Sanjaya Shrestha is the Business Development Manager for Nepasoft

Shrestha needed to give sales presentations as a routine part of
his new job, but when he started in the position, he was not

When Mr. Shrestha logged on to www.bizmantra.org, he quickly found tools for
assisting managers in honing their presentation skills. After
studying the relevant articles and using related tools, he now

Shrestha explains that BizMantra helped him increase sales and
bring in new opportunities for his business: His new presentation
skills played an important role in his landing three new big
corporate clients. Impressed with his own results, he invited his
colleagues to use the BizMantra Toolkit as well. Now, Nepasoft’s
account manager has taken a keen interest in local information on
Value Added Tax (VAT), e-commerce, and legal and insurance content,
and the company is considering reviewing their accounting practices
in light of the available information.
