At this gathering, you will hear from Minoti Parikh, one of the most well-respected and in demand Master of Ceremonies in India. Now based in Leeds, Minoti moved to Leeds from Mumbai and has continued her glittering career here in the UK.
Inspiring Women Changemakers is set up to support women leaders enhance their influence and personal profile. We are excited to bring in a true professional who will share her tips on:
- How to create a strong start and a strong close
- How to handle difficult questions
- Techniques for inner calm and external poise
- Consider how to build our own personal brand
After her talk, we will discuss in groups which techniques we use that work – and haven’t worked so well. This is an opportunity to network with your peers over a glass of wine and canapes and trade the strategies that we have found effective in our professional lives.
With more than 12 years’ experience and 25 countries visited during her career, she’s made an appearance at over 1500 live shows and has hosted events for major brands such as Pepsi, P&G, Nissan, Apple, HSBC and Vodafone, to name but a few.
Minoti holds a Master’s degree in Marketing and Industrial Psychology. University educated and academically ambitious, it took many by surprise when Minoti embarked on a career in the entertainment industry. Her work as a TV presenter has brought her into contact with high-profile world leaders and area specialists.
Minoti has had the honour of sharing the stage with the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi; President of India, Mr Pranab Mukherjee; Business Leaders Ratan Tata, Laxmi Mittal; actors such as Shah Rukh Khan and sports personalities such as Sachin Tendulkar.
She has also presented a sports programme on Indian national television channel, Star Sports for seven years in the ‘man’s world’ of car racing. She has also presented business panel discussions on channels like CNN-IBN, Bloomberg and CNBC.
Extending her expertise in the ‘experience and customer engagement’ space, Minoti has launched a bespoke experience day venture catering to individuals and corporate clients, This Pampered Life (TPL). TPL takes away the hassle of planning and executing activities whilst giving personalised attention to each client.
The event will formally run from 17:00-19:00. Registration is from 16:30 - please do arrive early to network and have refreshments.
