  • Power Speaking Skills with NLP
    Now and from times immemorial, the one skill that makes a  person stand out, succeed  and create change is his ability to transfer information and knowledge with clarity, to persuade effectively and to inspire with wit and eloquence is a sure-fire way of evolving   from an executive to a world-class leader. In this highly interactive and intensive workshop, you will learn to be a clear, concise  and a compelling speaker. Using the principles of NLP or Mind Mapping®, you will learn to analyze needs and characteristics, develop deep rapport and scintillate all audiences.
  • Appreciative Inquiry-based Leadership
    Appreciative Inquiry based Leadership is a new and innovative approach to change that is proving its capacity to engage, inspire, and energize individuals and organizations towards positive results. AI helps organizations and individuals make the paradigm shift from solving problems to creating opportunities. Unlike traditional change and leadership methodologies which focus on issues and problems, AI engages groups in identifying successes, strengths and what their organization looks like at its best. It then builds on those assets to catalyze all transfers and diffuse innovation meaningfully.
  • Systems Thinking for Organizational Development
    Drawn and inspired from Peter Senge’s Fifth Discipline, this talk and short workshop generates powerful insights on how change occurs, how change can be managed to convert all organizations into powerful vortexes of learning and virtuous growth. First delivered at the Asian Institute of Management, this interaction has matured to blend in mutilple schools of thought and practical approaches for the 21st century.
  • PitBulls and Entrepreneurship
    Most other learning interactions on entrepreneurship are built around how to have a vision, create a mission, write a plan and then mind the store. None of them puts across the science behind how to light a fire under one’s belly. This talk/workshop fires you up such that when you and your teams get ignited the world will come watch you burn. This is good for private entrepreneurs as well as corporate entrepreneurship.
  • Sales and Sales Leadership
    Selling has never been easy. Most salespeople learn how to sell only when they doggedly learn to beat the streets and get into the sales pit often. Those that make it to the, proverbial, top forget how they acquired the skills and suffer while having to transfer the knowledge. This talk/workshop will revalidate your and polish up your innate selling skills and also equip you with powerful yet gentle coaching skills to help and lead others into sales stardom.


“Every time I listen to Raju speak, I am simply blown away. Watching this guy work has inspired me to always give my best. Why? Because his mere presence demands it. His work ethic is second to none. Another aspect about Raju that I admire is his creative insight on almost anything. When he designs trainings or speeches, there is always this element of surprise (in a good way, of course). Admittedly, I borrow some of his work (with his  permission, I mean). If you haven’t been to one of his seminars or if you haven’t worked on a project with him, you’re missing a lot!” – Boom San Agustin, CC, CL, Professional Public Speaker & Trainer, Trainer, Coach, Speaker

Truly an asset to Philippine Toastmasters, his mere presence caused public speaking to evolve many notches higher in this country.” – Arvy Villamarzo, Assistant Manager, Citibank

“Having seen the behind-the-scenes work of Raju, and experienced some personal moments that are revealing of worldview, temperament and character, I would fully recommend him as a facilitator/ guide/ consultant to anyone who would find value in investigating and reflecting upon life and relationships — whether they be at work or outside of work. Some say that the measure of a man is what he teaches his kids. Beyond what he lectures about in front of the room, Raju lives and shares a life that is a continuous introspection on how to make things better. If his relationship to and the success of his children are any indication, this approach has more than proven worthwhile. A man of great character and humility, that may have something important to teach people and organizations, to those who would “walk the road” with him.” – Mon Garcia, Managing Partner, Journeyman Consulting worked directly with Raju at Inner Sun
