Ashutosh Sheshabalaya offers informative, well-presented talks on globalization and trends, using India as a case study. He provides thought-provoking insights so that we can better understand global opportunities. There doesn’t appear to be a topic he doesn’t understand in depth! You’d have to get up very early to catch him out – we certainly haven’t managed to!"

"Your presentation was, as usual, brilliant, witty, imaginative and factually-rich (and) ... the response from the participants has been unanimously positive. The content of the Think Tank was much appreciated, as was the open atmosphere in the event, with all the questions, answers and discussions. We look forward to welcoming you back to Wolfsberg sometime soon!"

"Arguing with Mr. Sheshabalaya on any point supported by quantitative evidence would be very difficult since he provides more than a sufficient amount of credible references to back his position. He
appears to be one of the definitive researchers regarding the Indian economy based on this work and his previous one.... Mr. Sheshabalaya’s policy recommendations are rooted in an emancipated view of the world
economy and societies as a large ecosystem requiring strategy and a quid pro quo for sustenance in the long-term."
Ashutosh is one of the most astute observers of India that I know of. His book, "Rising Elephant" is a must-read for any serious observer of India's development. Ashutosh's specialises in EU-India relations (and more broadly EU-Asia relations) and his expertise in this area is second to none. I have tremendous respect and regard for his analysis and I have always enjoyed reading his forthright and evidence-backed views on diverse topics….

Sheshabalaya ... sets out a rich
panorama of so many things going on in Indian
Hi-Tech and Industrial development, that you
have almost certainly NOT seen or understood....
Much in the world is changing. We read a lot
about China - and rightly so. But "The
Rising Elephant" of India is a big beast
too - with which we may enjoy "co-opetition"
- or we may find ourselves in some danger of
being trampled underfoot ! "When China
Awakes, it will Shake The World" said
Napoleon Bonaparte all those years ago. But
The Elephant is Rising - and Elephants are not
small creatures……..food for thought…..

Ashutosh seems to have taken the best from Western and Indian cultures. His deep insight toward India, globalisation, business or technology are impressive. And always helpful.

It is never enough to say that the success

for which I express my thankful

... for your contribution to the
conference. It was very stimulating and
hopefully helps people to rethink their image
of the world.

think the imaginary draft of Mittal's speech
by Ashutosh Sheshabalaya is brilliant. It
really cuts deep some raw issues in
