WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT
LISTENING TO WOMEN &
TELLING THEIR STORIES
IMPACTFUL STORYTELLING FOR
UNLEASH EXECUTIVE TALENT
This is how it all started - with Irene observing the Remarkable Women of Vietnam and being inspired to tell their stories to the world!
Ba Trieu's 21st Century Daughters. Stories of Remarkable Vietnamese Women celebrates the diversity and achievements of 20 Women Leaders in Vietnam.
Their remarkable stories inspire us to imagine what is possible!
If this is what women [in Vietnam] can do without any specific support mechanism and despite ongoing gender inequality, imagine what could be possible with serious encouragement and equal opportunities?
The Women's Storytelling Salon is a live event series founded by Irene Ohler and Nandini Ooman in 2014 in Hanoi and now running in Hanoi, Saigon and in Washington D.C. by Nandini.
At the Salons in Vietnam we showcase and celebrate women's diverse paths and spark connections and inspiration through Storytelling.
Our Salon Community has been growing and growing, in numbers as well as in diversity in professional backgrounds, nationalities and generations, making it a unique place for Connection, Conversations, Celebration of women’s achievement, and Inspiration.
Since 2014 we’ve had 26 Salons in Hanoi and in Ho Chi Minh City, each with 2 inspiring storytellers from different fields sharing their different perspectives on a theme, and their stories of triumphs and trials on their path.
In the words of our last storyteller in Hanoi, Ms. Nguyễn Ngọc Mỹ, CEO Alphanam Group:
"And a gem it was. It was so nice to connect with new and familiar faces, to receive positivity from absolutely everyone in the room.
Thank you Irene for creating a space for us to learn and connect with each other. "
