Dear Benedict,

Thank you for inviting us to the Bangalore BizLitFest.  The passion, energy and enthusiasm of every author/speaker at the event was truly contagious.   For both Shalini & me, it was also a great opportunity to interact directly with potential readers and to sense how our work will resonate with them. Several people bought the book for themselves, stopped by to chat post the session, and one gentleman bought two copies for his two sons, who are early in their careers. That experience was really touching and made me so happy about having written the book.

The BizLitFest is an amazingly well curated, and well-organised platform bringing together lovers of books — readers and writers. I’ve already ordered several books on Amazon for gifting, downloaded a few on my Kindle, and am looking forward to a relaxed Sunday evening of reading the books of authors who I have now seen and heard in person.

Once again, thank you so much for inviting us.  And Ahana and Poulomi, thank you for bringing this opportunity to us.

Dear Benedict,

I would like to compliment you for a wonderful Bangalore Business Literary Festival. It was one of the most memorable days of 2019 for me ... It was curated and organised to the tee, having impactful sessions. Keep it up and keep going ...


I would like to show my gratitude to you for providing an opportunity to showcase my book 'Experiments in Leadership' to the perfect audience. 


I had shared my dream of seeing the majority of Bestsellers in Business Books (Crossword, Sapna, Amazon, etc. rankings) being Indian authors for which people like you, Prof Raghu are the best suited to begin work on ecosystem strengthening activities and actions.
