Natasha D’souza

Entrepreneur and Forbes Columnist. Journalist. Speaker. Firebrand. This former corporate warrior spent over 10 years working with the top brass in business, media, healthcare and government in three countries across three continents before pursuing her first love: telling stories that inspire change. Today, her work spans reporting for regional and international business media on startups, technology and the “new” economy; advising forward-thinking brands on marketing and growth strategy and championing gender inclusion and diversity in business. Natasha has interviewed some of the world’s foremost business and creative minds including the former CEO of Apple–John Sculley, international bestselling author–Malcolm Gladwell and impact investing pioneer–Jacqueline Novogratz; along with several government visionaries and leading entrepreneurs across the Middle East, India and Asia Pacific. Her passion for storytelling is driven from a desire to showcase the way powerful shifts in technology and culture, especially in emerging markets across the Asian continent, are creating opportunities to reimagine and reshape the way we do business. She is the only UAE-based expert selected to join the SheSource braintrust, a global initiative by the Women’s Media Center in Washington DC and the only UAE-based journalist accepted to the Wharton Seminar for Business Journalists in its 40 year history.
