“I recently had the pleasure of working with Pandit for Employee Appreciation Week. Pandit treated our employees to a delightful session to understand the importance of giving and receiving appreciation, as it pertains to our 'emotional' and 'social' health with great tips on how to give appreciation effectively.
We ended with a relaxing guided meditation and insightful Q&A. This was such a powerful and engaging session. Many of our people commented on how nice it was to be able to take a quick emotional health break in the middle of their work day and they left feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on the day (plus give some extra appreciation to their colleagues)!
We are looking forward to bringing Pandit back regularly for focused sessions on 'Taking Charge of Our Emotional Health.' Thank you, Pandit!”
“Pandit set exactly the right tone for a recent event my team and I created for leaders in the HR and talent attraction space.
His keynote on mindful leadership was inspiring. Pandit emphasized, among other things, that "self-care isn't selfish," adding that it's important for leaders to "lead by example, not just in how you perform in the office but also in your own self-care and wellbeing." After his keynote, many of the attendees at this event told me how much they appreciated Pandit's keynote, quoting several things he said back to me. Pandit closed his keynote with a group meditation as well.
Along with inspiring, Pandit is warm, accessible, and has a good sense of humor — all the qualities you might want from a keynote speaker!”

“Pandit was very personable and charismatic...he kept his energy high, bringing the audience with him.”
“I have been to other stress management presentations...but this was arguably the best. Pandit is a very dynamic speaker. His presentation was very eye-opening and engaging. I felt relaxed and recharged.”
“Pandit was an engaging and interesting speaker with an extremely timely and relevant topic for today’s workplace. We particularly enjoyed the exercise he did, he had everyone in a large room practicing mindfulness!”
“Recently we were offered the opportunity to have Pandit come to our Cadillac HQ in Soho and lead our group through a 30 minute (invaluable introduction) to mediation. At the end of the session the group was in agreement; Pandit guided us through a relaxing and ultimately restorative meditation. In fact, we didn’t want it to be over!”
“I had a chance to invite Pandit Dasa to our IBM offices in Austin to speak to our development support team on the topic of stress management and work-life balance. He taught our team how to develop positive relationships, manage our emotions and appreciate the work of our colleagues. One member said the session was “refreshing” and another wanted to know when he could return. We loved having him here and hope to work with him again.”
