Rishi is a very bright and motivated individual. I hired Rishi straight out of University as an intern. He quickly showed his ability to pick up new concepts and due to this we hired him as a full time online and customer acquisition executive at Huddle. His ability to analyze data and use his findings to solve business problems are exceptional. He enjoys new challenges and always approaches them with a positive attitude. Rishi was a wonderful employee and I would welcome the opportunity to work with this again!
Rishi was a pleasure to work with and a great influence on the culture at Huddle. His interpersonal skills were abundant and were most apparent whilst working to bridge the gap between marketing and sales. His passion to always do his best for the team and keep spirits high when dealing with problems was clear to see. I’d welcome the chance to work with him again
I worked with Rishi on organising Get Up, Start Up - a business funding and incubation event. We worked closely from conception right through to execution. Rishi's can-do attitude and entrepreneurialism throughout enabled us to overcome challenges that would otherwise have derailed the project. His first-class marketing skills and ability to build key partnerships enabled Get Up, Start Up to be the success it was. I hope I get the opportunity to work with Rishi many more times going forward.
Rishi was invited to take part in a panel discussion entitled "From Underdog to Mainstream – Young Entrepreneurs" as part of the National Student Enterprise Conference 2012, held at Aston University on the 18th and 19th February 2012. Rishi's passion and enthusiasm for his business, and for student enterprise as a whole, was evident throughout the panel.
