Mr. Naresh Gulati, born at Chandigarh [India], is the CEO and founder of the OCA Group Pty Ltd, Melbourne Australia. He started his business journey at the age of 15, selling candles on the road side during Diwali at Chandigarh to reduce hardships on family after his father’s business had failed. This enterprise was funded by Rs. 5, 000 as seed money sourced from a few relatives. He sold candles for four years after which he switched to selling fabrics on the roadside. At the recommendation of a friend he decided to pursue a diploma course in electronic data processing to get a clerical job. Upon completion of the course Mr. Gulati set up a computer centre Chandigarh. Gradually he diversified his business and also set up a distribution company Biotique cosmetics.

With his economic condition improving, he decided to move to Australia in 1996 to pursue a post graduate course in information systems from RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. He faced major problems as an international student due to improper guidance from different sources. Oceanic Consultants Australia was a direct result of the Australian education experience. Studying during the day and working night shifts to meet expenses and pay the fees was the only way to cope in a country where the support group was also limited. Realising that he could not be the only person with this experience Mr Gulati started a business that would guide students in the right direction and provide them impartial advice. He approached various academic institutions and put a business proposition to enhance their offer to international students. A subsequent business idea by Mr. Gulati spawned BPO Intelligence that helps universities and educational institutions increase their revenue base by reducing costs in printing, storage, marketing, document processing and global mail outs.

Started with an initial investment of AUD 3,500, this enterprise, now known as the Oceanic Consultants Australia (OCA Group) Pty Ltd, is valued at more than AUD 120 million. A highly successful businessman and visionary, Mr. Gulati is a sought after speaker at numerous industry forums and conferences organised by various institutions such as University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia, Microsoft India etc.
