James McCulloch

Dear Dr. Bhatia,

I am just returning home to New Zealand after my first trip to India, and my first experience of your incredible event.

Both are memories that will stay with me for a lifetime.

I had simply never experienced an event with the breadth, warmth, inspiration and celebration that you have achieved over the past few days.

To meet you (albeit briefly) was an honour, as was to speak at the Congress.
But for Inspire Group to receive 2 awards?! Well, that has already been huge news for us at our offices across Australia and New Zealand.

So, thank you. For all that you have achieved with this event; and all that you clearly devote to it. To hear you speak about that was inspiring and humbling. I hope that I am able to welcome you to New Zealand one day.

With Gratitude

- James McCulloch, Director of Leadership, Inspire Group

Dear Bhatia,

It was indeed a pleasure for me to again be invited as guest speaker at that the annual HRD Congress.
The experience is truly energising and I trust my contribution added to such.

To have received the CHRO of the year award has given me the latitude to further promote the congress across my network and has provide me with a valuable accolade upon which I can continue to build personal branding as a HR professional.

Once the dates are set for next year, please inform me and I will immediately set to work to promote attendance and participation from more European based colleagues.
I am committed to helping you expand this event and volunteer myself to take a more active role as moderator if you require such support for next year.

Many thanks and best of luck with remainder of the conference.

Dear Raju,

I am writing to you from a cold and rainy London, having returned from Mumbai yesterday. Congratulations on running such a successful conference - full of diverse speakers, exhibitors and delegates, all with a common interest in HR excellence. Thank you for inviting Alistair and me to attend and to speak - it was hard work chairing the coaching congress for a day, but a role I will fulfil with pleasure any time! I met some great, like-minded people and it was an excellent day with a broad range of presentations and conversations. And of course there is nothing like finishing the day with dancing and trying to get all the delegates onto the stage!

I particularly want to say thank you also to your team and would appreciate it if you would pass on my regards. Of particular note are Aasif, A.P. and Zahir, all of whom went out of their way to ensure everything went smoothly and our needs were met.

I wish you all the best and look forward to connecting again soon.

All the best,

Dr. Philimon Chitagu

Dear Dr. Bhatia,

Just to express my appreciation with how World HRD Congress was organized. There has been tremendous changes which in my view are for the benefit of the HR fraternity.

The event afforded participants opportunities to learn, network, collaborate and present.

Well done!

The world is made of HR practitioners with varying competencies. Some are ahead of others due to geographical locations. What the even has done was to equalize those who were ahead of others through sharing practical information which can be implemented even in developing countries.

Bringing together more than 67 countries to participate at such magnificent event is not a joke. A lot hard work was invested.

The topics which were put in place were very relevant to the cause of Human Resources and can be implemented.

Thank you,

- Philimon Chitagu (CHRPG), Human Resources and Administration Director, Schweppes Zimbabwe Limited
