“I have known Vinita for nearly 16+ years right from the time when we both were starting out in our respective careers. What I noticed even then was her single minded focus towards her work and the path that her career was going to go on. She conducted some excellent training programs for us, lessons from which I carry with me even today. Vinita has a strong work ethic and a constant yearning to excel, to do better, to learn new things, to be one step better than what she was yesterday. I have been amazed at the speed with which she has ticked of her list of aspirations which take most of us pretty much our whole lifetime and it is an inspiration to me. I have enjoyed working with her and have had many long lasting lessons. I would thoroughly recommend her as a coach. If you are in need of some tough love, Vinita is the person you need. She’s confident and candid and just someone you can be yourself with. Once you get to know her, you’ll want her for a lifelong friend. She’s a true trainer and mentor."
