Confident and thought-provoking - These are the two words that best describes Dr Lakshmi. I've had the pleasure of working with her on more than one occasion, and she always brings her best for the audience. The presentation she delivered at The World Success Summit 2019 was one of the highlights of our conference. In her presentation, Dr Lakshmi shared a productivity model she developed through years of research, and it was very well received by the audience. I highly recommend her as a speaker for your next conference.

Challenges to Meaningful Changes
Challenges and tough times bring about meaningful changes.
We seldom realize it when going through such times.
This realization is important to adapt and thrive. It helps turn obstacles into opportunities. It helps sustain productivity. It brings joy and contentment even in the most difficult times.
Through this Keynote Talk which is closest to my life and heart, I inspire people to live life to its fullest while being joyful and content.
Intuitive Decision Making
How do you make decisions under pressure, when in a crisis, when there is no sufficient data, and when things are uncertain?
When faced with such situations, people look up to their leaders, be it a government, organization or family. One bad decision can result in huge losses.
Drawing in from a personal, adventurous experience of braving the floods, I share how our intuition can be tapped into for making crucial, life saving decisions.
Carving a Career in Science
In the past 20 + years, I have moved from academic to industry research, science communications and advocacy, to research administration and management.
In my career talks I open up students and early career researchers to the spectrum of science careers that exist over and above the conventional academic route. I inspire them to think through what would be the best career path for them and what they can do to achieve it.
I also highlight on the importance of building a network and transferable skills and making oneself visible and heard through platforms such as LinkedIn and public speaking.
