Vishal conducted a 3 week long black belt six sigma training at Novartis. Having attended many such corporate trainings I was initially very apprehensive of the training however it was one of the best I have attended.
What distinguishes Vishal from the rest is his sheer passion, commitment and patience in delivering the trainings. Not only was Vishal expert in the course content but he also took the extra effort of making the training fun, interesting and enjoyable for participants from different functions. By giving relevant examples he made sure that participants could understand the theoretical concept in practice and could relate to them. I thoroughly enjoyed the training and would recommend Vishal for such trainings.

It is hard to come by a Trainer like Manoj Keshav. He makes learning look so simple and so effective. His sessions covers a lot of information delivered in concise chunks that are easy to absorb. The structures are clear, logical and effective. Manoj puts a lot of thought and expertise into them. I didn’t just learn ‘How’, ‘What’ and ‘Why’ also became much clear.

Vishal has been an amazing and extremely passionate facilitator. I am thoroughly impressed by his simple way of explaining complicated concepts, way of engaging the audience, way to keep us interested, eagerness to cover concepts beyond the curriculum just for our benefits, sharing relevant experiences and case studies to help us assimilate the concepts, and last but not the least his immense knowledge of the subject. I believe this is one of the best training programs I have attended and 90% of the credit goes to Vishal for conducting it the way he has.

Thanks a ton to him for making me a better professional.
