Journalist. Speaker. Firebrand. This former corporate warrior spent over 10 years working with the top brass in business, media, healthcare and government in three countries across three continents before pursuing her first love: telling stories that inspire change.
Natasha D’Souza is a journalist, strategist and speaker exploring new models of creativity, leadership and resilience in a pandemic-ridden world. She is also a sought-after international conference chair and moderator and contributor to the Harvard Business Review.
A storyteller by passion, her work is driven by a desire to reveal powerful shifts in technology and society and how they create opportunities for institutions and individuals to reimagine and transform the way they stand-out and succeed.
Natasha ventured into journalism following a versatile corporate career working at leading institutions – including The Corporate Executive Board, the Harvard Medical School Dubai Center and Dubai Holding – in roles spanning business intelligence, strategy and investor relations. Based in Dubai, she reports for global business media including Forbes and The Karma Network and has interviewed some of the foremost business and creative minds of our time: from former CEO of Pepsi and Apple – John Sculley- to international best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell to one of the most powerful women in Indian business – Vani Kola; along with several government leaders, industry titans and visionary entrepreneurs worldwide.
In 2017, Natasha was the first UAE-based journalist selected to the Wharton Business School’s annual fellowship for business journalists. Through her compelling stories, both on and off-stage, Natasha is committed to combating stereotypes, breaking down barriers and cultivating more powerful and provocative female and minority voices in the mainstream global narrative on business and technology.
