“Dr. Kaushik spoke at our Leadership Victoria and Rotary Club of Melbourne evening meeting in February this year. I engaged Kaushik as a speaker because of his incredible work history of creating positive change in his various roles. Kaushik has become an expert in how to create real and lasting change to the people and culture of an organisation, which in turn has huge benefits to the wider community and environment. Dr. Kaushik has achieved phenomenal outcomes in a short amount of time and was able to share the ‘how’ of creating change with our audience which was very valuable and inspiring. I would highly recommend Dr. Kaushik as a speaker at any event that wants to inspire and give practical steps of ‘how to achieve long term change.’ He is an incredible person who has a lot to celebrate.”
