Krishna held everyone’s attention with a combination of real life stories, successes and learnings from working with multi-ethnic groups across the world and here in the UK; sharing insights and a genuine passion for engaging with communities. His key message was about building ongoing relationships rather than brief transactional ones; putting in effort to build trust is worth every in the longer term.
