Vishaal became a trustee in 2015. He graduated from UCL Medical School in 2011 and worked as a doctor for two years. He then became fascinated by the business world and transitioned into management consulting. Vishaal currently works at the healthcare consulting firm Mansfield Advisors, advising CEOs on their growth strategies.
Outside of his day job Vishaal is Chair of the Curriculum Committee at a local primary school in North London, and helped the school achieve an ‘Outstanding’ rating from Ofsted in 2015. In 2014 Vishaal co-founded a voluntary organisation called Doctorpreneurs, which provides entrepreneurship education and internship opportunities to medical students.
In his spare time Vishaal likes to volunteer at Mencap summer camps for young people, go hostelling around the world, and go on short walks in the countryside followed by long pub lunches.
As a trustee Vishaal is looking forward to using his experience working with young people to make YHA even more relevant to what young people want.
