What people said about Rohit Talwar
Rohit's delivery and content was fantastic; really interesting and engaging throughout. We were really pleased with the extent at which Rohit had researched our company and tailored ideas which were relevant to the audience. Rohit was extremely enthusiastic about the topic and closely followed the brief to match what we were looking for.
Your presentation on 'Future strategic trends and their implications for the defence and security market' was fascinating. It gave me a number of ideas and leads to follow, which have in turn influenced the strategy we have adopted for our small but technically leading edge company.
The insight Rohit Talwar brings to examination of future trends is always expressed in an entertaining, compelling, coherent and challenging manner. This is a 'must' for all who are trying to understand an increasingly turbulent business environment and build this into their strategic plans. His ability to create an engaging debate with his audience always makes his sessions a thought provoking occasion.
Dear Rohit, Id like to express our sincere thanks and most heartfelt appreciation for your excellent presentation at the Middle East Duty Free Conference last week in Abu Dhabi. The delegate feedback we have received on you is also nothing short of outstanding. We greatly appreciated your commitment to the conference theme and the way you responded to the brief - it was spot on. Not only was your presentation informative and provided real learning experience, you also delivered it in a truly entertaining manner keeping delegates on the edge of their seats throughout. We wish you all the best and hope to work with you again in the future.
Rohit is recognised as a global leader in his field, but is also an engaging and inclusive speaker/facilitator, always making sure that non-expert groups feel relaxed and able to participate. I would recommend him highly for future events of this nature
Rohit's presentation was very much tailored to the audience and provided an eye opening vision of what the future may hold and its impacts to all businesses. His delivery was excellent, providing an engaging, challenging and humor filled talk. As a keynote speaker, Rohit definitely delivered
I have had the valuable opportunity to see several presentations from Rohit Talwar and he continues to make complex, and very important issues real. His studies and presentations on the incredible growth story of the Middle East, thought provoking yet real data on future trends and the need to take responsibility for the future through the environment have provided me a different perspective on how I look into the future. Rohit key note addresses extend beyond his sessions and he has made time to provide further guidance to myself and my team in areas we should explore in the subject area. I also recently attended the PATA CEO Challenge on Climate Change where Rohit presented and also facilitated this tourism industry wide discussion with a goal to discuss and develop how the Travel and Tourism industry will confront and unify in their commitment to climate change. I congratulate Rohit on leading and focusing the views of the presenters and delegates.
Rohit Talwar was a highlight at the 1st European Futurists Conference Lucerne, as a speaker and as a facilitator. In fact, for the state secretary for research and education of Switzerland - a sponsor of our conference - Rohit was simply the best.
Rohit dinner speech had the audience spellbound - I know because the room was absolutely silent! I even overhead a delegate on his mobile, relaying some of his points back to his European office at the airport the next day
Regardless of whether you are one who runs towards the future; or is sliding towards it, kicking and screaming, desperately holding on to the past, Rohit Talwar's seminar will give you pause. His energy and humor, coupled with extensive knowledge of the 'what could happen' and 'what if's' equip workshop participants with the knowledge to make decisions that affect their personal future as well as our corporate well-being.
The future is what we make it - this is where you start to see what it may look like. Well-researched and superbly presented, this will challenge your strategic thinkers.
Rohit's talk is a must for any organisation wishing to reach their potential; understanding possible future changes/developments is critical for effective strategic thinking. His presentation was extremely informative, leading-edge, entertaining and essential viewing
There is nothing bushiness and individuals desire more than to look into the future. We will give almost anything to know what's going to happen next. Listening to Rohit was one of the most interesting and rewarding experience I've enjoyed in a very long time. Not a book report but instead an insightful and attention grabbing experience from a credentialed expert.
Your presentation received an extraordinary response from delegates with many saying it was the best they had ever seen. You were mobbed!
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.
