Drawing on her skills as a Musician, two times TED X speaker and award-winning Startup Founder, Sudha is a rare breed of Coach and Facilitator.

The unique blend of her creativity with business acumen, has led Sudha to become an in-demand Pitch Coach and Trainer, helping hundreds of international companies and individuals get their ideas off the ground, pitch for investment and engage audiences.

Sudha graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Drama, after which her long-standing passion for music blossomed into a 25-year career as the Percussionist with bands such as Faithless, The Spice Girls, and Dido. She has headlined at Festivals, Arenas & Stadiums around the world including Glastonbury, Madison Square Gardens & Wembley Arena, learning to perform and deliver at the highest level.

Sudha brings this experience into the training room, where she encourages delegates to bring out their authentic selves, to connect with their passion, and communicate with confidence and belief. Her style is warm, relaxed and empowering, with a learning-by-doing approach.

Outside of the training room, Sudha likes to engage with ventures for social good. In 2014, she set up a Social Enterprise called Shake Your Power and was presented with the role of Ambassador for the European Commission’s Sustainability Week, as well as multiple awards for her entrepreneurial endeavours. She loves to help the next generation prepare for real world challenges and is a regular guest lecturer at Nottingham Trent University.

Sudha is a practicing Buddhist, geeks out on Biochemistry, is fascinated by nutrition, and is partial to a good pun.

She’s obsessed with boxing and could tell you a story about the time when she trained in secret with the Cuban Olympic trainer on a rooftop in Havana, where it is illegal for women to box. It certainly packs a punch!
