ABOUT

Bharati Jagdish

Many think of communication as glossy corporate images and the perfect ‘spin’. However, I believe the most powerful communication stems from being real. This drives me to help executives dig deep to uncover their authentic voices and communicate empathetically while credibly representing their organisations.

Crafting purposeful narratives that spark epiphanies, build trust and propel action has been my mission for as long as I can remember.

Growing up in an era defined by television as the go-to babysitter, I saw how well-produced media content could engage and entertain. It brought me joy and helped me make sense of the world. Wanting to make a similar impact on others, I dedicated almost 20 years of my career to connecting with mass audiences as a multi-platform journalist in Singapore, winning numerous awards before moving on to helping others connect with their stakeholders.

My journalistic career began at regional broadcaster, Radio Singapore International with a focus on politics, business and social issues. Later, as a morning drive time anchor at Mediacorp’s 938LIVE (now known as CNA938), I took listenership to new peaks. I also made a mark in television as host of Channel 5’s current affairs programme, Singapore Talking before transitioning to online journalism at regional news outlet, Channel NewsAsia.com. My online features consistently made it to the list of most read articles and my 5-star rated podcasts frequently ignited meaningful public discourse. Recently, I returned to radio for a stint as an anchor at business and personal finance station, MONEY FM 89.3.

Having conducted incisive interviews with prominent leaders as well as ordinary people with extraordinary stories, and produced content for various audiences, I know what works and am able to implement impactful communication strategies for any context. My journalistic acumen also allows me to rapidly crystallise key messages and present them in ways that resonate with my clients' stakeholders.

Since entering the corporate communications field, I've directed communication in diverse industries including funeral services and executive recruitment on a regional scale. In each instance, I've helped leadership teams develop potent blueprints and deliver strategic messages with confidence, conviction and clarity to meaningfully connect with their audiences.

Today, as an independent strategist, consultant and coach, I work with executives at various levels to shape and express compelling narratives that drive organisational purpose, goals and results.

I don’t believe in templates. My toolkits are carefully curated and highly personalised. I see myself as a guide taking you on a journey. I meet you where you are with the aim of arriving at our destination together, having progressed beyond the tangible. I apply this philosophy to shaping your interactions with your stakeholders as well, ensuring that through effective communication, you become an invaluable guide who helps them navigate the world. 

Effectual communication is transformative. It imbues people with a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Facilitating such experiences for my clients fuels my own sense of accomplishment.

In addition to consulting, training and coaching, I'm available for engagement as a host and moderator for conferences and podcasts.
