Krish Dhanam Biography

Krish Dhanam was born in Vizag in Andhra Pradesh and finished his formal education with an MBA at the Institute of Management Technology in Ghaziabad. Equipped with that learning he migrated to the US in 1986 with his bride Anila. Winning a sales contest in 1990 earned him a ticket to a seminar conducted by the legendary motivator Zig Ziglar. This chance encounter would be the catalyst that shaped the next two decades as Krish joined the Ziglar Corporation in 1991 as a telemarketer and eventually became their Vice President of Global Operations.

Through training, teaching and facilitating seminars all over the world, Krish launched his professional speaking career. Krish has successfully delivered his message of hope, humor and balance in over fifty countries 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, American Airlines, Etihad Airways, Christian Dior, Marriott Hotels, Cadbury Schweppes, Hitachi Consulting, Ryan, EDS, Texas Instruments, Toshiba, Pepsico, Enterprise Rent a Car and MDRT & Energizer Batteries.

Today he is the Global Corporate Adjunct with RZIM, Managing Partner and CEO with Skylife Success, co-founder of Krish Dhanam Training and President of Mala Ministries. He is the author of The American Dream from an Indian Heart and From Abstracts to Absolutes and contributing author to the book Top Performance written by Zig Ziglar. His latest book Hard Headed and Soft Hearted was co-authored with Rick Belluzzo former President of Microsoft.

The Dhanam's make their home in Flower Mound, Texas and are the proud parents of Nicolas who is a mechanical engineering graduate from the University of Tulsa.

The Dependability Factor

Are you going through life just being counted or are you growing through life being counted on? Learning to live your day by the clock and your life with a vision is sometimes easier said than done. But when you understand the tri-dimensional nature of man's composition you will begin to see that there is a method and madness to excellence. Here the approach is more holistic in terms of giving people an opportunity to look at their effort and output in the totality of the human experience. Relying on debunking some traditional myths, business speaker Krish Dhanam will draw an anthropological thread for success and significance.

The American Dream Has No Snooze Button

This is one of the most requested topics in a time when we are undergoing unprecedented change. Here the design, development, and delivery of the keynote is tailored to meet the specific requirements of the client. Business speaker Krish Dhanam will work with your theme to structure the content of his communication to fit the specific requirements of your group. The basic premise is to remind people that survival is assured and stability is available if you just show up. But by doing what is required and helping one or two other people along the way the quantitative result is unimaginable.

If You Cannot Understand, Stand Under

The premise and foundation of this keynote is take people back to the attributes of foundational thinking. By understanding that there is a way we define and express ourselves and by clinging to the absolutes we know there is a freedom to achieve. In this session business speaker Krish Dhanam will engage the audience with his trademark humor and guide them through a narrative of distinctive motifs that will allow each participant to begin a voyage of self-discovery that allows them to be more, do more, and have more.

Selling Is Not Telling

Having learned the fundamentals of selling from the legendary Zig Ziglar, Krish has authored curriculum in all facets of personal and professional development. To this end his speech, Selling Is Not Telling, pinpoints the mistakes that most sales professionals make when canvassing their product. The eagerness to be feature-driven and not benefit-oriented makes them talk about their product's application versus the solutions that the same product will provide the customer. Here the participants will be engaged in many simulations where they are shown the way to display value once rather than explain price over and over again.
