Noopur Chib - CoFounder of Courteous Champs
Noopur Chib started her career with one of the leading international airlines. Given her passion for travel and quest to understand cultural diversity around the world, she acquired immense knowledge and exposure on how society and environment, play a key role in the development of people. Her overall experience of 15 years made her master the fundamentals of fine dining, communication and behavioural aspects of individuals. Over a period of time she discovered, that, whether its career or social life, people tend to evaluate others on perception, based on their appearance, behaviour and communication skills.
She took a conscious decision to devote quality time to her children after marriage, as they grew up. To further her aspirations, she ventured in to the field of education and took up the challenge of helping parents to nurture their children in this dynamically evolving society. She realised, that, although schools have considerably evolved in their teaching methodology, curriculum and exposure towards extra curricular activities, there is still a huge gap and lack of focus on the softer aspects, such as etiquette and manners.
After a careful analysis of the gap in our current social environment and the urgent need to inculcate true value systems in our children from an early age, Noopur has ventured to help the parents coach their children and gear them up for a bright future in both their personal and professional life, ahead.
Noopur, has accquired a certification in TESOL(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Language) from INTESOL Worldwide UK, accredited and certified by ALAP( Awarding Language Acquisition for Professionals).
