What do I do?
"I provoke thoughts and situations to positively disrupt your life and catapult you into a new future".
VANDANA SAXENA PORIA IS A MASTER STORYTELLER AND CURATOR WHO ALTERS PERSPECTIVE THOUGHTS THROUGH DIVERSITY, INCLUSION AND BUILDS PEOPLES ECO-SYSTEMS.
I have the courage to imagine the world differently and act on that vision. Over the past 40 years, I’ve drawn insights from people, education and the environment – in fact from everything around me. As a Chartered Accountant, I have learnt how we value businesses, but was never taught how we value lives. So I made that my mission – creating frameworks for people to work out how to value their own life and others that they care for, so they can take actionable steps for holisitic growth. Having lived and worked in over 20 countries, I’ve seen how fundamentally similar we all are and how we create differences to protect ourselves from fears that we have created in our own minds.
As a storyteller of life, I live beyond the artificial boundaries we impose on ourselves and go where no one dares to think or imagine. I tell stories that take you away from where you are, so you can see what’s really possible beyond the imaginable… and help you realise what you can do with it.
I’ve worked with companies and leaders across the globe, from Credit Suisse to Mahindra’s, to the street cleaners of Koregaon Park and have been recognised on many levels for innovation and service – from global Institutes of repute to HM The Queen of England. I’ve also been recognised by the Chaiwallah, Saajan who sits on the corner of Lane 7 – his words mean so much to me.
