It’s a sheer treat to attend a couple of sessions facilitated by Mukul Deva. I have come across very few coaches who have this immense ability to influence people so naturally. He is a clear thinker and can explain complex corporate jargons/terms in very simple words. With his wealth of experience as entrepreneur, author and army man, he can wear many thinking hats and can suggest very practical insights.
Mukul made each session impactful in listening to me, making me feel comfortable and then helping me discover the key stages to tackling each challenge.
