TESTIMONIALS

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.

Krish has founded a very successful NGO that helps different local authorities in the UK source for Foster and Adoptive families. He has also provided international consultation to countries such as Singapore to help start-ups set up to do similar work.

Vivienne Ng

Chief Psychologist, Ministry of Social and Family Development
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.
