I had the good fortune of attending Deepa's virtual sessions on 'Transition to Leadership roles' during the June of 2021. The program aligned well with my expected learning outcomes. It remains as one of the most well-structured,
highly engaging, effectively communicated sessions with interactive moments touching on various subjects like - decision making, risk management, LISTENING(I particularly enjoyed this part!), influencing and negotiating.
The quality of the content and the clarity with which everything was conveyed can only be described as top notch. I am grateful for Deepa's professionalism and willingness to coach me virtually despite a practical
time-zone difference. I would highly recommend Deepa's mentorship/coaching for students, professionals and entrepreneurs alike for the definitive positive effect it brings about! Enlightening sessions conducted
in an engaging and highly informative way. Would definitely mention the inspiring effect it had giving me. The commitment by Deepa despite time zone differences and her tendency to communicate with clarity deserves
