How to build resilience through creativity – Preethi Nair

9 February 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

  • About the presenter/business:

Preethi Nair left her job as a management consultant to publish her first novel Gypsy Masala. Not having the resources to rent an office, she established an ‘international PR agency’ in her bedroom and appointed feisty director ‘Pru Menon’ (an alter ego) to energetically hype her book. Nobody else knew of her plan. Working as several different people and with a frenetic double life, Preethi gained substantial press coverage. After two years and an amazing journey, she signed a three-book deal with HarperCollins.

Preethi went on to set up Kiss the Frog, a company that takes storytelling to organisations and is a professor at various business schools, promoting creativity as a key skill for leadership.

  • What you will get from the session:

Preethi will share her remarkable story and you will understand:

– How the stories we tell ourselves shape who we become

– How rejection is often redirection

Preethi will also share a creative writing exercise to build creativity, resilience and wellbeing.

  • Testimonials

“When Preethi is hired to share her unique insight into story creation she does so by opening a window into her own amazing life. Within an event that boasted other speakers such as Sir Bob Geldof, she was the one most were impressed by and wanted to follow up with. If your brand or business has a story that customers should value go talk to her”

Head of Customer Excellence, What If! – The Innovation Company

“In the search for things to inspire or ignite the creative process, you’ll be pretty hard pressed to find a more compelling and inspiring adventure and storyteller than Preethi Nair. Hire her!”

Head of ITV Imagine
