About Rashmi Watel
Migrating from India, Rashmi has set up home and business in Perth, Western Australia.
Despite being qualified as an Electronics and Telecommunications engineer and having an MBA, she found it difficult to achieve a sense of acceptance in a new cultural environment that is not user friendly to non-native English-speaking people.
Rashmi uses this personal experience as the passionate motivation to help empower women and children from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds to achieve happiness, self-belief and confidence at work and in the community. Her presentation inspires and motivates attendees to strive for and achieve a sense of well being in their newly adopted circumstances.
She also helps non-native English speakers to hone the English language and to have confidence to communicate in public such that they can participate in the normal day to day economic life in Australia.
Her notable achievements include being a TEDx Speaker and setting up a Company to support non-native English Speakers. As a strong advocate on the importance of mental health, she creates awareness about mental health issues through her company’s social initiative.
