Show Notes Chapter Markers

This, the 89th episode of our award-winning series, MVP - The Master's Voice podcast, is very special, because it marks the publication of our audio podcast  with a separate video version too (on YouTube). My distinguished guest on this episode is young Keshav Maheshwari, Managing Director of Allen Overseas. We had a captivating conversation about Allen Overseas' strong growth through international expansion, and the remarkable potential of digital technology in the education industry. 

Disarmingly self-effacing and passionate, Keshav spoke of his dedication to innovation and the invaluable guidance he receives from his family and the LinkedIn community. 

Keshav, who loves to sing and strums the guitar too, revealed that his family's musical talent runs deep, with an interest in music and singing being a cherished tradition. (We got him to sing a favourite Arijit Singh song too. 

Allen Overseas' unwavering commitment to providing quality
education. Allen Overseas has become a powerhouse in its space by assembling
top-notch faculty, creating effective academic pedagogies, and developing
comprehensive study materials. And, of course, Keshav is driving their current growth-focus
by establishing a stronger presence in the Middle East, empowering students to
excel and build successful careers. They have 7 centres already in the GCC,
with another 3 planned.

While he is excited about the potential of AI and ChatGPT to revolutionize the learning experience, Keshav also emphasises the importance of human intervention to maintain the quality of education, and cautions against over-reliance on AI-generated content

All this, and much more, in my chat with Keshav Maheshwari, MD of Allen Overseas. For me, it was an enriching peep into a young leader’s mind, and I hope you too find this an engaging and rewarding conversation. Thank you for your time.
