“I believe that what makes someone or something different matters. That difference is where new, better possibilities live.”
Who am i?
My name is Crystal Kadakia and I work alongside leaders and changemakers to create and implement initiatives that further the potential of people and planet. An initiative can be as short as keynote or as long as a multi-month team process – regardless, each is thoughtfully crafted for generative power. I am a mapmaker, a synthesizer, and an inclusive perspective gatherer. I am an expert in organizational culture change, as well as a two-time TEDx speaker, international keynoter and an author.
As a person whose identity and narrative represent seemingly polar opposites, I’ve lived a life of bridging gaps and making constant changes to my comfort zone. I’ve honed my reflections and expertise in the hopes that others can use it to bring positive change to communities, without having to have the same experiences.
To drive these changes, I refocus audiences on what new possibilities come with what’s different, rather than what appears hard to let go. This approach removes popular biases that hold organizations back and brings new solutions to navigating modern issues.
