At the age of 19, Nadia Murad and some members of her family were kidnapped from their village of Kocho in northern Iraq. Held as a sex slave by fighters of the Islamic Stated, she was beaten, tortured, and repeatedly raped. Her bid for freedom after three months found her a refugee in Duhok, northern Iraq, before she was taken to Stuttgart, Germany. Once in Germany, she received medical treatment before being reunited with other survivors. Of her family, six of her nine brothers and her mother were killed the day she and her two sisters were taken by ISIS.

Vocal in her determination to make the world aware of the atrocities committed by ISIS, Nadia has committed herself to lead a campaign aimed at promoting peace by means of de-radicalization.

Nadia deems herself a survivor, not a victim. Her aim is to lift the veil on the torture and abuse suffered by men, women, and children by extremists while highlighting the plight of marginalized ethnic and religious minority groups.

Nadia’s courage in speaking out and her efforts to put the world’s focus on the genocide taking place in her own country at the UNO, saw her nominated by Iraq for the Nobel Peace Prize, which she received in 2018. She is the recipient of the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought and the Council of Europe Vaclav Havel Award for Human Rights.

She is a coach to executives, entrepreneurs and emerging leaders, facilitates workshops and organizational trainings, and speaks at events around the world.She has been a student of the Eastern contemplative traditions for over a decade, primarily attending teachings with HH the 14th Dalai Lama, and has been trained in contemplative neuroscience and psychology at the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science in NY. Anahita received her BA in Marketing & Advertising at the London School of Communications and her MA in Social Anthropology at The School of Oriental and African Studies, London.Anahita is committed to a path of self-inquiry, combining analytic insight with experience-based practices. With an objective to refine methods that can unlock the upside of human potential, Anahita leverages her training in social anthropology and contemplative science.Her ongoing research has led her to develop a deep interest in topics that include the relationship between mind, perception and reality; the neuropsychology of happiness; comparative studies of the feminine; healing developmental trauma and the power of habit.Anahita’s coaching and leadership development style addresses issues on a causal level. It aims to disrupt habitual patterns of behavior by challenging perception and self-reinforcing systems of belief that lock us into cycles of dissatisfaction. Working closely with clients, Anahita makes it easy to dismantle obstacles in the way of happiness by applying critical inquiry into deeply held beliefs and ingrained habits, accompanied by rigorous mind training practices to foster gradual and substantial transformation. After all, how we see ourselves is how we will be.Echoing the words of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Anahita believes that happiness is our primary responsibility. We are "social animals", constantly in relationship within a complex, intricately interwoven and deeply interdependent web of life. Anahita believes that the cultivation of pro-social emotions and wholesome mental states will play a fundamental role in ensuring the continuation of life on the planet.Prior to Neural Beings, Anahita worked in media and journalism for European news agencies, producing macro-economic country reports for Forbes, the Washington Post and The Times. She lived and work in Croatia, Botswana, Indonesia and the UAE, interviewing senior political and business leaders, gaining insight into their mindsets and 7 years later, using those insights to launch Neural Beings.Anahita’s favorite mode of creative expression is dance. She is trained in Persian Sufi dance and other ethnic and contemporary styles, and performs on special occasions. She also practices martial arts and tries to not take herself too seriously.

At the age of 19, Nadia Murad and some members of her family were kidnapped from their village of Kocho in northern Iraq. Held as a sex slave by fighters of the Islamic Stated, she was beaten, tortured, and repeatedly raped. Her bid for freedom after three months found her a refugee in Duhok, northern Iraq, before she was taken to Stuttgart, Germany. Once in Germany, she received medical treatment before being reunited with other survivors. Of her family, six of her nine brothers and her mother were killed the day she and her two sisters were taken by ISIS.

Vocal in her determination to make the world aware of the atrocities committed by ISIS, Nadia has committed herself to lead a campaign aimed at promoting peace by means of de-radicalization.

Nadia deems herself a survivor, not a victim. Her aim is to lift the veil on the torture and abuse suffered by men, women, and children by extremists while highlighting the plight of marginalized ethnic and religious minority groups.

Nadia’s courage in speaking out and her efforts to put the world’s focus on the genocide taking place in her own country at the UNO, saw her nominated by Iraq for the Nobel Peace Prize, which she received in 2018. She is the recipient of the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought and the Council of Europe Vaclav Havel Award for Human Rights.

There was once a woman who kept an extraordinary family legacy alive and became an explorer in order to protect the planet and its beautiful oceans. She is now a leading voice in environmentalism.

There was once a woman who gave new life to human rights activism and dedicated herself to protecting indigenous peoples. Her work was recognized with a Nobel Peace Prize.

There was once a woman who dreamt of triumphing in Hollywood without giving up on her education. She earned her doctorate in neuroscience and has been nominated for four Emmy awards.

You have the chance to meet all three of these extraordinary women. How? Nothing could be simpler. Just tell us who you’re looking for, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Those three women are Alexandra Cousteau, Rigoberta Menchu-Tum and Mayim Bialik. Each is available to speak about their passions, about their paths to success, and about the lessons that their stories have for you and your audience. Are you ready to be inspired by their messages?

If none of them sound quite right for the event you’re putting together, never fear. The Aurum Speakers Bureau portfolio is broad, and includes other heroines like Rosario Marín, the first Mexican treasurer of the United States government; Brené Brown, best-selling author and expert on vulnerability, courage, and empathy; and Justine Cassell, an expert in artificial intelligence.

They are all unique and captivating presenters, who seek not to win admiration but to involve us all in their stories to awaken our curiosity. They motivate and inspire us and will awaken your enthusiasm. They have seen what the world needs and have fought to achieve it. We can all learn from their experiences, from their talent, and from how they overcame the challenges they faced.

You need an inspiring presence and a powerful voice, and we’re ready to help. It’s time to seize the opportunity to surprise, inspire and excite your audience—you’ve found what you’re looking for.
