A note from Cyrus for Meeting Planners:

Cyrus Mavalwala Keynote Speaker

“I, Cyrus Mavalwala, pledge to make it as easy as possible for you to excel at your job and mitigate any risk of hiring me as a speaker or trainer. I will work to ensure that the process is strategic yet simple, stress-free and that the end result is that you look like a hero because the audience found real value in the session.”

If this resonates with you, we should probably talk. And by talk I mean I’d be happy to answer your questions, and will likely have just as many questions for you. Because I customize every presentation to meet your audience’s needs, the process starts with a deep understanding of your audience, the learning objectives and the mission, purpose and theme of your event. I ensure that the messages and stories delivered will resonate with your audience because I mesh their needs with the fresh perspective and innovation from the world I live in.

Once engaged, I’ll provide you with all the marketing materials you need including high resolution headshots, the session background and a biography and I’ll also co-promote your event through my social channels. Once on stage, my presentations integrate the same high quality visuals and video that Advantis produces for other CEOs, so regardless of your audience’s learning style, the messages will be reinforced for visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners.
