Presented by the Women Business Leaders Council

Join us on Wednesday, November 16 to hear from Sejal’s eye-opening journey that will inspire you to be grateful, accept vulnerability, and surround yourself with people you trust implicitly. You will leave feeling empowered with the ability to overcome any adversity.

Sejal’s Journey:
Sejal Lakhani-Bhatt began her career working for major global banking institutions, but she left the corporate world behind in 2012 to join her husband in growing his managed IT startup, TechWerxe. They built a thriving business together, but when her husband passed away suddenly from a heart attack in 2019, Sejal’s world spun out of control. For the first time in her life, Sejal was left in charge of everything – personally and professionally.

While trying to help her children cope with their grief and keep her business moving forward, Sejal discovered her husband had a problem that resulted in significant financial and emotional hardships for her family and their business. Hardships she has yet to share with her most intimate family.

In the months after her husband’s death, Sejal realized four truths that changed how she approaches life and can help others make small, but critical changes.

Sejal’s one-of-a-kind perspective on building businesses from the ground up, connecting with audiences to ignite action and sharing her vulnerable leadership to inspire countless others to transform their lives is what makes her thrive, even in the most challenging of times.

As a mom of two young boys who lost her husband suddenly a few years ago, Sejal has found incredible purpose in speaking to others on how to take charge of their lives through acceptance, gratitude and relentless trust in building connections and communities that are rooted in service and authenticity.

Sejal is also a powerhouse when it comes to architecting success. She joined her husband’s IT company in 2012 and within two years grew it into one of the most respected IT companies for small-midsize businesses (SMBs) in the tri-state area. Her perseverance and innovation earned her a Gold Stevie Award, NJBIZ DigiTech Innovator Award, and recognition as an ROI Power List 2021 Influencer and NJBIZ Best 50 Women in Business. In 2021, Sejal launched a second company called CloudWerxe to offer small to mid-sized MSPs a top-of-the-line, secure cloud environment. In addition to her technology career, Sejal is a partner with Norkez Lakhani and co-owner of Rotondos, a liquor store and deli in Clark, NJ.

Prior to her entrepreneurial career, Sejal spent 12 years traveling the country working for leading financial firms and is currently on the Board of EO and Connect 4 Business Exchange. Sejal is also part of several Mastermind groups, is an avid supporter of St. Jude’s and works with organizations that support victims of Human Trafficking.

Today, Sejal finds her calling on the stage helping people discover how to become entrepreneurs of their own lives by teaching them how to show up for themselves, for others, for their family and for everything that they do.
