“Rohit Talwar was a highlight at the 1st European Futurists Conference Lucerne, as a speaker and as a facilitator. In fact, for the state secretary for research and education of Switzerland – a sponsor of our conference – Rohit was simply the best.”

“Rohit Talwar is a unique communicator. His capacity for combining fact with narrative, balancing right and left brain and mixing education with entertainment make his presentations compelling. In the cluttered world of professional facilitators, guest speakers, moderators and consultants, Rohit is both a refreshing change and a valuable investment.”

“When Rohit genuinely speaks from the heart, about Vision 2020, and where he sees the world moving, it leaves the entire auditorium spell bound, and engrossed in his highly researched, and very creative and innovative visual presentation. Moreover, his interaction with the audience during his Q&A sessions is crisp and impactful. And salute, once again, to his thought provoking, visionary foresightedness.“

“The Dubai audience is a tough crowd to please – and keep entertained – Rohit did both with a level of energy, insight, enthusiasm and professionalism that has left them wanting a lot more. When organizing an event, Rohit exemplifies exactly what you want from a visionary keynote speaker and chairman – responsive and involved during the planning stages and sensitive and committed to the audience’s needs throughout the event. As a speaker he delivers a well researched, highly engaging and consistently practical vision of how to make the future work for you. As a conference Chairman he is professional, thoroughly prepared and well organized. Top marks for Rohit from everyone involved, I would have no hesitation in recommending him at anytime.”

“Rohit’s presentation was very much tailored to the audience and provided an eye opening vision of what the future may hold and its impacts to all businesses. His delivery was excellent, providing an engaging, challenging and humour filled talk. As a keynote speaker, Rohit definitely delivered.”

“Rohit is recognised as a global leader in his field, but is also an engaging and inclusive speaker/facilitator, always making sure that non-expert groups feel relaxed and able to participate. I would recommend him highly for future events of this nature.”

“I saw your talk and enjoyed it very much. The perspectives on the Indian and Gulf State growth was particularly interesting.”

“The presentation was excellent – it blows your mind to think what’s happening outside of our own little bubbles!”

“Just to say a quick “thank you” for last Thursday. From the feedback it seems that everyone thoroughly enjoyed your talk and it definitely gave us much food for thought.”

“Excellent presentation last night. Massively thought provoking.”

“I would like to thank you for the very interesting and thought provoking talk you gave to us and will certainly take any opportunity to hear you speak again.”
