Shivani's parents moved her family to Australia from India when she was 11. She's the first woman in her lineage to have the opportunity to work which she's so grateful for. And hence she wanted to create a business to help other people be grateful and passionate about their work.
She graduated as an electrical engineer and then did an MBA from the Australian Graduate School of Management. She worked in corporate roles and got to work with amazing people. Despite earning great money, She felt unfulfilled. Shivani knew she had to feed her bills and her soul. In 2002, she started her own business Passionate People Institute which is an education business through speaking, mentoring and authoring.

She lives by some simple rules. Be authentic. Love fiercely. People that hurt you are your teachers – forgive and let go. Live passionately. Live as it was your last.
She has written several books to try and share her learnings with you. And she has a BLOG.
One of her passions is to have girls in 3rdworld countries being educated so they are financially empowered and do not have to live a life of abuse and poverty.
She's a mum to a beautiful 8-year-old boy, Om and an amazing 10 year old girl, Shanti and she's married to an awesome guy Scott. Only meaningful work takes her away from her loved ones.
