Representing India at the Global Speakers Summit in New Zealand

Proud to lead the Indian delegation to New Zealand for the Global Speakers Summit 2018. This is the World’s largest gathering of professional speakers and a place where some of the World’s best speakers get together to learn from each other.

If you are a professional speaker and want to join us for this 4 day event, please let me know.

The GSS team wants to encourage our fledgling Professional Speakers Association of India (PSAI) chapter by giving us an early bird price offer. Please let me know if you are interested. Just like the delegation to the Asian convention in Singapore this year, let’s have a super strong team for the Global Speakers Summit in New Zealand in Feb 2018.

Gearing up for Techspectations 2.0, Kerala’s Largest Digital Summit

As a professional speaker, one of the things that make you genuinely happy is when you get invited back again. Last year, I helped host Techspectations, Kerala’s largest Digital event. The event was a grand success and you know it in your bones even before you get feedback from the participants. Today, I was roped in to host the next edition taking place on February 2, 2018.

It was great meeting with Boby Paul, General Manager, Marketing at Malayalam Manorama Group to discuss how we can raise the bar for the next edition. Planning for bigger names, newer formats, greater interaction with the audience. Very excited for it.

The New President of the Global Speakers Federation

Congratulations Shirley Taylor on taking over as the President of the Global Speakers Federation. She succeeds the awesome Nabil Doss, who did a stellar job. This handover took place at Influence 2017, the annual event at Orlando, Florida, conducted by National Speakers Association.

Shirley was earlier the President of Asia Professional Speakers Singapore. She is a ‘Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), awarded to only 11% of professional speakers who have proved their mettle. More about her at http://www.ShirleyTaylor.com

On behalf of PSAI, wish you an amazing year of leadership, Shirley.

Heading Back to Malaysia to Speak at The Pangkor Dialogue

Very excited and proud to be invited back to speak at The Pangkor Dialogue Conference for the second year in a row.

The Pangkor Dialogue is an international knowledge exchange that takes place in the city of Ipoh in Malaysia. The event aims to inspire sustainable economic growth in the region in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The theme for this year’s Pangkor Dialogue is ‘Making the Future’. The goal is to explore possible innovations and solutions to achieve the sustainable development goals in Agenda 2030.

Proud to join fellow speakers, Dr.Amartya Sen, Pepsico CEO Indra Nooyi and best-selling author, Simon Sinek. My goal is to get all three on my leadership podcast.

Last year’s event is special for me because I got to meet Fredrik Haren who laid the foundation for the creation of Professional Speakers Association of India.
