Experience. Knowledge. Perspective. When I'm struggling with a client issue, I know I can go to Deepak and get keen insight, as well as practical advice. Deepak is an expert in transforming businesses. From our many conversations on building businesses - and also the Fireside Chats he hosts - I've found he's one of the few people who understand both the internal and external implications of change and transformation initiatives. If you're struggling with planning or managing a change in your organization, Deepak is your man.

Gordon Adelsberg

I was truly impressed with Deepak's ability to understand our needs so quickly. I had the pleasure of working with and mentoring Deepak for almost two years at National Grid. He was responsible for many of the organization design and change initiatives during my time there. I remember having one (and only one) conversation about better promoting the Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) initiatives there. The next day he came in with a presentation that called out the strengths and challenges of our programs, and how we can better drive our I&D initiatives by providing an approach to socialize our Employer of Choice programs more effectively. I was truly impressed with Deepak's ability to understand our needs so quickly, and come up with a plan to mitigate these challenges.
