Thank you for all of your help in helping us pick the right speaker for our Convention. Krish was a HIT! I look forward to working with you to secure someone for our next event!
I wanted to let you know that Krish was amazing! We had excellent feedback about him. We purchased his latest book and handed them out to the attendees after he spoke. He took the time to sign the books for those that wanted autographs. He was such a pleasure to work with. Very inspiring!
Krish was excellent. He is very dynamic and perfectly blends humor with the key messages of his presentation. The preliminary reviews of the audience surveys have been very positive.
He was awesome as always!!!
