My Story

Welcome to my Speaker Page, where you can secure me for impactful talks at your event. My name is Deepa Mani—technologist, artistic director, and entrepreneur. Guided by Mark Twain's wisdom,

"Find a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life," I transitioned from a successful IT career to follow my passion for dance.
Dance has always been my passion, and after 25 years as a professional Indian classical and contemporary dancer, I established "Chandralaya", leaving behind my successful IT career. Chandralaya is now a thriving dance school in Melbourne for the past 6 years. Committed to holistic wellness, I ventured into the beauty industry in 2023, founding "POC (proud of colour)Beauty." This startup is dedicated to providing skincare and cosmetics for people of color, empowering us to embrace our unique beauty. 
Now, balancing businesses and motherhood, I'm on a mission to inspire and empower women to leap into their entrepreneurial journey. Join me on this journey where technology, arts, and entrepreneurship converge to inspire and bring about change.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect and have a chat.
