The mother of one has spent 14 years in the IT industry working for big local IT firms like, Datec Fiji Limited, GEM IT Solution and Virtual Flex.
“After leaving school while doing my extension at USP I was very lucky out of the lot to get a job immediately in Bondwell computers Nadi in 2004,”
“I worked there for almost one year and while working in Bondwell I was always eager to learn IT and I always admired all the IT professionals,” Dipti said.
She said in the same year she took her Comptia A + Course from Datec and as soon as she passed her exam she was offered a Job role of telesales rep. in Datec.
“In 2005, my journey in Datec was amazing, been around with talented IT /network and software engineers. It was like a dream come true to work for Fiji’s number one IT Firm,”
“As soon as I took up the role of telesales rep. there was no turning back and I was gradually promoted from sales executive to senior sales executive to corporate account manager and team leader sales-west,” Dipti said.
She said she learnt a lot while working for Datec and all thanks to her colleagues and her managers there.
“I was responsible to managing and maintaining old and new clients and get in business from all the corporate clients,” Dipti said.
She said after completing her 10th year in Datec, it was time to move.
“In 2015 November, I joined GEM IT Solution as their business development as senior sales executive,”
“It was amazing working for team GEM. I was doing business development and new sales and promote Dell. I worked there for 6 months,” Dipti said.
She said in 2016 when her husband started his own IT business with his other partners, she thought it was time for her to help his business grow with her experience in sales in IT industry.
“Virtual Flex was a new IT company and it required lots of marketing and awareness. I worked there for a Year and made Virtual Flex as one of those top IT companies in Fiji as IT Solution Provider,” Dipti said.
After finding her footing she finally decided to start up her own business.
“It took me almost 13 years to come out of my comfort zone and do something on my own as I was always confident about myself on whatever I do,” Dipti said.

Dipti is encouraging other women to always trust in themselves and have determination.
“My message to other women is that if you are determined to do something new in your life please go ahead and just do it, move out of your comfort zone and achieve your dreams for what you want to be in life. It’s better to do it rather than regret it for never giving it a try,” Dipti said.
