Sharad Kharé

September 30th, 2014

There’s no doubt that a lot goes into developing what the TEDxVancouver experience will look like. Many teams come together and collaborate on the experience, but a crucial aspect of the day depends on selection of what we showcase. Sharad Kharé is one of our event curators and lends his expertise to help us present the best event experience possible.

What do you currently do for work?
I am a dialogue facilitator, producer of digital content, and I work in the areas of communication and legacy. I currently host and produce a television show called Imagination Dialogue. I have a company called Khare Communications where I produce digital content for companies and myself for mass media distribution. I work with CEO’s and entrepreneurs to effectively present their ideas and messaging to their stakeholders, media and targeted audiences. My interviews can be seen on my digital blog called Sharad’s LunchBox.

What are your passions, hobbies, and how do you spend your free time?
My passion in life is creating dialogue with the most interesting people in the world. My hobby is producing videos that engage and inspire through creativity. I spend my time with my wife and son, have a very active social life, and believe that balance is where happiness meets happiness. : )

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned in your career?
Never give up on an idea, never listen to people who doubt your work, and don’t take on more than you can handle.

What’s your morning ritual before work?
I have a guilty pleasure to give as many kisses to my son and wife as I can and then try to get some toast with peanut butter in before I head out to shoot content for the day and head out to meetings.

What book is on your nightstand right now?
Culture Jam by Kalle Lasn and Power and Love by Adam Kahane

What is something we wouldn’t expect about you?
I don’t like watching movies in theatres because I like to pause and eat and discuss the content.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
My son Soran is my greatest achievement to date, and going back to school at the age of 37 years old to get my masters degree in communications and completing it without having my bachelors degree while having my son born within that time.

What is your current state of mind?
I am driven, on a momentum that will change perspective and engage audiences.

Which is your favourite TED talk?

What’s your motto?
Life is not about finding yourself it is about creating yourself
