Storytelling makes the change happen
We live in a world where there is too much information and very little time. So, what doesn’t connect, obviously gets ignored.
But stories that resonate are a super glue of attention and affinity. As a result, impossible to ignore.
They have the power to perform in time-poor, digitally accelerated, and diverse working environments.
This 45 min talk is designed to be your practical guide to becoming a storyteller and a story listener.

Storytelling for Diversity and Inclusions
The corporate world was quick to romance the idea of diversity. We nodded our heads and signed on the treaty called – Diversity leads to Creativity and Innovation.
However, diversity comes with language barriers, disputes over cultural differences which makes embracing diversity discomforting.
This 45 min talk is about ways you can really reap the benefits of diversity.
Storytelling for Women in the Workforce
This talk is about very specific situations in the corporate world where women decide not to speak or to speak ineffectively to avoid the bragging trap and as a result, become hidden figures.
Practical, logical, and methodical storytelling ensures that stories from women are not , ignored, or treated as gossip. The talk empowers women to use the natural power of storytelling in those moments when we feel overwhelmed with the pressures unique to us.
Women in Boardrooms
Boardroom communication challenges for women, in a corporate setting is a less discussed topic. A lot has been written about ways women can find their voice on a stage.
Prerequisites of an effective stage delivery are Credibility and Self-confidence.
However, boardroom communication requires more than credibility and self-confidence. Boardrooms are about interruptions, being ignored, and being challenged.
This 30 mins talk is designed to give you ways to succeed in boardrooms

I have enjoyed working and collaborating with Anjali. She has an amazing ability to break the craft of storytelling into pieces that helps the learning process. She also takes great pride and care in customizing her work such that they have maximum impact on the audience.
If I have to use a few adjectives to describe Anjali - it would be curious, hardworking, bold, and inspiring! I met Anjali in Guangzhou -over two days she impacted me with her enthusiasm, commitment, and passion to uplift everyone in her session. She really inspired each one of us to craft our compelling and bold stories. We met in Sydney again and I was deeply impacted by her curiosity and hard work and her amazing keynote on Stories about Diversity and Inclusion. She is not one of those who will settle for less than best in her work. Lastly, her personal journey is a true reflection of what you see in her every day- bold choices she made, took a leap out of the fog onto an upward journey, open-minded to embrace the winding road, and curious to learn at every step. It is a delight to work with her.
