Co-Founder of Public Health and Longevity and Manager of WCC
Viren is a dynamic and inspiring speaker. Through his talks and coaching at King’s College London I have learnt a tremendous amount; his support and insight have been key to the evolution and development of my business idea.
CEO RJC Research Limited, Japan
Thanks so much for your help to us. I could learn many points for further steps. Based on those suggestions, we keep revising our strategy and materials for the coming financing process. And let me tell you that we’ll happily finish equity finance from internal members and advisers in this month about 85m JPY. It’s a great honour to get such comments from you. It’s very appreciated. We are just a tiny venture so wish we could try to keep concentrating our business development and next finance process from outside.

Viren provided an excellent overview of change management that allowed me to plan for change in my businesses. I would be happy to recommend him for anyone wishing to understand change management better.
Dr. Abdulmajeed Saif Alkhajeh
Associate Dean of Research Affairs, Faculty of Science, UAE University
Thanks for today. I really enjoyed myself and learned something excellent. Although I have been teaching and lecturing for many years, today’s workshop has been eye opening for me and I learned a lot, and I believe for sure it will improve my performance.

A huge thank you to organisers and TRAINERS! The workshop was thought provoking, highly practical, and informative.
It was well constructed and delivered. We were fully engaged throughout the whole session; this was brilliant. It was one of those workshops, I will highly recommend to a friend. Hats off.

Great workshop, loved that instructors used different methods/techniques in teaching. Never a dull moment.
Will definitely be using these tools on a daily basis
Product Management, Graphisoft Japan
Viren’s executive education program was very interesting and understandable. And I found we naturally learned and have done some of them in daily life. I think this benkyokai [study group] was a very good opportunity for us to think what we are doing to influence people and users now, and what we can do from now. I appreciate that you gave us this great opportunity.

Thanks Viren. Really appreciate the opportunity. I think it’s one of the most interesting presentations I have attended since I joined work. I would be keen for you to deliver the same for a group of fast trackers? I’m sure the community will be delighted to attend and would greatly benefit from the content.

A thoroughly enjoyable and productive way to spend a weekend! Thank you Neil for tapping in to some of my potential.
Vice President Strategy at Jagex
It was fantastic meeting you the other day at Cambridge on the seminar. I also appreciated your unorthodox view of an organization i.e. it is not one faceless mass of thousands of people… it is really thousands of individuals that need to be catered to individually. Overall, it was a great session and I felt that it covered on-the-ground challenges very well within its structure.
Product Management Department, Localisation, Graphisoft Japan
Thank you for coming to Graphisoft to give us the lecture last week. About the seminar you gave us, it was very clearly outlined, combined with descriptive illustrations and little exercises in between to keep us focused. I guess each of us feel/understand not all but some of the influential factors you mentioned. For my case, every point that I could relate myself to I learned though experiences of my life. Your lecture certainly gave more ideas to the way I think. I am very much looking forward to applying your technique! Thank you very much.
Senior Vice President, Cash Trade and GFM technology, Citibank London

I really did not feel the time passing by. 6 hours felt like one hour (this tells you everythingl)
I really enjoyed how the theory led to practice and feedback tweaking our performance. Would absolutely love to attend another workshop.
