Neela has vast experience and networks in multiple sectors. She cuts to the chase and will tell you how she can be helpful, or not. She is ... very efficient, clear, direct, and gets results. She is also delightful and funny and the kind of person you just want to hang out with, which is a great quality for a trusted advisor.
