Meet a person with a skill you can use

Dr Falguni Vasavada-Oza

Dr Falguni Vasavada-Oza, 45 Speaker and trainer
A professor of marketing, Vasavada-Oza is a passionate advocate for body positivity and equal rights for women

Available for: Webinars and virtual workshops
Charges: Price on request
Email: falguni.vasavada@gmail.com

Talking to people comes naturally to Dr Falguni Vasavada-Oza, given that she is a professor of strategic marketing at Ahmedabad's MICA and has been teaching for over two decades now

Vasavada-Oza is a three-time TEDx speaker, who spoke about body positivity, redefining beauty standards and internalising happiness.

According to her, body positivity has been wrongly understood as a concept meant only for "fat women". She thinks it is a social movement that can empower everyone, across genders and body types, because no one is immune to the rigid beauty standards perpetuated by the mainstream. Hers is a fight to encourage people from being conscious about their body to being confident about it.

Recommended by: Nilam Patel, managing director of India operations at S&P Global, says, "I have heard Dr Falguni speak a couple of times over the past few years. Her ability to present her thoughts with clarity and conviction keeps everyone engaged."
