Krish is an inspiration. I love working with him. He is authentic, collaborative, and sensitive to what others feel and think. He is humble and gracious, but somehow also manages to command authority that takes people with him, willingly, on a journey of learning and discovery. His leadership style is engaging and he naturally has a strong following and for very good reason. He puts his words into action, his own interests aside for others and is fearless in his pursuit of social justice. He is the man, my dog thinks I am.

As an adoptive mum, I think Krish is a great advocate for adoption, really understanding the issues. As a programme maker wanting to make a programme about adoption, he was a gift. Great communicator, sensitivity in dealing with people with a lovely broadcasting voice to boot.
