About Us


Our Story

Our core team came up with the idea of a training initiative over several discussions and brainstorming sessions in Villa go8485 in the midst of calm and serene surroundings. The first germination of the seed took place in yet another wonderful location, The National Gallery of Modern Art. Our cofounders met here for the first time and from there the idea of KITES STUDIO has taken shape. The core team brings in-depth expertise in Executive Coaching, Life Coaching, Training & Development, and Wellness.
