In this latest episode of Figuring Out Podcast we are in conversation with Toshan Tamhane, an avid adventurer who lives with 1 aim - “regret minimization - you only live once”.
He followed the conventional IIM-A to consulting path - spent 18+ years at McKinsey across 55+ countries, advising billionaires, making deals, and building businesses. Then, a bit bored and a bit reflective, I ventured into traditional corporate roles with a passion for investing, M&As, digital builds & sustainability.
Currently trying to make the full use of 24 hours every day, I also invest in start-ups (~30+ investments), teach in B-schools, serve as an active Board member, and write extensively.
Managing 2 kids (and my wife) is an adventure of a different order. To do this efficiently, he keeps himself fit by climbing mountains in Nepal & the Alps as well as practicing intense sports (kickboxing, bouldering, capoeira, running marathons).
Lastly, he tries to meet and learn from at least 1 person every week - that's 52 intense conversations.
