krish dhanam


Krish Dhanam was born and educated in India. Equipped with an MBA and $ 9.00 in his pocket, he migrated to the U.S. in 1986 with his bride, Anila. Winning a sales contest in 1990 earned him a ticket to a seminar conducted by the legendary motivator, Zig Ziglar.  This chance encounter would be the catalyst that shaped the next two decades as Krish joined the Ziglar Corporation in 1991 as a telemarketer and eventually became their Vice President of Global Operations.

Through training, teaching and facilitating seminars all over the world, Krish launched his professional speaking career. As one of only two executive coaches personally trained by Zig Ziglar, Krish has successfully delivered his message of hope, humor and balance in over fifty countries and throughout the continental United States. As a curriculum designer, he has authored programs on staff development, sales, leadership, personal development 

and communication. His client list is the who’s who of global enterprise and he has received accolades from some of the most distinguished organizations including The United States Army, Christian Dior, Marriott Hotels, Cadbury Schweppes, EDS, Texas Instruments, Toshiba, Pepsico, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Energizer Batteries.

Today, he is the CEO of Skylife Success and Global Ambassador for the Ziglar Group of Companies. He is the author of The American Dream from an Indian Heart, From Abstracts to Absolutes, Missives, Mottos and Maxims, Twilight, co-author of Hardheaded & Softhearted, and a contributing author to the book Top Performance written by Zig Ziglar. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the United States India Chamber of Commerce (USICOC) and the Skypass Foundation (nonprofit arm of the Skypass Group).

The Dhanams make their home in Flower Mound, Texas.
