Dr. Swati Lodha

Hello Friends,

Welcome to my world – A world of small town dreamer, doer and a believer.

My journey is an interesting and enriching mix, starting from tent classrooms in the schools to Harvard classrooms. I have trained more than 10,000 young minds through my organization SWASH PD Pvt Ltd in 17 years. I have also empowered youth to learn ABC – Attitude, Behaviour and Communication – to live a life full of happiness and gratitude.

Corporate Trainings and speaking assignments based on my books “Come on! Get, Set Go” and “Why Women are what they are”, have created communities of learners who really believe in enriching and updating themselves.

Preparation of my new book on Parenting has helped me in reaching out to Parents across the world with my concept of “MOON PARENTING” which is for 21st century parents. My Parenting workshops help all the parents like me to learn and unlearn, to empathize and empower each other.

The Lecture series on Leadership and Motivation conducted with my Actor – Poet husband Shailesh (AKA Tarak Mehta of famous SAB TV show) leave people with loads of laughter and lots of learnings.

I welcome you all to this world of Inspiration…
