Kamal presented at our Telstra Vantage conference in Melbourne2019 and he received a 5 out 5 from the participants at the conference- this is one of the highest ratings for a speaker we had at the event.



My national team across all of our geos (Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth and Brisbane) finished a session with Kamal last week. The team of directors and partners could really relate to his message on how to build resilience in a disrupted world and how to thrive both professionally and personally. Everyone walked out of the sessions buzzing with excitement, understanding the opportunity ahead and more importantly armed with tools and techniques necessary to tackle what is one of our generations most difficult challenges - “resilience.” Thank you Kamal!
