  • The sign language session was very interactive and effective. It's great to see all our employees fully engaging themselves in Sign Language. We are in the process of hiring persons with disabilities and this has given us the confidence to hire persons with hearing impairment.

  • Thank you so much for providing such an interesting session which will help us in interacting with the deaf community. I enjoyed learning sign language and found it unique and interesting.
