Lili Khanbashi
Director Marketing Communication at Hamdan International Photography Award


Lili Khanbashi has always been a storyteller at heart, so it’s no wonder she has spent the last 27 years delivering brand stories across the globe. Whether through the power of the written word, the excitement of live communication or the beauty of imagery; Lili’s work transcends boundaries and connects people. Now as a director, writer, lecturer and coach, her passion finds her sharing her knowledge with teams, the industry and the next generation of storytellers; but she is never happier than when she spends her time supporting charitable causes.

Lili is also co-host of the creative industry podcast The Load In, and writes a monthly coaching column called Diving for Pearls for Victor Magazine.
