Akash Gautam: Chief Trainer Taxila
Hi! I am Akash
I’m a full time seeker of God & a part time Motivator, Trainer & Blogger. I TALK to make people Happy Energetic & Focused. I do not do TALKS which do not CHANGE Lives. My friends think I’m a comedian too. But frankly, I take it as a huge compliment because I truly believe that ‘There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way to everything.’ Personally, I feel that I am a serious student of ‘Living Life Better’.
A decade & a half back; I decided to extend my funny but inspirational take on life onto my Events / Trainings. I feel humbled when a lot of India calls me its favorite ‘Edu-Tainer’ & ‘Enter-Trainer’. I work hard to make my motivational sessions- highly researched, new, youthfully refreshing & funny too.
I am progressively trying to simplify my life & also the lives of the people around me for the last 15 years. I have never given less than 100% while I interacted with more than 5 lakh youth at some great corporate boardrooms, College & School auditoriums. I have come to realize that motivating people to lead simpler, happier and better lives is like meditation for me.
I have lots on the agenda next. I want to run more, meditate & pray more, read more, laugh more, travel more & more than all – Inspire more and touch the lives of more and more people.
Journey so far:
God is gracious! I had dreamt of huge auditoriums, dreamful audience, powerful mikes, LCDs & sound systems & then ‘Me’ extending myself onto all this. All my dreams came true. Now, ‘It is Thanks giving time’.
Born and brought up in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh (an extremely beautiful place to grow up), I did my Post Graduation in Fashion from NIFT, New Delhi. But I jettisoned the Fashion to pursue my Passion. My work has allowed me to travel a lot and meet many wonderful people all over the world.
My 'Corporate Training' client list includes the who's who of the Services Industry in India. Top brands in Retail, Insurance, Flying, Education, Pharma, Fashion & Telecom regularly engage me for some very bigly impacting work.
As a Speaker and Personality development trainer I have delivered sessions right across India in (300 + )many famous colleges like IIMs, IITs, IIITs, NITs, ISM, Xaviers, Presidency, St. Stephens , reputed B-Schools, many more.
I have always cherished working with & impacting some very interesting set of people e.g. from training Miss India beauty pageant contestants to imparting life skills to Tihar Jail inmates & rural women of Haryana – work has been very gratifying. I also enjoy speaking at TEDx talks across the country.
In my free time, I also write. My ‘Dil Say’ blog has been a hit among the readers and I regularly try to impact the 50,000+ people on my Social Media through my Facebook & Twitter updates. I remembered the entire Oxford Dictionary during my late college days and you can check me on the same anytime! My initiative ‘Akash Ka Vocab Dhaba’ has become Asia’s biggest community of its kind on FB.
Yet, I believe that the best is yet to come.
