What people said about Rohit Talwar
- "He set out a very good argument for the issues that the client needed to face over the next 10 years. It was well structured, thought provoking and provided all the stimulus required for our subsequent workshop process. A mixed audience of Board Directors and future Global Talent received the presentation very well. He ticked all the boxes for us!"
