The moderator in particular was very good, thoroughly professional and very much international. I specially enjoyed his candid views, insight and wit.

Rajiv Jamkhedkar, CEO "I had the pleasure of working with Chetan during a Global leadership team meet for AEGON, one of the world's leading Insurance company, hosted in New Delhi. The leadership group included CEOs from 20 countries, Corporate Centre functional Heads etc. - a group of 60 diverse people. The meeting was about a change agenda within the company and Chetan was an excellent facilitator of that discussion. He has good knowledge of the financial and capital markets. He understood our business and our agenda quickly and very clearly. After that, he was able to synthesize his knowledge of the Indian marketplace, global economic situation and used it to provoke critical questions, paraphrase participant feedback in useful categories for further exploration by the team. To me, the best part was that Chetan brought the discussion alive. He was always encouraging honest opinions within the group without allowing it to stray form the core topic. Overall, I would say that Chetan helped make that meeting very useful for our Group."

Yateesh Srivastava, Chief Marketing Officer"Chetan, Likewise, It was a great pleasure to interact with you during the GLT. I learned a lot from watching the way in which you built rapport with your audience and slowly but surely drew them out to express their perspectives and viewpoints. In fact both, Alex Wynaendts and Jan Nooitdedagt, mentioned to me that you were the best moderator they had worked with. In fact your role in making the GLT a hit (by the way the average rating was 8.3 / 10) cannot be over-stated. I certainly hope to be in touch with you at a personal level. Talking to you always gave me new insights and perspectives on a variety of issues."

Nishchae Suri, Managing Director“Chetan hosted Mercer's Asia Pacific HR Leader Series forum: Blueprint to win the talent challenge in Mumbai on 25 August 2011. Chetan successfully engaged the audience in energetic conversations on talent, leadership and employee engagement, to name a few. His knowledge, business acumen and understanding of the theme at hand were instrumental in creating meaningful dialogues amongst HR leaders attending the event. Chetan also moderated a panel discussion at the event themed, "Extreme HR - Managing Talent in a hyper growth market". His articulation, line of questioning and ability to hold the audiences' attention through lively interactions while sustaining the focus of the forum is truly commendable. Most importantly, Chetan added humour to the forum which is often missing in corporate settings.”

Dr. PV Bhide --  President - Corporate HR"Having dealt with Human resources for 37 years, it has been a large part of my duty to spot talent. With Chetan I did spot a very good one. His knowledge of the subject and my company could be parallel to anybody who is an employee. His use of words was fascinating as was his sense of humour. I could see everybody in the audience enjoying every bit of the discussion, as was Chetan himself and at the end it was no surprise that we came out with several solutions and view points which frankly, I never thought would be possible."

Inder Walia, Group Director- Human Resources and Integration“Working with Chetan was special for several reasons – his ability to effectively link up contemporary news with the subject on hand; bringing 'outside in' perspective as posers to the panel - wide spectrum knowledge to leverage on any topic thus provoking and providing space for creative expressions from panel - interjecting with and humour in the right dose at the required juncture to steer the discussion on another path. Needless to say that I very much enjoyed your moderating session with great time management ability as well.”

Rajeev Dubey, President (HR, After-Market & Corporate Services) & Member of the Group Management Board"I never realised that a moderator had a major role to play in a symposium. But what I experienced in the Mercer Talent Seminar was an eye opener. Chetan made the entire experience seem like an art and science. The way every part of the seminar was conducted seemed it was carefully and scientifically planned but the way it was carried out was an art. I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the panel discussion and found myself saying things I was not prepared for, but which came naturally and was perhaps far more effective. The reason for this was the way Chetan handled the discussion, made me introspect and come up with many more aspects of the topic on hand. I was left wanting more."
