Our History

The dna of our business is genuinely about sharing knowledge with the world, from thought leaders and experts who are not able achievers in their field. Raga D'silva quit her highly successfu l corporate career in New Zealand in 2007, to set up a dream business of connecting knowledge, insights, motivation from exceptional ta lent with the corporate world, globally.


Her first big break came within 24 hours of setting up her business, and she ventured into the world of knowledge, using her extensive advertising and marking experience globally, consul tative yet hands-on approach and networks in the media and corporate in dustry in India, to create partnerships that brought in millions of dol lars for the client, built strong presence for talent such as Edward de Bono, Stephen Covey, Deepak Chopra, and created a win-win for media part ners such as The Times of India, DNA, CNBC TV18, and the corporate s ector partnering on such platforms.


Clients in New Zealand started outsourcing creative work to India through her company. Soon, she needed a business pa rtner and associate to support her in running this expanding business. Nicola Fenton, with her excellent business background, wor king for the New Zealand Parliament at that time managing their hosp itality facilities, with a love for India, joined her. Soon, they expanded i nto India, the Middle East and now London. Along the way, they also suppo rted any speakers, performers, trainers as well as companies with their events – conferences, summits, conclaves, knowledge clubs, t hought leadership programmes into India, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, UK, Europe, USA.


The dream continues. The energy is high. The experi ence and knowledge has extended into many other areas. Today , their services have extended into many countries, creating unique model of building personal brands, marketing support for such talent and connecting the corporate world with them.


Raga continues to be sort after for her knowledge o f both the East and West markets, and has represented "India as a brand " at many events, conferences and continues to influence the corporat e world. Nicola manages all the international operations for the co mpany and continues to provide strategic direction.


The company has now scaled up, and continues to pro vide the best customer service for his corporate clients and tale nt, around the world.

About Speaking Minds

When Speaking Minds was founded in 2007 in New Zealand, little did we envisage that this would grow into an international brand with offices in India and London in less than a decade. We set up the business to share what we had learnt, from the privileges we have had in our jobs – of access to knowledge. Bringing India to the rest of the world was our driving force.
