Yogesh K.'s professional bio / interests
I am an unlikely first-time book author. My background is in building artificial intelligence products for tech companies. Unsatisfied with my work life, I couldn't pinpoint exactly what is it that I don't like. My curiosity and investigation led me to write this book (Digital Belonging - Building Human-Centered Organizations). More info: www.yogeshksoni.com
I’d like help with…
Changing the work culture of every tech company in the world and making them more human-centered i.e. ensure that the organizations prioritize catering to the hard-wired human needs of employees. Research proves that doing so increases the sense of belonging (which is directly proportional to retention rates and productivity)
An interesting, or unusual fact(s) about me…
I see humor in most situations. I once slept on a bench under the Eiffel tower once because I didn't have enough money. Funnily enough, I was afraid of being mugged until I realized the probably mugger would have more money on them than me. I laughed out loud and slept soundly.

A career highlight
Publishing a non-fiction book on a topic that I knew very little about when I started. I did it while working a full-time job in a silicon valley tech company. It was one of the hardest things I ever did. Fun fact: I sold 150 copies of the book in an Indiegogo campaign when I barely had a poor-first draft of the manuscript available!
