Shilpi Madan

From serious to silly, I chomp on, mull over and decode it all. There is nothing more powerful for me than the excitement of shaping the written word. I simply live to write. I am a curious mix: I work fabulously as a part of a distributed team. Conversely, I love my own company and enjoy mapping work solo, writing incisive reviews, ruminations, staying connected in the circuit to telescope happenings. I love snooping, sleuthing, ferreting information from achievers. Fine. Blame my training in print reportage under Behram “Busybee” Contractor. Or my method training by P. Sainath. Or my tutelage with the hectoring Jerry Pinto.

Snap look: I have worked as Contributing Editor (till 2016) with Travel + Leisure India & South Asia; Better Homes & Gardens; Child; Discover India; Casaviva…, anchored the release of maestro Zubin Mehta’s biography for a handpicked audience, been the face of the account for Lakme Fashion Week at JWT-IPAN, authored the Top 100 Restaurants & Cafes in Mumbai 2007-08 with Living Media Ltd; been the infamous crusader columnist for Mumbai Mirror; worked as senior executive producer for a luxury telly channel, written mean, unforgivable cover stories for The Brief; essayed exclusive content capsules for www majors (msn, yahoo, zee, accenture…) and written extensively for Embarq, JnNurm, Pidilite, ABM Architects, Leela Kempenski Group of Hotels…

For the hautest in luxury and lifestyle, gourmet gospels, health trends, fashion fritters…; anchoring stylish literary gatherings, ghost writing for product endorsements, creating unique digital content, coffee table books, corporate grooming workshops in soft skills…your search ends with me. Yes, deadlines are sacrosanct. Learning is never linear: I always look for assignments that throw up cerebral challenges. At present I work as Contributing Editor with Millionaire Asia India, Global Spa and Wellness Matters. Pop in a mail. Follow me @ShilpiMadan to connect for assignments.
