Swati Kakodkar

Founder & Storyteller

B.Commerce, PGDBM (Marketing)

Diploma in Storytelling

Swati is the brain behind “Story ki Bory®”, a structured story time program conducted in an informal, spontaneous and interactive manner. Primarily designed to inspire children to cultivate and strengthen their liking for stories and books, spark imagination, improve language skills, and build confidence. 

Swati believes in destiny, and at the same time strongly believes that it’s up to each person to make it a reality - like when she stumbled upon storytelling in the US libraries where she participated in the parent-child sessions with her son. 

She herself was so awed by the story time program that she decided to try her hand at it, one Christmas vacation. 

That was in 2013! 

Motivated by the response from parents, Story Ki Bory
® developed into a year-long program richly packed with Storytelling, Book Reading, and enriching  activities like Role play and Drama, among many other creative exercises.

Story ki Bory
®, literally meaning a sackful of stories offers an environment that easily allows children to shed their inhibitions and provides the platform where they can showcase their talent.

When not dreaming about her story telling ventures, Swati likes to indulge in reading, writing, travelling, watching movies, listening to music, and spending time with family and friends over good food. 

 "I believe that oral and written communication are my forte, and I can very naturally connect with people, especially children and the elderly."

A management professional, she has worked in the areas of Brand Building and Corporate Communication.

A certified storyteller, she also holds a Diploma in Storytelling from Kathalaya Academy of Storytelling, affiliated to the University of Sweden and Scottish Storytelling Centre, Edinburgh, UK; University of Skovde, Sweden.

She likes to define herself as enthusiastic, optimistic, empathetic, organized, and a dreamer, driven by two mottos:

“Be the change you want to see in the world."

“Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life!”
