“A very positive mentality, cheerful even, combined with a great drive and lots of energy, topped of with meticulous attention to detail. I’ve worked with dozens of project managers. Only two were able to excel in the complex, tense, slow, and sometimes even hostile environment of a telecoms operator. Shashi is one of them. I highly recommend him.”

“I hired Shashi Consulting for my Department Project Management Office as management consultant for a short, intensive assignment. Shashi conducted an audit which resulted in a clear picture of the project management maturity level of our department. Based on the outcomes of the audit, he delivered independent, practical and quickly applicable advice. No vague, theoretical reports.
Thanks to his advice, I now have a clear view where we currently are and where our future growth can be, including the way we can achieve our growth. Within a very short timeframe, he also has built good working relationships with many colleagues within Telesur. The value Shashi delivers does not limit itself to his expertise in project management, but extends to marketing and telecommunications as well. He is a true global consultant, who will be of value to his clients through his knowledge and his adaptability.
Hiring Shashi Consulting is rather expensive, and I eventually agreed to our cooperation. Now I that I’ve experienced that he truly delivers superb value in terms of the quality of his work, quickly responds to changes and really puts his client first, my investment is more than justified.”
– Robert Hahn, Manager Project Management Office, Telesur
“I asked Shashi to help and coach me in my new role as project manager. Firstly, I asked him to educate me about theories regarding some elements in the role of a project manager. Secondly, I asked Shashi to provide me with feedback based on real situations, which I introduced myself as case studies. During these sessions, I became more aware of my role and responsibilities as project manager.
For me, the greatest benefit of the coaching sessions are the tools I received in order to influence my environment. The effectiveness of the tools from the coaching sessions proved their worth in practical situations. Overall, the coaching content was tailored to my specific needs. The result is a clear added value in my performance for my clients. In my experience, Shashi is very professional in his communication and in fulfilling his commitments. I find his coaching to be very useful and instructive. For these reasons, I can warmly recommend Shashi Consulting for coaching and guiding project managers.”

“The past few years I worked in a very pleasant way with Shashi at KPN on various Projects. I have to say that our co-operation was performing well, which can be explained by the “human approach” of Shashi. When he knows you’re committed, he will trust and accept your output and deliverables. I think this is an approach which will appreciate a lot of people working in Projects, because this is not exactly a common way-of-working. I hereby recommend Shashi to any organisation which needs a professional, human interested Projectmanager.”
– Paul Kolhorn , Business Consultant, KPN Mobile

“If you’re looking for a great project manager; you’re probably eager to have a PM who is not a ‘yes-sir’-guy but presents you a balanced overview of the best possible solutions. You probably want a PM who is really involved and works his ass off like it is his own company. And you probably want a PM who has great interpersonal skills to align all parties within your organization and is just good-old-fun to work with. Well, in that case you are probably looking for Shashi. “

He was responsible during 1 year for some crucial business projects in my theme Next Generation. His main focus during that year was mainly the development of the first apps for the different Mobile consumer brands. Notwithstanding the timelines given by the business and the many business desires, he got the job done. We launched the apps and got excellent ratings for the apps. As theme leader innovation, it was an honor to get him in my team.”

“Shashi is allergic to people how don’t give their heart and soul into their jobs. He always does himself. Shashi can be dead serious and relaxed at the same time, is socially engaged, and acts as a motivator to project members to deliver on time, but always with high quality deliverables as the standard. Leading complex projects with many stakeholders is no big deal for him, as he is able to interact with higher Management and at the same time able to deep dive technical issues with developers. As you can imagine, I can highly recommend Shashi for technically challenging projects within a commercial environment.
Don’t put him on internal, non-customer centric projects; he will die inside…”
