Being established and goal-oriented, there are 5 mainstays in my life that I consistently subscribe to: neuroticism, machiavellianism, social intelligence, enthusiastic optimism, and ultimately agreeableness, which differentiate me as a High Individual and empowers me to dedicate my time and expertise to energizing others. Conscience and delicacy come to me from volunteering at Samaritans, a Suicide Prevention NGO, and working towards the development of underprivileged children. Scuba diving and zip lining are two of my absolute favorite adventure sports. Capt. Poonam makes it known that you are unique and that you possess GREATNESS. Never let someone else's perception of you become your reality. A person who is observant, deliberative, goal-oriented, competent, and dutiful. I am a sociable person with a strong sense of self-belief.

When you listen to Poonam Mam, trust you will be getting on a plane with a smooth take-off and landing. And on the way, all the turbulence that is provided by the sky, she will maneuver the plane the right way to make you feel at ease. This is probably the best way to describe her motivational talks. At our recent event at Christ University she engaged the audience with her real-life experiences, great anecdotes and ideas to sail through the turbulence in life and have a perfect landing of where you want to reach, leaving everyone inspired.

Captain Poonam is a true Industry Stalwart with utmost discipline . Although She bags her education from premier institutions and working with branded airlines, Her nature of simplicity and motivating the upcoming aspirants is just impeccable .
Captain Poonam came on the DIL International Young Ambassador platform to share her knowledge and experience as a pilot. We have Ambassadors from the UK, China, Morocco, India, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Pakistan and we are still growing. Having Captain Poonam on was not only exciting for the young Ambassadors who range between the ages of 10 and 22, but also knowledge enhancing, engaging and very productive. For some young minds, inspiring and motivating sessions like this help build self esteem and confidence in more ways than one. Captain Poonam was patient in answering questions from the younger ones and also in building a rapport with the older ones on issues relating to cultural sensitivity in various countries visited. All in all it, was a great success and we look forward to continued engagement with and from her especially as she now sits on out platform as a professional mentor.
Ms Poonam's public skills are extraordinary. Each story from her is as captivating as the next, she has this unique backstory that I feel has made her more endearing than most people. Her delivery skills are excellent.
I met Capt Poonam in 2019 during International Women's Day Celebration program. We both shared the dice and there was so much vibes in her aura that I automatically got attracted and we became instant friends. We shared our vision to help out specially abled children as well. Then in Dec 2019 , I got an opportunity to invite her for the annual day celebration of my play school and requested her to deliver a talk on parenting. She nailed that ! I am glad that I came across a vibrant person like you !!
It was amazing working with Poonam. She's a wonderful person very positive and was supportive towards me. She does always extend an helping hand, loves to see people grow. Very confident with great communication skills. Good luck with all that you been doing so far. Keep flying higher.
