An excellent orator, Goidani is also a speaker at TEDx, a globally renowned platform for propagating “ideas worth spreading”. He has the magical ability of identifying talent and nurturing it.
“Like in a machine each part is important and plays its role, we are a very important part of this world and so is every other person” – this dialogue from one of his favorite movies is close to him and he totally believes in it.

“Keep Moving” was Giodani’s first book and a publishing best seller with 8000 print copies. It covers subjects and ideas from real-life situations to help people grow and live a meaningful life. In 2012, along with like-minded authors, he wrote another book, “Win Before You Begin”. In 2013, Goidani released “Keep Moving 2”, the sequel to his first book. Thereafter, in December 2013, he launched a collection of 12 books.
Goidani believes that the youth of India have the potential to take the country to its deserved position on the global level. To empower students towards this purpose, he started the “Keep Moving Movement”, a social initiative that is focussed on imparting gratis life transforming training to teachers and students in English, Hindi, Marathi and Gujarati. This initiative is steered by a committed squad of 200+ Life Schoolers, who are trained and experienced professionals under the guidance of Goidani.

In 2015, the workshop went digital, and WOW Parenting was available online with a repository of parenting resources, including videos, articles, blogs and Q&As. WOW Parenting guides parents in becoming “wow parents” while having loads of fun in the process.
Born in a village in Rajasthan and brought up in Kolkata, Narendra Goidani is a dreamer and a people person. As an unflinching optimist, he is continuously striving towards building a better world for the generations to come, where everyone will have beautiful stories to narrate.
