My policy idea: My policy idea is to increase the pace of financial inclusion in India by including non-banked players in the inclusion space. 

Why I came to the Leadership Program: I was looking for a place to hone my skills, and was told by a few people who know Fletcher very well that the Leadership Program is a great program. 

What I have learned that has been very helpful: I've learned how to build an argument that is relevant to your audience, how to be at your persuasive best, and how to keep your ideas simple but effective. These are techniques that are common sense but not common practice.
