  • I’ve seen Roshan in various avatars – from emcee to workshop host, from CEO to author! He was once invited to run a half-day workshop on Storytelling & Presence for very senior trainers of GroupM, and the workshop received a roaring 5/5 score. I would highly recommend brands and people to work with Roshan to get inspired by his passion and energy.
