In this one hour talk, I will show you how to use effective storytelling techniques to craft your three minute pitch, a powerful resume and cover letter, to help you achieve greater influence, stand out in a crowd, and win your next job opportunity
Remember the days and nights when you studied long and hard. Recall the time and finances you invested in your education. Imagine your dreams for years to come. It's time to market the most valuable belonging you've invested in.....yourself!

BIO:

One day I was Benjamin Franklin, busy building foundations of United States. The other day, I could imagine myself in Garibaldi's military attire uniting Italy. The next day, I was Marie Curie, working with magical chemical compounds. I was in love with stories passing childhood in 1980s. Years after I studied computers and trained myself with top notch technical skills. But all that background didn't transcend to my beginning business aspiration. The first company that I co-founded was not a technology start-up fairy tale and miserably failed. The sole reason? We didn't have the right story to tell the right audience!

It took me three technology entrepreneurship experiences and years in technical marketing with multinational telecom companies to internalize storytelling mindset. And as soon as I thoroughly got it, it became the impact I wanted to make. I help people and organizations to tell impeccable and impactful stories.
