Speaking

We hired Akash for our Asia-Pacific, European and North American conferences and he was a big hit! His session was exactly what we needed. I would highly recommend his programs - our team could not get enough.

Akash led a session with my team and a large group of folks in our organisation (Sony Pictures Entertainment)...It was close to the most engaging and entertaining workshop I've probably ever attended. Personally I've had at least half a dozen different versions of presentation training over the last decade or so, and this one gave me by far the best tools and energy to take back to my day to day. Dynamic, relevant and directly useful for our business.

Akash’s energy is infectious, drawing in the crowd effortlessly, with powerful examples that hit home!
Shaleena Mulchandani
Product Manager
Akash has a way of engaging a room full of people and getting them to participate. Sales meetings can be rough, especially when they are several days long, but Akash came into ours 2 years in a row and refocused and re-energized us. He is an energetic storyteller, and I have adopted several of his suggestions with great success.

At the HR summit, Akash was invited by HRM Asia for a workshop . It was full of fun and enthusiasm. From the start till the end of his presentation the crowd were deeply engrossed. He is a crowd puller and an excellent story teller.

I was impressed by Akash's humor, professionalism and skills. The audience was really engaged. After the workshop, he shared his experiences being an author to a group of audience. We asked many questions and he answered all those---patiently and authentically.

I am learning so very much from Akash. Only two lessons into the training I can’t express how excited I am! Hiring him was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Irma Parone
CEO
We had the pleasure of working with Mr. Karia to coach 30 speakers for the "Bridges Talks" and guide them to excellence in their speeches. All of the speakers he coached were excited to work with him and the guidance he provided was second to none. With his very busy schedule of travels and coaching lessons around the world, Akash was very flexible when it came to scheduling a session, as it could be held online. Akash Karia is an exceptional public speaking coach
Hatim Ali
Event Co-ordinator
We hired Akash to spend 2.5 days with 50 "know-it-all" sales people in an industry for which he is not an expert (sports marketing). Definitely some anxiety that this could quickly crash and waste 125 days worth of productivity for our company. Instead, everyone left invigorated, a bag full of new presentation tactics, and a confidence to direct conversations in a productive manner. The most impressive part was that he maintained extremely high levels of engagement throughout the program. Happy to share more about the experience we had with Akash leading our off-site conference

On top of the powerful, practical techniques that the audience can apply immediately to become a charismatic speaker, watching Akash conduct the workshop is another value added. The way he engaged the audience, structured his materials, and delivered the presentation is a case study itself that can inspire you to design and ace your next business presentation.
Mengxi Liu
General Manager
I had the opportunity along a with a crowd of enthusiastic listeners across age groups to listen to Akash on a Sunday afternoon. The session was thought provoking with his insights from speaking / writing. He demonstrated nuances by exploring the thought process of charismatic speakers and made the art of speaking look simple.Needless to say he practiced deftly what he preached and was a delight for the audience.Look forward to seeing him wow audiences again.

I had the privilege to have heard Akash Karia delivered a captivating and engaging presentation. Excellent job! Great valuable tools learnt and benefited from your expertise!
Mary Low
Senior VP
I had the opportunity to work with Akash at TEDx. He was one of the most enthusiastic and motivated speakers, and one of the most friendly, presentable and confident people I have ever met. I would not forget how Akash stayed for the whole of rehearsals, helping out other speakers and practicing his lines over and over again despite already being perfect. I highly recommend Akash for his passion, persistence and talent.

His coaching leaves an impact. Akash makes you think on your feet by immediately getting you to use the techniques he introduces.
Swetal Sindhvad

To put it simply, Akash was a hit! The crowd of medical communications professionals were pleasantly surprised by his upbeat, engaging, interactive and vibrant presentation that was rooted in research and evidence. It is testament to how well Akash did that he was invited back for more focused sessions with a smaller group. I would highly recommend him for corporate/motivational trainings and seminars!
Taha Khan
Event Organizer
I had the pleasure of taking two of Akash’s workshops at Bristol-Myers Squibb. His workshops were by far the best workshops I’ve ever attended. He is incredibly engaging, inspirational, and energizing! He grabs the audience and keeps them mesmerized— you just want to lean in and listen. More importantly, he makes his audience really feel like they can rise up and be more inspirational leaders themselves.
