Speaking

Shivya nath tedx, motivational travel speaker, shivya nath

In 2013, I gave up my home, sold most of my belongings and embraced a nomadic life. I speak about my unique life and travel philosophy at corporate events, travel meetups, conferences and workshops, on topics ranging from what it’s like to travel solo, to responsible and vegan travel, to making a living from a passion like travel blogging. My aim is to inspire and entertain with stories from the road, and encourage the audience to think differently.
