Biren Bhuta

Biren Bhuta – Founder director at Disom Foundation

Biren is the Founder Director of Disom Foundation, which runs Disom – The Leadership School. An experiment to reimagine leadership in our public spaces. To nurture leaders who are guided by an inner voice. Leaders who believe in deep democracy and seva bhaav.

Biren embarked on his career as a banker in Chennai. He gave it up to cut his teeth as a broadcast journalist with NDTV, where he reported on business, finance and the economy extensively.

The search for a deeper engagement with India took him to Bastar in Chhattisgarh. Indigenous living and thinking reshaped his worldview; he believes that to save the world, we must embrace indigenousity.

Biren’s longest stint has been with Tata Steel, as the Chief of Corporate Social Responsibility. It led him to create a hallmark — an international tribal identity conclave called Samvaad, which is a robust mobilisation even today. He left the company in 2018.

An alumnus of IIM-Calcutta, a fellow of the Management Development Programme of Ross Business School, Michigan, and a recipient of the Gurukul Fellowship from the Foundation for Universal Responsibility of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Biren serves on the board of Gram Vikas in Odisha, Bhasha Research and Publication Centre in Gujarat, and SeSTA in Assam.

Previously, Biren has briefly but passionately worked for the conservation of the Olive Ridley sea turtles in Odisha with IUCN. He loves Urdu poetry and Hindustani classical music.

Biren will take the stage at TEDxBistupur to share his inspirational life journey led by the constant pursuit of.. WHAT NEXT?
