Participant experience from recent UXD 2day workshop: "An exceptional teacher. I would credit Nandhakumar in helping me start my foray into UX during the initial days when I was in search of a good mentor. His workshops are detailed and practical. His ways of communicating an idea are very contextual and he makes sure you get it, else you can just keep asking him and he would keep explaining until you get it :D I would recommend founders, project managers and especially UI/UX designers or wannabes to attend his sessions to upskill your UX process or knowledge."
