Named by Thinkers50 as the “Oprah of Management Thinkers”, she is the author of two books: Get Big Things Done: The Power of Connectional Intelligence and Digital Body Language: How to Build Trust and Connection, No Matter the Distance.

Dhawan frequently appears in Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, and The Wall Street Journal. Dhawan speaks on global stages ranging from the World Economic Forum at Davos to TEDx and for companies such as Coca-Cola, FedEx, Goldman Sachs, Walmart, SAP, and Cisco. She has degrees from Harvard University, MIT Sloan, and The Wharton School.

Henry Schein is also engaged with Women in DSO at the leadership level.
