Chanti, from South Africa, a recent citizen of the United States shares her inspirational keynote 'I SEE YOU'. Chanti shares that her dramatic circumstances, a brush with death and blindness for three years, led her to live her passion and love for helping people express their stories and messages and be captivating! You "speak" before you open your mouth to say a word. You most likely are not aware of how you come across and how others SEE you. The way you enter a room, walk, dress and gesture, speak louder than your words. The words you choose and how you speak adds to the picture. Learn how you can present the best version of yourself and be captivating.

The native greeting in South Africa for 'I SEE YOU' is “SAWABONA” and it literally means “I SEE YOU” As to say, “I respect and acknowledge you for who you are”. Chanti will share how you can present the best version of yourself in 'I SEE YOU'.
