" We asked Vishnu to run a workshop at a finance conference, introducing lean thinking to our finance and administration area, this was a difficult task as lean is most often seen as a manufacturing process, but Vishnu was able to create a great event, engaging the team in the concept and then leading them through to project start. Very creative use of the material and very worth while event"
