We invite Kamal to speak every year at our week long 'boot camp' that kicks off our annual programme for 30 Senior Marketers. We always run a survey after the event to get feedback on our speakers, to ensure we're programming the very best. This year 87% of our scholars rated his session 'Excellent;' the highest score they can give. And this is exactly why we invite him back each year. He is ALWAYS one of the highest if not the highest scoring speaker we have. Why? When someone has trodden such a varied path he now has the capacity to resonate with almost everyone and to have a meaningful and lasting impact. he always brings his A game to his sessions with such great energy and honesty. We'll be inviting him back again next year...and the next.”

My national team across all of our geos (Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth and Brisbane) finished a session with Kamal last week. The team of directors and partners could really relate to his message on how to build resilience in a disrupted world and how to thrive both professionally and personally. Everyone walked out of the sessions buzzing with excitement, understanding the opportunity ahead and more importantly armed with tools and techniques necessary to tackle what is one of our generations most difficult challenges - “resilience.” Thank you Kamal!”

The Rezilium team recently conducted a series of virtual masterclasses for us at WA Super. Since our organisation is undergoing a period of significant change, we encouraged everyone to participate in the Emotional and Mental Resilience Masterclass sessions. The content was highly relevant and feedback from our teams confirmed they found the sessions practical, informative and engaging. While many webinars can be challenging, the program that was conducted by Rezilium was incredibly interactive and engaging, and as such, I would highly recommend Kamal.

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kamal and Rezilium for over 13 years, firstly at Westpac and then in my current role at JDRF Australia. Rezilium has always created training programs that are research and data driven but more importantly are practical. Our team recently did a virtual training session with Kamal and he managed to keep our team very engaged and leave with practical implementable tools at the end.”
