Training Workshops & Masterclasses

We create a safe space for learning and awareness.

Sonali designs and delivers actionable and engaging half-day workshops and short Masterclasses for leaders and teams on leading with inclusion, raising diversity and inclusion awareness, creating psychological safety and advancing women into leadership.

All learning content can be delivered as an online, live workshop for virtual participants.

Sonali’s learning approach is informed by research and brought to life with her engaging storytelling and rich cultural and leadership experiences. She often hears how her workshops take people by surprise because they weren’t expecting to feel as engaged, thoughtful and energised on a topic most people are hesitant to discuss. That is something you can be assured of when you invite Sonali to speak or train for an audience of any size.
