I have known Sonali professionally for 8 years and find her a delight to work with. She is very professional in her approach and passionate about training. For every program, no matter the size, she brings to bear her in-depth knowledge, her extensive experience and meticulous preparation. Sonali makes it a point to explore and understand the depth of our training requirements and tailors the programs to meet our needs at team levels and often at individual levels as well.
