Ravi modernized the learning experience approach at Bluewolf (an IBM company). He can quickly become an expert in new technologies and effectively leverage them for clients to add value. I think of Ravi as a thought leader in this area, and even brought him on some sales calls to share his expertise. He was "the closer" in one of those calls for sure, yet I'd bet he has played a role in winning business multiple times.

I had the pleasure of working with Ravi during his time at Bluewolf/IBM. Ravi is a consummate professional and always looking for the most appropriate way to approach a customer’s learning requirements to achieve the best outcomes for them. In many ways Ravi is a visionary and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

Rasheed Ibrahim, reported to me at IBM.
Ravi and I have worked together in a couple of projects at Bluewolf / IBM. I was impressed with his methods for creating engaging and meaningful training and learning activities and materials for our clients. Ravi is passionate for what he does, he listens to opinions and views, helps make sense of challenging situations and brings his expertise to driving the best solutions forward. He was recurrently praised on our engagements by his professionalism and the outstanding quality of the work delivered.
Felipe Batista, Project Director, a colleague at IBM.
I would recommend working with Ravi as he was a superb team member. He always brought great ideas on how our course delivery could be improved, both on a micro level (course elements and execution) as well as a more macro level (eg how the process and technology could be improved). He brought great subject knowledge and an important understanding of the user. He was also a pleasure to work with personally, with a positive, can-do attitude and a great sense of humour.
Dafydd Dent, Curriculum Manager at Google, a senior colleague.
Ravi is a creative, proactive, knowledgeable professional that has deep experience in learning methodologies and tools. Working with him, I appreciated his ability to take a vague problem statement, add a lot of his own thought and expertise to come up with effective and compelling solutions. Ravi also understands business dynamics and he is very proactive in *proposing* new approaches to improve things. He has a strong work ethic and he is also a great person to work with. I sincerely miss working with him!
Francesco Bombassei, Senior Technical Program Manager, my manager at Google.
Ravi has fantastic expertise in learning technology, but what makes him really special is his ability and patience in explaining very complicated things in ways that anyone can understand. He is extremely committed to progressing his knowledge of learning technology and he helped to move the organisation forwards as a result.
