Speaker Testimonial "My colleague and I were delighted to be invited to attend a seminar hosted by Rohit Talwar at the QEII Conference Centre. The event proved to be an enlightening experience and gave a real insight into strategies that could push our business forward during these difficult times. Rohit's presentation was clear, informative and entertaining, giving a global perspective to the challenges faced by businesses going into the next decade. The presentation provoked a truly illuminating discussion among the delegates, facilitated by Rohit's insightful comments, everyone felt able to contribute to the conversation and this added greatly to the effectiveness of event. It was a shame we had to curtail the discussion but I think we would all still have been there for breakfast if we hadn't stopped when we did!!I would not hesitate to recommend Rohit's seminars to anyone who thinks and works on a strategic level, within a business or any other organisation."
