Hari was my Project Management Guru for the PMP Training conducted through Astrowix. He was able to connect well with all of us during the sessions and was a source of inspiration for me to complete my PMP exams. He is an SME in Project Management and his technique of training ensured that both experienced and inexperienced Project Managers understand the concepts thoroughly. A humble person and soft spoken, he not only teaches but strives to learn from his students.

Hari means Happy thoughts.

I have attended a PMP session conducted by Hari. It was quite interesting and really happy thoughts for every one in the session.

I rarely see few person who makes any teaching session more interesting and he is one of them.

I could able to score 75% in the Final PMP simulation exam, by just listening to him for 4 days, I belive I would have scored more than 90% If i concentrated well. All thanks goes to Hari

Muthukumar Arunachalam

Manager at Wipro Consulting Services

Very enthusiastic and deeply committed, PMP contact session from Hari was excellent and highly satisfactory.

He delivers down to earth techniques to digest the whole PMBOK concepts, I still remember the story lines and role plays for each of knowledge areas and the highlight was Earned Value Management topic, which invokes thought process for better understanding and right interpretation of PMBOK concepts.

All the best Hari and wish you to bring more PMPs and your service to project management community…

Hari is the great trainer, a great teacher & a very nice person with a very good knowlege of his subject.

Suraj Semwal

IT Governance & Compliance

We hired AstroWix for our PMP training in Uninor. It was the first day and the earlier trainer completely collapsed as he failed to connect with a strong group of 25 professionals to provide a structural & organized start to the training, which is actually a key for any trainer.
We asked AstroWix to change the trainer immediately and hence on 2nd day Hari was standing in the training room to take on the challenge. Initially we all were like ….ok let’s see who is this guy and how he manages this big group. Believe me within one hour everybody was just listing to Hari. The way he carried out the program and made very easy to understand & apply in our day to day professional life scenarios, was excellent. His innovative approach and ability to connect with each professional attendee, coming from different work experience and demographic backgrounds, is amazing and beyond comparison. He is a thorough gentleman and a true professional with complete command on the subject. I strongly recommend him for any kind of ‘Project Management’ training/consulting.
I wish him all the best !!

Hari was always cheerful and ready to take any responsibility. A very systematic person who used to go into detail and had a very good understanding of his role and responsibilities.

Karthikeyan Natarajan, PMP, PMI-ACP

Sr. Analyst Apps Prog @ Bank of America

I have attended the PMP workshop conducted by Hari as a part of career management programs arranged by my organization; I am very much thankful and fortunate few to attend Hari’ s PMP training program, that itself helped myself (and also 3 more of my colleagues) to clear PMP certification right away with much ease. It’s Hari’ s unique teaching style of preparing PMP candidates that is very much perceivable only those who actually attended it; I am still remembering how he has adopted the traditional “Gurukul” way of coaching to remember all 42 processes in PMP without having to refer PMBoK.

Not only he makes understand the concepts very clearly, but also he will suggest easy examples from real-time that will make you appreciate the concept that you are learning. There are lots of examples and workouts that he handles during the program, role plays and memorizing techniques that will aid even a beginner in project management to form a strong foundation in his career.

I hereby recommend Hari for his extraordinary training capabilities with PMP and project management related trainings, and wish him a very long and successful career ahead

I have been Hari’s colleague in the past (2009-10) when he was handling the volunteer development portfolio for the chapter. I found him to be consistently determined and passionate, tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile.

Besides being a joy to work with, Hari is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. He has successfully worked on the development of the volunteer development handbook and orientation program that has resulted in improved processes for the portfolio.

Apart from being an asset to the chapter volunteer development portfolio, Hari was also extraordinarily helpful in other areas of the Chapter.
