Ashish is also a traveller and a motivational speaker. In his journey over the last three decades, he has had amazing experiences across varied cultures and geographies that have helped him discover inner resources to celebrate the 'journey' itself.

That was how the Avid Miner was born about six years ago, to engage in pathway conversations with fellow travellers.

At Ashish Vidyarthi & Associates - each bespoke curation by the National Award-winning Actor and TEDx speaker is designed using anecdotes, narrative techniques, role plays, and theatre-based tools that are meant to tickle the creative mind and ignite the unique excellence in each.


Ashish Vidyarthi
Founder & Avid Miner

Ashish Vidyarthi - the Avid Miner, helps to bring out the champion that lies within each one of us. Through Curated Workshops and Conversations which are led personally by him. Being an actor, a thought leader, motivational speaker, and an Ignite Conversationalist, he creates learning programmes keeping in mind how conversations flow with people within their organisation... so even though it may be a workshop on storytelling, communication, negotiation, executive presence, or others, he makes it topical by adding references of what they are dealing with in their real life. Therefore, these programmes are lived in experiences for the participants and they can find ways to apply it on themselves.
