“Leslie Choudhury conducted a Program on ‘Personal Leadership.’ Participants included the Vice – Chancellor of a leading university, Chairmen and Managing Directors of Banks and large Conglomerates. The Governor, Bangladesh (Central) Bank formally inaugurated the Program.I asked myself what led ‘Gurus International’ to rank a youngish-looking man like him as one of the World’s top Communication Gurus. I wondered, if I had chosen the right Person to deliver the Program which we had marketed with lofty promises. To my utter satisfaction, the young Guru wearing his favourite red Jacket proved within minutes of his public appearance that there could be no other person than him to conduct such a largely attended Program. INTIMATE had never registered such a big number of Participants comprising of senior level Professionals, in any of its Programs before. Leslie’s enchanting style of presentation, eloquent deliberation, witty and humorous interaction kept the audience spell-bound throughout the Program that ended with high applause for him.”

It is only Leslie who can wear a red jacket with such panache for he delivers quite a powerful message that will be remembered for a long time to come. “

The Vision Alignment program conducted by Leslie Choudhury was amazing. We could see positive behaviour change from our core team members by even just the 2nd week, which in turn affected the rest of the company. As our industry is very competitive and time sensitive one; where we encounter constant and varied challenges that this training addressed so appropriately. This training of and applying Directive Communication Psychology has made our people more cohesive and approach challenges with a positive attitude. All of our guests at the final presentation were very impressed with the energy and the commitment of our people. I am proud of my staff and despite of the time commitment and expenses I feel and know it was a well justified decision. I highly recommend this program for any organisation who wants to bring out the very best performance from their people and create a productive environment which is aligned to corporate vision.

“I attended a leadership training with Dell in Penang, Malaysia conducted by Leslie Choudhury.

It was a big eye opener for me and the people in that class. We were taught how to be motivated and how to manage people a certain way depending on each other’s coloured brain’s profile and emotional drivers. This ‘Directive Communication Psychology’ was amazing.

We need to have Leslie come over to the Philippines to teach staff here in DELL Philippines.

I used this ‘psychology’ with the people i managed at that time and it worked very well and my group’s numbers / results grew quarter on quarter.
