"I attended an MQ learning workshop where Deepak guided us through a value and purpose discovery journey.


I would unreservedly recommend his sincere and inspiring approach. The way Deepak designs and facilitates his workshops is shaped by the creativity that was deeply rooted in his rich and versatile life experience. The depth of conversations, the connections made in such an environment is truly what we need in the business world, deeper self-awareness would support empathy and collaboration in the workplace.


I’m sure he’ll be able to bring such creativity and wisdom to more people."

"MQ Learning's training is very refreshing and to the point. Deepak is able to notice when to let the group speak and when to move on which is a big plus for me. It is amazing how his seemingly easy exercises create such clarity about your values and beliefs.


His experience in both the business side and the 'soft' side really make a difference."
