ISHITA BROUGHT A BREADTH OF KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE to the Young Female Entrepreneur’s “Clear Your Fear” panel. Her ability to engage the audience with wisdom, humor, and advice, and her synergy with the other speakers made this one of our most successful events.
ISHITA’S STORY WAS ACCESSIBLE, RELATABLE, AND TOTALLY GENUINE – she is truly a force for change and authenticity. Like the best stories, her 2012 TEDxTalk focused on the journey, not the destination. Ishita embraced fear as part of her journey and shared her vision for how to use it as a catalyst for revolutionary innovation.
