Sunjay Nath travels globally sharing insights on leadership and performance. He is best known for his trademark, ‘The 10-80-10 Principle’ which is a framework that helps individuals and teams improve performance. This methodology combines best practices with small wins to help people empower themselves.
Sunjay was a founding Vice President of an e-learning company based in Toronto that has gone on to become a multimillion-dollar company. Prior to that position he worked as an engineer for a distribution company in New York. He served as a camp director for several years with a camp that focuses on developing leadership skills in students. He has also held positions with H&R Block and Bank of Montreal.
He started an international speaking business when he was 19; he wasn’t even old enough to rent a car. This was particularly problematic when he would travel. As a speaker, Sunjay has travelled extensively and addressed in person well over 1,000,000 people around the world since 1995. In 2005, Sunjay became the youngest Canadian (and third youngest in the world) ever to earn his CSP (Certified Speaking Professional). The CSP is the highest internationally recognized designation that a speaker can aspire to achieve.
With his background, Sunjay offers a rare combination of both left and right brain activities to engage all audience members. Sunjay holds an undergraduate degree in Mathematical Engineering, a degree that after the first year of the program, 80% of the students failed out. He also holds a Masters in Business Administration. During his MBA, he took first prize in an international business case competition.
Always striving to achieve Sunjay has earned is Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, has run a full 26 mile (42km) marathon and has jumped out of a perfectly good plane (some call it skydiving). He has served as President of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers Toronto Chapter and President of his Engineering Discipline. He is a magician, a comedian, a professional actor, he can juggle and in university he was rated as one of the country’s top debaters.
Sunjay is the author of The 10-80-10 Principle, The ABCs of Student Leadership, and a contributing author for the book, Professionally Speaking.
When not on the road, Sunjay enjoys spending time with his wife and three high energy, extremely busy sons. As you can imagine his household is quiet and relaxed. This probably explains why Sunjay is currently learning to sing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” in rounds … by himself.
The 10-80-10 Principle® is a framework that allows you to increase your performance and results by focusing your energy and efforts on highest yielding activities. The Principle was created by Sunjay Nath and it help individuals and teams operate at a dynamic level.
Every person or group already exhibits behaviors that are Top 10 (percent) – those behaviors that lead to high performance and achievement. What people lack is the knowledge to consistently operate at that dynamic Top 10 level. The 10-80-10 Principle® rewards and grows Top 10 behaviors and eliminates Bottom 10 actions.
Engaging Hands on, Sunjay Nath works with the audience to identify their Top and Bottom 10 and then A.C.T. with the 10-80-10 Principle® to create greater performance levels in their lives, or within the organization. The 10-80-10 Principle® is sought after around the globe by businesses and organizations through Keynotes, Workshops, Coaching and on a Consulting basis.
This workshop builds part of the foundation to the 10-80-10 Principle®. If we acknowledge the way our personal bias forms our opinions and biases, we can easily be trapped by our own limiting beliefs.
The goal of this session is to help move people from Impossible to Possible. This is done by bringing to surface some of the ways our own assumptions lead to our personal biases. Once we are aware of this, we can learn to question the rules and boundaries, which are often self-imposed. By questioning the barriers and re-approaching from a different perception we can make what was once impossible, possible.
This is an experiential approach to improving Speaking Skills. The From the Platform workshop focuses on four main components of effective presentations; basics, rules, content and application with an experiential approach. Participants will be given exercises to practice and enhance their presentations skills throughout the sessions.
