Welcome message from Gopesh Raichura, CEO & Founder, smoothmind®

It’s an absolute pleasure and privilege to have you here engaging with smoothmind. I’ve been helping businesses and consumers to successfully connect through meaningful digital experiences for over 20 years.

I’m massively passionate about the opportunity digital innovation brings in helping us to have better connected experiences with one another. However, I believe this shouldn’t come at the cost of unethical business practices in the use of technology and data. What’s important for me is to enable our global community at scale with impartial, thought-provoking insights that will inspire, encourage and support us in shaping positive global change.

A Transformational Journey

Over the last 8.5 years, I have specialised in data-driven Digital Transformation. This journey first started with Oracle Marketing Cloud between 2015 and 2018, where I led the EMEA thought leadership practice for 3.5 years. You can see a sample of events where I presented on stage via the events archive.

With Oracle, I clocked-up 100+ hours on stage as a Professional Speaker and Data Evangelist. Here I helped business leaders embrace an ethical approach to unifying and utilising data on their digital transformation journeys. By doing so, they placed their customers at the heart of digital engagement, leading to increased customer lifetime value growth.

I subsequently joined Salesforce for what was just shy of 5-years between June 2018 and April 2023. During that time, I served as a Senior Consultant in the Marketing Cloud Professional Services department. In this exciting role, I was a trusted advisor to CXO-level business leaders for Digital Transformation. This included Centre of Excellence (CoE), Data Governance and Business Value Success alignment across the full customer lifecycle. My roster included some of Salesforce’s largest global clients spanning Financial Services, Retail, Energy, Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG), and Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) categories, and more.

Finding My Passion in Career and Life

I recently made the decision to stop climbing the corporate ladder and instead to follow my passion, which is encapsulated in smoothmind®. I’ve always had a love for all things digitally-infused and at the heart of it all, I believe we can use it to make real positive change in the world.

The smoothmind® brand was first established in 2012 as a Digital Blog, which was used to channel my mind in advocating for positive, digital change. It has continued to morph into something with a greater purpose over the years… So, it goes without saying that as of today (16th Feb 2024), I’m super-thrilled to announce the official business launch of Smoothmind Limited, and what better time; given we’ve just reached our 12th anniversary since initial Blog conception.

The journey to get the business launch-ready has been an epic one of highs and lows, as I am sure you can expect, but I have come out of it stronger and more determined than ever to surprise and delight as the business continues expand over time.
