An international, award-winning speaker who’s been on over 50 stages delivering 100+ talks all over the world
Golden Wrenchead high performing engineer award in 2015.
But it didn’t start that way. Growing up in South India, I was called ‘natti pakodi’ (meaning ‘a stutterer’), ‘torri pallodu’ (meaning an ‘ugly beaver’) and ‘gajji moham’ (meaning ‘scar faced’). As a result, I had a lot of social anxiety, no confidence, and no friends..
Luckily, my wife found me. Things changed when I met her, and she said, “You’re cute, kinda like a movie star.” After that, I made more friends. Another told me, “You’re pretty charismatic.” The words were surprising: they challenged the long-held beliefs I had about myself.
So, I got curious. I went on a journey of self-discovery. I invested thousands in personal development programs to learn from the best coaches and trainers. I pushed back against my insecurities to compete in international speech competitions—and found that I won awards when I did. I coached over 100 professionals, some of them C-suite execs, helping them conquer their fears and fine-tune their communication strategies. I delivered talks all across the world. I got so comfortable in my own skin that I am now unafraid to upload ‘naatu naatu’ dance videos on LinkedIn.
I am 100% authentically me, and I want to help you be 100% authentically you so that you can ask and get what you want with no apologies.
