    We reached out to Ekaagra for an ASQ BOQ based training on Supplier Quality Audit. Ramdas and Babu did a great job engaging our diverse team (which had members from India, China and Malayasia), covered the practical standpoints of the course and conducted an assessment to gauge the effectiveness of the training. Ramdas has rich technical skills but what differentiates him is his ability to engage the class with anecdotes and hold their attention by personalizing case studies and class exercises. His sense of humor is an added bonus! I would highly recommend him as a corporate trainer for organizations looking for positive outcomes which can be quantified.
