Thank you for that inspiring speech! It is very rare to find someone who can speak with their whole body. Your body language was great. Facial expression was truly genuine.

Aalok is a very dynamic speaker and strategist. He has got a knack for engaging everyone even till the last row of audience. This was during the last session of the show, when most people are ready to pack and go home, he was able to keep the energy levels of other speakers and participants at a constant peak through till the very end. Exceptional speaker and moderator I’d highly recommend.
