Hi, I'm Kamna Narain

[calm-na nuh-rain]

When I reflect on the last 25 years of my career I realize that there is no resume template that can capture the texture of the transitions I’ve made, the turns I’ve taken and the successes I’ve enjoyed.

This is why I believe that nobody or no business should be confined by the façade of what is deemed to be right because everyone else is doing it. We should all feel energized and empowered to color outside the lines, that too with bright and bold hues.

After experiencing a major health transition, CK Consulting was born out of necessity in October 2013. But every fiber of the consultancy is made with a special blend of creativity, strategy and love.

Whether you’re a company or an individual that is ready to think differently and take a fresh approach to your perspective, I hope I can partner with you on this journey.

With gratitude,

Kamna Narain

As a business communications consultant, I offer thought partnership to organizations so they can stand out in the sea of business buzzwords and repeated stories.

Over the last 20 years, I have worked with companies such as Blue Shield of California, Chevron Corporation, McKesson Corporation, Patelco Credit Union and various start-up companies. I held communications management roles with McKesson Corporation and Lumetra, a boutique, non-profit agency, where I achieved 100% staff retention in the first 18 months of management.

My leadership experience also spans being president of an all-women’s honor society at UC Davis to over 20 years on the board of San Francisco International Association of Business Communicators (SFIABC), including a term as chapter president. As president, I managed a team of over 20 volunteers and retained more than 75% of the board for the following year.

So, whatever your needs and goals are, I’d love to help you achieve them using creative, out-of-the-box thinking.

As a life coach, I support people to live the life they want to lead and transform career and personal challenges into stepping stones for a better future.

I have married my skills as a coach and experience as a communications professional and organizational leader to coach individuals in these two areas. I bring the combination of empathy and experience to the table along with a well of practical knowledge about self-care, navigating office politics, leadership and work styles, and other common challenges.

The catalyst for my coaching practice - which launched in 2009 - was my first experience as a people manager. I quickly found that I felt most effective, passionate and fulfilled when I coached my team to tap into their own potential and achieve their goals. I knew firsthand how powerful a partnership with a good coach could be– since I worked with one to find my own groove as a people manager.

As a person with a visual disability and decades of dealing with chronic health conditions, I chose to turn my circumstances inside out, assess my strengths and how they could translate to value for clients.

I hope to empower clients to break the rules, color outside the lines, live life and shape their careers on their own terms. I did, and I can help you do the same.
