As the youngest CEO in the Tata group, Avani Davda is the woman behind one of the most talked about brands in recent times – Tata Starbucks.
An MBA graduate, Avani Davda began her career more than a decade ago with the Tatas. A readiness to learn and a willingness to work hard, aided her growth as she gradually gained exposure and experience in India’s retail industry. Last year, when Starbucks officially entered the Indian market, in partnership with Tata, Avani Davda was named as the CEO of the Indian arm of the company.
As Starbucks slowly expands its presence in India, maintaining the standards of the international brand, staying one step ahead of the competition and tapping the Indian consumer market are just a few of the challenges that are in store for Avani Davda in the next few years. However, Avani Davda is unfazed. She is confident of steering the Tata Starbucks brand to success.
Why we find her inspiring:
– For becoming the CEO of a globally renowned brand at the young age of 33.
– For juggling the demanding duties of a high profile job with the responsibilities of motherhood as a mom to a toddler.
– For daring to break the glass ceiling and for being a role model to other young and ambitious Indian women.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths.
