The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who win battles we know nothing about. For someone so young and gentle, the strength of her personality can only be felt through her story and her remarkable achievements. Here is a timeline of achievements:

She and her father, Ajeet Bajaj (Padma Shri), were the first father-daughter team in India to climb Mt. Everest.

Is this Masterclass right for my team?
Audiences generally expect an older person to run a Masterclass session. However, when you have the kind of achievements that Deeya has notched up at such a young age, you naturally earn your seat at the high table.
For younger audiences, Deeya is a shining example of what can be achieved at a young age, with single minded pursuit and discipline. For older audiences too, her stories of not just her adventures but the lessons culled from it and the span of her concern and involvement in issues like women’s empowerment are an inspiration to how they could mold their own lives.
No wonder then, that Deeya is a much in demand speaker in our panel. She has worked with a wide variety of clients like Uber, ATOAI, Embassy Group, Oris Swiss Watches, Lodha Ventures, MCKS, Epsilon, NDTV, SKAL International, CEEW, Impulse Fashion, Confederation of Indian Industry and JK Tyres. She has also been a TEDx speaker.
If you are looking at inspiring your leaders on the topic of Women’s Empowerment or dreaming big to achieve your goals, there are few people who can bring the kind of insights that Deeya brings through her unique experiences. FocusU invites you to explore a Masterclass with her.
