"I highly recommend Roshini Rajkumar for a Board of Director position. She thinks around the corners and provides wise counsel. She is a trusted advisor and has been instrumental in my professional growth. She brings tremendous value in terms of crisis management communications, organizational design, and human capital management during my navigation through the current Supply Chain Crisis."

Scott Lambert

Minnesota Auto Dealers Association

“I brought Roshini to my national conference to do her Own Your WOW!™ interactive keynote. She lit up a room of 150 association executives and their business partners from around the United States and Canada. She pushed people to think about themselves and their expertise in the world but did it in a very fun and engaging way. She was the buzz of the entire meeting.”

Rebecca Hoeft

Chief Brand Officer
Sunrise Banks

"Roshini is a brilliant executive communications professional. In December 2020 and June 2021, she managed and delivered Parts 1 and 2 of a Courageous Conversations equity series in a town hall format for Sunrise Banks. It was a personal relief to have Roshini execute the town halls from the preparation of the panel members to the on-camera moderating of the live event. Her foresight and expert experience was made evident by the success of these events. Roshini is a joy to work with and always makes an extra effort to ensure the end product is successful."

Darin Lynch

Founder and Chief Liberation Officer
Irish Titan

"Roshini walked Irish Titan through one of her Courageous Conversations sessions, much to our benefit. The team learned how to approach interactions with confidence and purpose, and how to do so in a framework that can be used repeatedly. The virtual session was interactive, energetic and will help Irish Titan be more effective going forward."

Suzanne Ruff

The Reluctant Donor

"Communicate That! has been my guide as I promote my book, The Reluctant Donor, because there was a time you could call me the reluctant speaker. Roshini helped me realize my message is more important than my nervous energy. That insight helped me prepare better, become a better expert and, more importantly, have fun while I do it. I follow her advice to the letter."

"For more than six years, I have turned to Roshini Rajkumar as a regular contributor on my Web and radio shows for perspective on messaging, crisis leadership, and political analysis. Roshini's extraordinary versatility, sincere thoughtfulness, and incisive insights provide a rich tapestry of top-notch content for my programs. I enthusiastically recommend her as a commentator!"

"Being a regular guest on her radio show and consulting her as a media resource, I can attest to her first-class talent and strategic mind. Roshini is a true media expert."

Mary Angela Baker

Founding Director Center for Extended and Lifelong Learning

"Roshini consistently delivers high-quality presentations that are substantive and accessible. Her IAP™ Formula provides the model to move content into action. She connects across generations. Whether she is delivering a keynote in a packed ballroom or a seminar in a classroom, Roshini’s professionalism and executive presence combined with her real-world experience ensure that every communication moment is a WOW!"

Dr Courtney Baechler

Medical Director
Emerging Science Centers

"Roshini was tremendously helpful as a media coach! Her insider experience and connections have been extremely helpful. Her tips were practical and very specific to small details that made a world of difference in my overall delivery and communication.  As a physician, this guidance was productive and needed to best deliver science in a way that makes sense to viewers."

Barb Larson Taylor

Senior Director of Institutional Events
Gustavus Adolphus College
Office of Marketing and Communication

"For our event, we were bringing in a big name guest for a public interview. We knew hiring a professional was the best way to ensure that both the guest and the audience would have the best experience. Roshini was a logical choice and did a fantastic job. She listened to us to understand our vision for the interview and did her homework on the guest and the topics. With her warm and professional style, she makes it look easy yet we have all experienced enough bad emcees, moderators, or interviewers to know it is a special talent to do it well. As the event planner, having her on stage allowed me to relax knowing that she was going to deliver a top of the line event."

Jeff Anderson

EVP & Chief Communications Officer
Minnesota Vikings

"With the IAP™ formula in mind, I no longer go into a media interview without first analyzing my intent and my audience(s). For me, the key is to remember that every interview is unique, even if there are several surrounding the same topic. By following the IAP™ formula, I focus on a particular audience and then am able to tailor a strong message and an effective delivery."

Mike Ryan

Northern Division
Ryan Companies

"My experiences with Roshini have surpassed every expectation I had. She is absolutely the best in the business when it comes to taking a raw team that has not presented together and transforming them into a polished, professional team that exudes confidence and passion. She brings out the best in everyone's presentation ability in a short time frame. She is our go-to coach for presentations."

Kathy Wetzel

“Roshini had sharp commentary about the NBA’s Donald Sterling mega-scandal. She´s articulate, informed and has great anecdotes to illustrate effective damage control once a media disaster hits page one and goes viral. Her advice may save you a few hundred million dollars!”

Joe Mayer

VP of Government Video Sales – Avigilon

"Roshini's approach and IAP structure can be applied to any situation, presentation or problem that needs your attention! Her experience and coaching with the IAP formula helped me find the confidence and message that hit home for things ranging from ops review presentations to tough personnel conversations. Her perspective gave me an advantage to get my message across, while balancing the litany of agendas in my audience."

Katherine Hubbard

Madigan, Dahl & Harlan Law Firm

"Roshini's Own Your WOW!™ program was entertaining and informative, a one-two punch that does not always occur in a seminar setting. She helped our legal association audience recognize the positive value of self-awareness about how we present ourselves to others, while simultaneously providing insights on how to recognize our value and our expertise."

Gail Nosek

“Roshini was such a pleasure to work with as our conference emcee! As a planner, the pre-planning is so important and having an emcee that responds promptly, professionally, and is flexible is so important. Roshini was all of those.

"Roshini’s creative and interactive approach to moderating had us engaging and connecting during the entire program. From the onset, Roshini assisted us in designing the format of our 2014 Economic Outlook event in a way that was comfortable for the panelists yet easy for guests to understand. Roshini’s knowledge of business, the state, and economic development issues was clearly evident and helped navigate a complex set of information. We look forward to working with Roshini in the future."

"Three words for Roshini Rajkumar as an emcee: Professional, Poised, Smooth. Her pre-event consultations were invaluable to help create a memorable Hall of Fame induction ceremony. She managed the pacing of the event effectively. Her natural script delivery made 25 distinguished honorees feel special. Roshini would be an asset to any organizer who wants a truly professional emcee.”
