Krish Dhanam - Demo Reel

Krish Dhanam - Demo Reel

In many ways, Krish Dhanam is the epitome of the American Dream. A native of India, he arrived in the United States with nine dollars in his pocket and a vision of promise in his heart.

In a practical and informative way, Krish showcases how the American Dream is still alive and well. He tackles the issues of faith, freedom, discipline, dignity, pride, possibility, work ethic and relationships with word pictures that will resonate with audiences long after the speech. The advice Krish offers will stir you to the foundation of your belief in this great and awesome land. He reverently pays homage to “the land of the free and the home of the brave” as only a grateful immigrant can do. 

Krish Dhanam was born in the coastal town of Vizag, in Andhra Pradesh, India. In 1984 he finished his MBA at the Institute of Management Technology and migrated to the United States in 1986.

The road Krish Dhanam took to becoming one of the most dynamic speakers in America began in southeast India with the dream of moving to America. He arrived in New York City in 1986 with nine dollars in his pocket and a burning desire to achieve the levels of success he’d seen in the American-made movies he viewed as a child.

As a proud card-carrying member of the sales force of America Krish soon started his corporate climb. Through training, teaching and facilitating seminars all over the world, Krish launched his professional speaking career. As one of only two executive coaches personally trained by Zig Ziglar, Krish has successfully delivered his message of hope, humor and balance on six continents and throughout the continental United States. His client list is the who’s who of global enterprise and he has received accolades from some of the most distinguished organizations including, The United States Army, Christian Dior, Steelcase Industries, Apollo Hospitals, The Environmental Protection Agency, Weyerhauser and the Florida Department of Revenue.

He is the author of The American Dream from an Indian Heart, From Abstracts to Absolutes and contributing author to the book Top Performance written by Zig Ziglar. His latest book Hard Headed Soft Hearted co-authored with Rick Belluzzo (former President of Microsoft) is being used as culture-transformation curriculum globally. Krish also acts as the Global Corporate Adjunct for Ravi Zacharias Ministries and sits on the board of The Skypass Foundation. As a Managing Partner in SkyLife Success, he is constantly developing curriculum for global deployment. He is also actively involved in his church and is the President of Mala Ministeries.
