Yamini led our leadership team on a storytelling journey which was remarkable in both its insight and impact. Her ability to identify and distil the key elements of a situation, and package these into an engaging narrative, drawing on emotion and instinct as well as logic, is unique in my experience. Yamini transforms the mundane to the inspiring, thereby bringing to life both the story and the storyteller.
Grant Kelley, Chief Executive Officer, Vicinity Centres Limited
Yamini presented an engaging and impactful storytelling masterclass to hundreds of members of our Business Chicks community. She delivered her unique presentation with passion, commitment and beautiful storytelling. The feedback from the audience was overwhelmingly positive — she truly captured people’s hearts and minds.
Olivia Ruello, CEO, Business Chicks
I have been privileged to have a long association with Yamini. She brings a positive spirit and infectious energy to her work and always leaves behind a lasting impression. More than 10 years on, people from my old team still comment on Yamini’s engaging educational sessions, with great content and challenging fun exercises that have made a real difference to their ability to connect with people in their lives.
John Burgin, Chairman ICT Committee, ANZ India Business Chamber
One of the greatest enduring skills of leaders is their ability to convey messages and learnings through Storytelling. It has been with us for centuries and will remain for many centuries to come. Yamini is to storytelling as apple is to pie. They go together in a natural way. The ability to convey messages through stories, with humour and feeling makes them memorable. Yamini makes us all better story- tellers and therefore leaders.
Peter Baines OAM, Founder, Hands Across Water
I’ve yet to meet a person who hasn’t called themselves ‘Yamini’s #1 fan’ after seeing her speak. She is breathtaking in every way. Authentic and professional, hilarious and insightful, big on inspiration but even bigger on practical value. Audiences don’t just learn a few things or feel good for a few hours after seeing Yamini on stage. They find the courage and clarity to make immediate changes in their work, life and relationships, resulting in a tsunami of positive impact in their careers, families, organisations and communities. If you want a speaker who doesn’t just nail the brief, but leaves your audience enthralled, pick up the phone and call her agent ASAP!
Mykel Dixon, award-winning speaker and Creative Leadership Expert, author of Everyday Creative: A dangerous guide to making magic a work
Yamini’s ability to help leaders unlock the power of storytelling in a fun and authentic way is inspiring, insightful and transformative. I am forever grateful that our paths crossed many years ago. Yamini has had such an impact on me, and I am sure on many others.
