Travelling back to the future with Flipster Akshaya Shetty

In July 2011, Akshaya Shetty made a decision that was to change her life. She joined Flipkart, a small, enthusiastic e-commerce venture that was quickly expanding its footprint in India. However, between then and now a different story has transpired in Akshaya’s life, which was marked by changes when she stepped back into Flipkart for a second time in 2014. In Akshaya’s own words, this is what the transformation looked like.

Did you know that the ability to unlearn might be what got you to where you are today? And that it may be the very thing that will help you grow in life, business and your career? No, we aren’t talking about forgetting. Unlearning is connected to understanding. The American author Isaac Asimov said it best: “I am not a speed reader. I am a speed understander.” Chief Learning Officer Stefaan Van Hooydonk is one Flipster who lives by these words. Schooled in Latin and Greek, and proficient in Dutch, English, Mandarin, German and French, Belgium-born Stefaan pursued his passion for Eastern and Western schools of thought, and attempts to apply both in his line of work. Unlearning, he swears, has stood him in good stead and guided him as he built from the ground up Flipkart’s exemplary internal knowledge management engine.
