I met Faisal at a stage when I was moving back to India after 20 years of being abroad. My sessions and brainstorming with him helped me to transition back into India smoothly. Faisal quietly challenges your assumptions and guides you into the right activities and paths.

He is very sincere in moving you to a path of success and his management insights coming out of strong experience helped to shape my career transition. He does not hesitate to share his knowledge and frameworks that will help you.

I hope I will get to work with you again in the future.

Hi Faisal Sir,

I would like to take a minute and say thank you for all your guidance throughout my coaching. I am really fortunate to have a mentor like you during this period. Your guidance and expertise helped me in securing a great career opportunity.
Every session that we interacted, was an enriching learning experience for me. The way you have mentored me - elevator pitch & exit statement, staying positive, art of negotiation, financial planning and choosing the best options were really commendable and I will never forget those mantras in my career.
I am really thankful for extending your inputs on quickly assimilating in to new organization and mentoring me for next career growth (short and long term goals, networking and creating visibility). Few competencies that I really admire you sir & I wanted to inculcate in me! You are really approachable, great listener & mentor, interpersonal savvy and you are really kind to help others.

I am sure there are many people out there would really get benefited with your experience in this field and I strongly recommend the service for others when in need.

Thanks for everything
