Preethi Nair, author of Gypsy Masala, is a writer and entrepreneur whose incredible story motivates audiences all over the world. Author and social entrepreneur Preethi pioneered a global business from her bedroom desk. She inspires and empowers audiences on the ability of overcoming obstacles and the art of possibility.
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 won the Asian Woman of Achievement award, and 'Pru' Menon' (her alter ego) was short-listed for PPC Publicist of the Year.
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 in business.
Most recently, she has written, acted and produced her first West End stage play “Sari: The Whole Five Yards.”
Preethi’s incredible journey to success provides endless material for her talks, and she is able to cover the art of possibility, empowerment and using creativity to overcome obstacles.
Her speaking topics include:
- Change your story, change your world
- Be outside the box
- ‘Dive in’
