Clients Speak

“Brainayan’s training programs are based on psychology and neuroscience research. They have a track record of working with top notch tech companies and understand the nuances of creating impact and building careers in corporates. They also are good partners for leadership development. For me, Nitin has been my go-to coach for a while now. His deep understanding of personality types and how it affects people’s behaviour and decision making, his depth of understanding of corporate life and its nuances, and his style of nudging me to go outside of my comfort zone is what makes him a great coach.

Kalpana Behara, Vertical Lead for Data Curation and Validation, Tech, in a US-based on-demand transportation network company

 

“I have had the pleasure of working with Nitin across two companies–Facebook and Grab. It has been an incredibly powerful and impactful association across many dimensions. … I would not hesitate to recommend him to any company looking for anything to do with people—ranging from a large OD intervention to a small team building workshop. He has the passion and the experience to make every intervention a value creating one.”

 

Sandeep Khanna, Lead—People and Organizational Development in a Singapore-based leading technology company and erstwhile start-up unicorn

“I’ve had the privilege of working with Nitin both as a colleague and a client. It’s always a great experience working with Nitin, who is an absolute perfectionist and a very well organized person be it his thoughts, approach or execution, and he runs Brainayan exactly the same way. It’s always the customer, or rather his audience, who will be his priority, and this is an extremely important trait in the field of learning and development. Nitin is also very inspiring, which is a great quality as a facilitator as that helps keep the audience engaged and leave them motivated.
