ABOUT ME

JOURNALISM
I am a technology, hobby and education columnist with CBC Radio's 20 plus radio stations across the country, and a guest host on CBC's Ontario weekend show.

In my former role, I was Vice President of Marketing at the start-up Eloqua, now a part of Oracle, and hold an Engineering degree from Queen’s University. 

SPEAKING
A frequent emcee and moderator, I've been invited for repeat speaking appearances at Elevate, Collision, the Mars Discovery District, Invest Ottawa and #MovetheDial.
VOLUNTEERING

My experience as a refugee to Canada and the role of science in getting me to where I am, drive the volunteer work I do, as co‐founder of Tamil Women Rising and board member of Jumpstart Refugee Talent and Scientists in School.

 

TESTIMONIALS

 

Jodi Kovitz, CEO, #movethedial

Manjula brings incredibly unique energy to any stage she graces. She is vibrant, inspiring and authentic, and truly was a delight to work with on the several occasions she spoke at our #movethedial events. I would endorse her as a speaker any (and every) day.

HOBBIES FOR THESE STRANGE TIMES

Robot

A ROBOT POET, A MACHINE WRITER?

Woeful outcomes from the pandemic and rising anti-immigration rhetoric in the U.S. is driving tech talent to look north of the border, for a place to build the next big disrupter. For CBC, I looked at what that means for innovation in Canada.

For my weekly chat with CBC Toronto on hobbies to help us get through these strange times, I looked at bullet journaling and spoke to one of its biggest stars, Amanda Rach Lee from the city.

In an eye-opening op-ed for the Guardian in the U.K, a robot takes on one of our greatest fears about artificial intelligence. It writes that it has no desire to wipe out humans. In my column for CBC radio stations across Canada, I look at the bold essay, the robot author and the technology behind it.
