Testimonials of participants :-

* We were asked to attend a 3 day workshop in college at the start of our 2nd year, to enhance our communication skills. And just like almost every other student in my class, I cribbed about my holidays being cut short because of a workshop. My laziness and inconsiderate behaviour got the better of me and I didn't turn up for the 1st day. How wrong was I !! To my great astonishment, my friends who attended the workshop spoke so highly of it that I was compelled to attend the next day to experience it myself. 

What makes Craig's workshops different and special is that he not only communicates well, but also keeps the audience extremely entertained. Moreover it not only makes you communicate better, but also motivates you & gives you the zeal to learn more. An excellent communicator, a funny guy, a brilliant teacher and a FANTASTIC person!! Craig Travasso

- Harsh Thairani - Bachelor of Financial Management (Jai hind college)

* The "Being Effective" workshop opened my eyes to various factors in how we communicate. Craig manages to impress this upon us in a very humourous and lasting way. The workshop was filled with useful pictures/videos of various aspects of human interactions. I seriously recommend the workshop to those who would like to improve the way they come across to others, because it is a killer combo of fun and effectiveness.
- Akshay Khandelwal - Bachelor of Management Studies (Jai Hind College)

* It's always fun doing workshops with Craig. He also did mock interviews and trust me he ripped me apart in one of these but I am glad he did that its helped me a lot because whenever I appear for an interview next time I know what not to do and I think that's the biggest thing he taught me.
I have always shared a special bond with him and I must say he is special and a very humble person. He has an amazing sense of humour and the only thing I hate about him is the way he makes English sound so easy, believe you me whoever has heard him talk, so badly wants to have the same command over the language like he does.


I think he is God gifted and we all love him for the wonderful person he is. I can easily vouch for the fact that whomsoever got through placements this year will surely agree that it could not have been possible without Craig's effort and hard work.
- Sumit Nair - Bachelor of Management Studies (Jai Hind College)

Being confident, articulate and the art of writing is what I got from Craig’s workshop. The writing skills which he infused made my CV so robust, that I received the post of the placement head of BAF. I am grateful that due to his hard work, I laid down the legacy of hosting each orientation of degree college.

- Prita Jhaveri – Bachelor of Accounting and Finance (Jai Hind College)

* The workshop by Craig was conducted with simple pedagogic skills but filled with lots of fun. It was a perfect example of how to combine professionalism with a certain level of comfort, which felt extremely motivating.

The workshop was very informative, taught me so many things about how to present which not only includes good communication skills but one needs to be creative and innovative. Most importantly, he created a friendly environment, where learning was made easy.

- Bhagyashree More  - Bachelor of Banking and Insurance (Jai Hind college)

* GDPI - the word is enough to scare students away, but sitting through Craig's workshop - I started believing it is not as difficult and scary as it is in my head.
There were quite a few eye openers - especially relating to the posture of the interviewee and about the context of the answers. It seriously reinforces self-belief and somehow sticks by you, even when you are sitting outside the office waiting for your turn. Kudos to the workshop :) !

- Shaima Karim - Bachelor of Management Studies Jai Hind College


* Knowing the main keys of Communication helped us unlock the mystery of how we can make our presentations more effective. Craig showed us various videos related to them and gave us many examples to relate to and understand all of it in a much better way.

Today, whenever I have to go on stage to make a presentation or even give a speech, all these points come back to me and help me make a classic presentation. I would like to thank Craig for inspiring us and improving our communication skills. Since Comm-UNIQUE-ation adds on to the uniqueness of every individual.
