Testimonials.

 

 
 
It is one of the great pleasures of my professional life to have worked with and learned from Heyokha. They are some of the biggest thinkers I’ve ever known, and the most agile too – able to not only traverse the strategic and the practical, the human and the commercial, but to find ways to bring them together for the betterment of the world and the business he’s tasked with growing. Their track record speaks for itself, but I’ll say the things they are too humble to put forward themselves: Heyokha are at once rock stars and at once some of the kindest and most mindful people ever to cross my path.

Jagatjoti is very passionate, creative, caring, and talented. He is an inspiration to work with, a great communicator, and does an exceptional job of always keeping the “big picture” in mind. Jagatjoti is a real asset to a team and someone you can always count on to bring value to any discussion. His intuitive knowledge of business is key, yet he always mixes his instincts with market trends and data in order to balance his art with science. Jagatjoti is an excellent manager of people and gets the most out of all of his employees and co-workers. He challenges and supports his team to bring out their absolute best.

In my 22 years in the recruiting industry I’ve had the opportunity to speak with hundreds of highly-talented senior executives and, without question, Jagatjoti is in a class by himself. Since our first meeting in 2003, time and time again, he has impressed me as a gifted and talented, inspired, visionary savant with a pragmatic, down-to-earth and rational approach to the business decision making process. Last, but not least, Jagatjoti is among the most principled and high-minded individuals that I have ever had the distinct pleasure to call a business colleague and friend.

Heyokha is a trusted agency with a variety of skills. Their strength comes from an overall understanding of how to take products from concept to cart in the marketplace and do it quickly, efficiently, and under budget. I have also been impressed with their practical creativity. Their dedicated leadership as very high expectations of themselves and their team to get the job done with excellence. My experience with Heyokha was in a start up where I felt they where very effective. I highly recommend Heyokha in a consulting capacity, or to fill a sales/marketing senior/executive role.

Jagatjoti is a man of integrity and honor. He is a strategic thinker and an incredible listener. I had the pleasure of working alongside him as his business partner at ALTAR Herbal Martini for nearly four years. I was always in awe of Jagatjoti’s ability to motivate people and elevate their spirit. He has a unique ability to thoughtfully tap into the core of everyone he works with and guide their professional interests to their fullest capacity. He does this with care, honesty and integrity. He is a thought leader and someone who is truly dedicated to elevating and inspiring his team to be their best. Any company would be lucky to have Jagatjoti on their team, and any employee would be lucky to work by his side.
