colorful talent and allows for creativity.

Also, every weekend, I take dance classes for kids and adults. It is a great feeling to share my talent with students, especially kids. I take my students to several competitions and shows to participate, and encourage them to keep learning and perform better.

Why did you choose your passion?

Dancing is a God’s gift to me. I have given a number of stage performances at my school and college. I led my dance group in the college—an exciting and responsible role to lead a dance crew, teaching and monitoring them. I have participated in more than 30 intercollege competitions.

What drives you to pursue it?

My interest in dance drives me toward it. It is part of me. It is a privilege to inspire people with my dance, and to teach dance and help students perform better.

I have also choreographed songs for my friends who work at other organization for their annual events.

How has Accenture supported you to pursue your passion?

The leadership has always encouraged me to participate in office events. Even my team members motivate me to participate and have helped me form a dance group in the office.

I have received appreciation from the top management to my fellow team members for my dance performances.

How does pursuing your passion help you focus better on your work?

Dancing keeps me refreshed and energetic, and helps me realize my true potential. It also keeps me healthy and active.

As I use creativity in my dance, I find ways to suggest improvement ideas that can make my work and my team’s work simpler and more efficient.
