A recurring name amongst India’s leading experiential planners, Sonam graduated from Hansraj College Delhi University and went on to earn Masters in Mass Communication. This year started on a great note for Sonam as she  has been named as India’s Best Anchor Female 2019 by Business World. We got the opportunity to catch up with her  backstage during one of her recent events in Mumbai. 

Talking about her preparations before stage, she says ”As an anchor one needs to be well informed and well read. I read extensively and that has helped me a lot. On stage there are no retakes, therefore to be a confident emcee is to be equipped with general knowledge and the ability to take on a curveball and handle crisis”  She adds , “ It’s important to work constantly. Honing the craft is not a single day process. We must feed our minds with good online and offline content and as I always say READ; the more the better” 


Here’s a candid rapidfire with her. Read on
