I enjoyed meeting you in Kansas City. Your presentation was outstanding. You are doing a great service to NRIs in USA. Based on your suggestion, I did file a complaint with PMO’s website that you featured in your presentation 2 days ago. I was checking the progress and was very impressed with the action taken by PMO’s office.

Giving so much for one’s country with nothing in return and being so committed to doing the right thing, is truly commendable.

Just thought to let you know that I have heard many positive comments about your presentation from all parts of USA. You did an outstanding job of delivering current status of India and progress being made. Your patriotism, pride and professionalism were apparent. You should justifiably be awarded one of the highest recognition. I had been in touch with few people who attended your presentation and just like other parts of USA thinking about investing in India Your ‘Mentor of the Road’ program has turned into a ‘Mentor of patriotism”. It was indeed a privilege to meet you.

Thank you Jagat,
It was a great turnout for your mentor on road USA talk. I have received plenty of positive feedback in the last couple of days since your presentation. You even convinced one of our strongest clients to reconsider India. Again, a job well done.

It was an amazing journey that you went over and enjoyed the discussion and depth of your knowledge and working value in creating the relationships with your hands-on methodology. You are living what you see and feel, that is a lesson learned.

Jonathan A. Wiesman

On behalf of the US Commercial Service, I wanted to thank you for the presentation you gave yesterday at our Business with India Roadshow event, as well as for the time and advice you gave in the roundtable event that followed. I am confident that the local business leaders and Temple University students in attendance found it informative and gained valuable insight regarding the overall Indian market and economy. We appreciate both yours and the US India Importers Council’s contributions to the US Commercial Service’s efforts in promoting trade with India, and we look forward to collaborating with you again in the future. Thank you very much.

It was a total pleasure having you at our EDC offices. Thank you for the detail presentation. I will keep you in the loop as I adventure to set up a Trade mission trip to India in 2018. I hope to work with you in the future. Again, thank you for the beautiful hand-made gift. Hope you let me know when you come back to Kansas City to welcome you and your wife again.

Thanks, and have a great rest of your week.

Thank you very much for this wonderful surprise. This could not have come at a more perfect time! Thank you very much Etihad Airways

Elizabeth Anderson-Cadogan

CEO, Cadogan& Associates, LLC Washington DC.

Thank you so much. I was thrilled to receive the phone call for Mr. Shah. It was such wonderful news after spending all day in the ER! As much as I would love to use it for vacation with a friend, I will likely turn this into a business trip with a colleague as an expression of appreciation for the efforts of Mr. Shah to build corporate partnerships between US and Indian organizations. Our nonprofit hospital has very little funding for international Business development travel since we are still nascent in our program development. Had it not been for this prize, my budget would not have allowed a trip to India. I’m so very grateful for this gift on the part of Etihad Airways.

Pamela Frank

Director of International Services, Children's Mercy Hospital Kansas City.

I was at today’s presentation at the Michigan Women’s Foundation and I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing your insight and good luck with the last few stops on your journey!

Alvin K. Liow

International Trade Assistant, Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City.

Congratulations Jagat! With all of my years in international trade, it is my belief that with mentor on road USA, you single handedly created more goodwill, awareness and knowledge about doing business in India than any entity, group or person. Your country should be proud of your work. At the risk of building your ego too much, we have not seen such a program for any country. We enjoyed hosting you and following you on Facebook and will continue to do so

Jim Krzywicki

Director, World Trade Centre, Boston.

Thank you Jagat. We greatly enjoyed hosting you and I ran into someone last week that was at your briefing and they again commented what a great program and speaker we had in you. So thank you for leaving such a great impression on the business community here.

Jagat is a one-man board for Ahmedabad and state of Gujarat. While I was in his city, Jagat helped me meet with several important business and academic contacts, showed me his city and introduced me to some amazing local restaurants and sights. In addition to the above extraordinary generosity, Jagat is also an amazing person with a dozen amazing local and international business market research initiatives, each with a significant social element. He’s helping citizens in Africa create manufacturing, elderly people find fulfilling work, he’s the Manitoba trade representative in Gujarat, works for closer Global-India ties and is generally an amazingly active fellow. I recommend his expertise to anyone with any International business questions.

Jagat is truly global man, Excellent In Global Contacts & research and Very Helpful for Indian Industries.

Ñitish S. Nàth. Mumbai Area, India

Business Head-CE & HA

JagatBhai, as I would like to call him, has been very closely associated with UNIDO and we all requested his support for turning around the placid, demotivated industry associations that we always witnessed in the initial years in a cluster. Jagat never let us down. He came, motivated them and like a magician took them onto a path of better marketing strategies, especially exports and international links. His unique ability to explain most complicated management principles to the clients in the easiest manner, his great sense of humour and his tremendous Indian & Global links which he put to good use for the sake of the business association members, always brought in results faster than expected and more than expected. 
More than a colleague, he is a great human being, a very good friend with a big heart and someone you start liking the moment you meet for the first time..

Ashwini Saxena, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Chief Operations Officer at JSW Foundation

Jagat, it was fun working with you and your team on the eGOV research project with SMEs. When is that book on SMEs coming out? I would be interested in your thoughts on the small business world.

Ritobaan Roy, London, United Kingdom

Senior Evaluation Manager at Coffey International Ltd

Jagat Shah and his team played a critical market research & implementation role in supporting OTF Group’s efforts to help the Afghan private sector reengage with global markets. Jagat initially worked with OTF in leading a trade delegation to the Domotex fair in Germany. This was a first for Afghanistan. It is now a regular feature on the Afghan carpet sector’s business calendar. 

Based on this experience, OTF asked Global Network to develop similar programs for other of Afghanistan’s leading export sectors. These initiatives formed the foundations for a deeper business relationship between OTF and Global network, which has lead to the formation of a partnership between the two firms to support entrepreneurship among SMEs in India and, hopefully, beyond.

He and his market research team has instant solutions with committed results for any sort of requirements.

I have worked with Jagat for over a year now and his positive energy level is very high which he used very creatively. He not just motivates his team but also his clients with enthusiastic approach he has toward the solutions. He understands the Small and Medium business (SMB) better than anyone else. His reputation and connect with the customers and partner is par excellence and he can guide the team and customers toward excellent results. He brings with him excellent skill for creating new business which is visible in his activity every day. I would recommend him for any time.

During my 20 years + experience in International Trade, we have worked with several trade consultants in India and other countries, but one man that stands on number one spot for past 10 years has been Dr. Jagat Shah, who delivered the most. As Member of Provincial Parliament of Manitoba (Canada) I was responsible for International Trade, Dr. Jagat Shah and his team provided us excellent services delivered as we asked for.
