“Building an inclusive culture and improving the gender ratio has been an important agenda for us at Nestlé Skin Health. Madhu during her recent visit to India addressed our employees and in the process helped us uncover and address ‘Unconscious Bias at the workplace’. She did this in a non-threatening way and shared simple ways to approach bias with a lot of real life examples. Also, she facilitated and encouraged two-way discussion which kept the session very engaging and drove ownership from the audience. Thank you Madhu for the session. Really happy that our managers are now familiar with this very important topic which many times is neglected in organizations.”

Madhu, Thank you so much for the coaching conversation. I found it really motivating and I have definitely felt a shift in focus. I came to a few realisations about my self sabotage and other harmful strategies, and you have given me a great platform to begin to change these.

Thank you, Madhu for your energy, insight, and simple practical tips on Emotional Intelligence, which is a tricky subject matter. Professions students were very lucky to have that experience with you today. Your warmth and rapport building skills very quickly had the students opening up and participating well in the activities. You created lighter moments in what can be a rather heavy topic. It was a well-facilitated Masterclass.

Madhu is an excellent facilitator and a passionate and engaging presenter. As female university students we were honoured to have her present to us and learn more about gaining leadership roles in our professional careers. She instilled great confidence in all of us, was very logical and was able to deliver more complex ideas in a very straight forward and accessible way. The workshop offered plenty of opportunities for students to participate and share new ideas. The skills learned from this workshop will certainly be of use throughout our careers.

Madhu stepped into my life at the right time. She listened patiently to my needs and helped me work on my mindset. I moved from feeling depressed to feeling confident. I really started to believe in myself. I let go of expectations as a woman, that were holding me back. She also helped me with the right kind of language to use during interviews, which got me quick conversions. I cracked a job at the next level, and I am stepping into my second innings.

Thank you to Madhu for helping me to go to the next level in understanding myself and what drives me. Armed with this knowledge I can stride more confidently in the direction of my purpose, with clarity and understanding of the "why". I highly recommend Madhu as she has a very caring, knowledgeable approach and challenges me to think outside the box as well as live with authenticity - which is what I need to brand myself in the corporate market.

We invited Madhu to facilitate a session for the entire HR team on ‘Learning to Learn’ during our annual HR Offsite. Madhu helped the audience approach ‘learning’ as fun, meaningful and enriching through an interactive group exercise. We really enjoyed her facilitation and wish her all the best for her future endeavors
