Ambika Vasudev is a career-driven and confident woman who is UNSTOPPABLE in life. She’s passionate about one thing – helping students become confident to dream big and to realise their dreams. Ever since the importance of guiding people at the right time became obvious to her, she let go of everything including her existing career to achieve what she set out for. Trained by the likes of Tony Robbins, Sam Cawthorn and Blair Singer, Ambika knows exactly what it takes to give your career a flying start.
Ambika realized very early that Confidence is not just a necessity, but it’s mandatory to be successful in life. As a high-profile company secretary, she was earning well but it failed to offer satisfaction. And, just as she realized that she couldn’t surrender to circumstances surrounding her life anymore, she began coaching high-school children as the First Confidence Coach of India. Truth be told, she spent all her life savings on her mission, but nothing could dissuade her from following her passion.
From working with children to their equally wide-eyed parents with lofty dreams in their eyes, her sessions meant to create awareness about the critical role of confidence became the talk of the town. It was at this point of time that she took it a step further by being certified as a Global Career Counsellor from UCLA. And, after being trained by some of the best career counsellors in the world, she finally launched her company Duende Education (OPC) Pvt. Ltd. that caters to students, undergraduates and everybody else looking for some guidance regarding their career and success in life.
She’s on a mission to create the biggest transformation of the era by helping people become more confident in life.

As a career counsellor, I have met thousands of people throughout the course of my life. I’ve seen extremely successful people lead their lives as if they were born to rule the world. They knew what they wanted to do. And they went after it with everything they had, heart, mind and soul. There’s one characteristic that sets successful people apart from others. Makes them stand out like lions amidst a herd of sheep. It’s easy to spot them, thanks to that unmistakable aura. What is that quality? I’ve had many people write to me. They express their fears, lack of self-esteem. They tell me how they shiver at the thought of addressing people. Whether it’s a public speech or a social gathering, fear grips them and prevents them from doing anything else. Some of my friends also have the same problem. Not that they don’t work hard. No. They give everything they have. Yet, they struggle to become successful. So, what is that quality that separates successful people from others? You guessed it. It’s confidence. I’ve observed that most people are willing to work and give it their best shot, but they lack confidence. What exactly is confidence, though? Is it some mysterious secret you can’t possess? And why is it so hard to gain confidence especially when you need it the most? Well, confidence is a momentary emotion of clarity, certainty and control. Clarity of your thoughts, control over your mind, body and actions, and certainty for performance followed by commitment to your goal. Confidence is derived from “fidere” – from Latin, which means “trust”. Simply put, confidence is about trusting yourself. Then why does that trust waver at times? Because confidence is not permanent. It’s a momentary strength that needs to be practiced.
