Bharat Avalani
Storyteller & Memory Collector
Bharat Avalani is an accomplished FMCG marketer, facilitator and communicator who works with thought- leaders across the globe. Throughout his career, Bharat has been a habitual storyteller who captivates his audiences with his wealth of experience.
He believes that Business Storytelling is the number one leadership and communication skill of the next decade. He is committed to helping restore humanity to the workplace, using story-work as its method.
It took a long time for him to learn how to do this effectively and he has learned lots along the way. There is no better feeling than seeing a leader talk in an authentic and engaging way and to watch their audience ‘lean forward’ and be engaged. It’s what gets him out of bed in the morning.
His friends call him a memory collector and a storyteller. He seeks experiences. Every journey is a story for him. Like others he takes photographs; but he believes his are different. They tell a story that is emotive and engaging.

Based in Kuala Lumpur, he is the Founder and CEO of Connecting the Dots Consultancy and Global Partner of Anecdote which is recognized as the largest and most experienced business storytelling enterprise in the world.
Bharat is currently the Secretary General of the Asian Federation of Advertising Associations (AFAA) and serves on the Global Board of the New York based International Advertising Association (IAA) as the Global VP for Continuous Professional Development.
