The Secrets of the Storyteller

Yes, we have got the news too. It is the age of big data, analytics and artificial intelligence but has the pendulum swung too far to the left? In this keynote Dr. Tanvi helps you understand why storytelling is a force no leader can afford to ignore. A key tenet of her keynote is that technology is the lowest form of competitive advantage, for a more sustainable advantage you must leverage storytelling. Tanvi has some war stories that will compel you to consider learning the art of storytelling as a secret weapon of choice to outsmart your competitors and create a powerful connect with your audience and clients alike.

Architects of the future

Leadership is an old economy term explains Dr. Tanvi. In this keynote, she walks you through the core ideas that are changing the way we lead ourselves and our organisations. As the world moves from hierarchies to networks, what must we do differently, what did they not teach you, and why what they did teach you is already redundant! Listen to some of the most cutting edge ideas on what it means to be a leader in the times we live in as curated by her alongside the world's leading thinkers. Prepare to leave with fresh insights and ideas that you can work with right away.

Audacity of authenticity

A keynote that will fundamentally alter your view of what it means to be an inclusive and diverse workplace and why anyone should bother with it at all. Past attendees have been moved deeply with the truth of the keynote that resonates beyond the jargon being thrown around in the name of diversity and inclusion. Using powerful stories, personal anecdotes and examples Dr. Tanvi walks the audience through the real reason they must all stand up for an inclusive organisation.

Dr. Gautam's ability to tell stories that tie in her personal experiences to leadership is brilliant. She is a great storyteller, who uses this skill to perfection in drawing in her audiences. She has great energy and her passion for her work and the topics she speaks about is evident and a thrill to watch.


What an incredible session it was! Highly recommended for any leader serious about engagement and influence through storytelling. I can't think who else better to introduce leaders to the art and science of storytelling than Dr Tanvi Gautum.
