Manoj Nair
AVP & Head of Marketing – Infosys BPM
Prof Veer Mehta conducted a series of leadership development programs for our middle and senior leadership teams. Our attempt was to make our senior managers think like CEOs, be able to appreciate the external and internal business dynamics and correlations that are existent in any company and industry. His programs achieved this wonderfully. It provided our managers with a compelling, real world experience that is quite impossible to replicate without a live simulation. We saw a perceptible enhancement in business understanding and confidence that our mangers exhibited in projects they undertook post the program. Thanks Prof Mehta. Your programs are well remembered. Your inimitable style and real world examples can liven up the most dreary topic!
