“It’s both my pleasure and honor to acknowledge Dr Kaushik Sridhar for presenting on ”A Career in Sustainability” to the Insight Academy community in February 2021. He was a fantastic presenter; engaging and passionate about his subject matter. He had great examples of ways to apply his concepts in work & personal life.

Kaushik’s candid style and humor won over the packed house of faculty and students the moment he began speaking. And to no surprise, he received some of the highest feedback of all of our speakers. So much so in fact, that bringing him back next year is a “no-brainer.”

So if you get a chance to bring him into your organisation or conference, do it before someone else books him.”

“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.”

“Dr Sridhar is an engaging and informative speaker on a variety of public stages. His presentation on building an organisational sustainability roadmap was perfectly concise and extremely useful to employees at any level and businesses in any stage of growth. This information is really important, and I look forward to him presenting his insights at future conferences and events”

“Dr Kaushik was an incredibly insightful speaker at our recent Future Leaders Forum event which aims to inspire young business leaders. Kaushik spoke to our students about his experience in the social impact space – his contributions were invaluable and students in attendance reported being inspired and enlightened on this subject matter. I have no hesitations recommending Kaushik as a speaker – he is not only an expert in this domain but also an absolute pleasure to work and communicate with.” 


“Surprised, shocked, worried, angered and motivated all describe how we felt during and after seeing and hearing the Climate Reality presentation by Kaushik.  His enthusiasm for and knowledge of the subject matter kept us alert and engaged throughout the presentation and subsequent discussion.  The clear influence of Al Gore was evident in spades.  The true test of impact now is what we do individually and corporately with the reality of climate change.” 



“Kaushik was approached by my team to speak at the Melbourne International Student Conference 2018, where he presented the conference keynote titled “A pragmatic passion”. Kaushik shared the story of how he has become the leader he is today, engaging the audience by sharing the challenges he faced, where he found motivation, and how he has learnt to combine pragmatism with his passion for creating positive change. The conference delegates spoke highly of Kaushik’s keynote, and stated that they felt they could connect with what he was sharing. I would highly recommend Kaushik for other speaking engagements as he is an excellent public speaker who knows how to tailor his presentations to the audience.”

He was quick to engage our audience and shared his ideas, passion and knowledge on corporate responsibility and sustainability in the context of volunteering. He’s a master connector between the voluntary and corporate sectors and astutely layers his presentation with evidence, purpose and enquiry. I recommend him highly for his inspirational and tangible impact.”
