During my interactions with Amit, I found him to be a seasoned and forward-thinking strategist who knows how to build a strong strategy that transforms the business to drive growth. He is adept in advising executive leadership and management with integrity - he has the courage to inform them of what they need to know, and not what they want to hear.

"I had the opportunity to work with Amit on a merger integration for two Fortune 100 US banks, which had multiple workstreams under the program and required reporting to C-level executives. Amit's strategic insight and effective communication on change management was beneficial in optimizing people management and streamlining process delivery. Amit's positive attitude and commitment to a strong work ethic make him an invaluable asset when he participates in projects of any scale or complex strategic initiatives."

"I worked very closely with Amit on a banking transformation project where he oversaw the organizational change management track. I was very impressed with Amit's ability to lead executive client discussions on change management, formulate a customized plan and present new opportunities in simple, easy to understand terms (i.e. minimal "consultant speak"). Amit is a top-notch consultant who knows his stuff and delivers results. I'd hire Amit again if and when the need arises."
