Retired CIO Ford Foundation
Shaku: «You explained the need for delivering "actionable" information in organizations to "the right people, at the right time and at a right cost" . Your dashboard concept is a simple, but a very powerful one to do just that. You, among others, defined the type of dashboards (strategic, tactical and operational) for different type of people in organizations, their components, issues and pitfalls.
People who did not attend your session will be able to read about it , but what they truly missed is your colorful delivery and the way you maintained the audience attention.»

Shaku: «Both my manager and I attended the dashboard seminar to hear Shaku speak. Shaku's speaking is dynamic and engaging as she has the ability to make complex ideas understandable with her combination of knowledge, insight and humor. Shaku has uniquely turned her concept of the dashboard into function which ultimately translates into profit for organizations. She has a global point of view which is important, as she points out, in our multicultural world, to pay particular attention to your customer's needs and familiarities. I admire her tremendously.»

Shaku: «Thanks for the wonderful presentation you gave yesterday in New York. It was very informative and you are certainly an excellent presenter. I loved the way you kept everyone engaged and rephrased/corrected peoples questions so everyone could hear/understand them.
I'm taking you up on your offer to get a copy of the presentation. No rush but would like to have it for my "Best Practices" folder I keep.»

Shaku: «I really enjoyed your presentation 'How's Business? Ask Your Dashboard!'
I found it very well organized and presented dynamically with memorable real-life examples.
You explained why measuring and monitoring KPIs is important for successful business,
how decisions should be made on which measurements are most important for business to know
and the role of dashboards in providing this information. I found particularly informative
your presentation of different types of users whose business needs are served by different types
of dashboards that are built on different layers of data.
Again, thanks a lot - it was very informative and well-structured presentation.»

Shaku: «I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation yesterday "Designing and Implementing Effective Dashboards." In fact I ordered your book on Amazon when I got home last night (it's worth having a hard copy of this one, not a Kindle edition) and I'll be looking for your new book.
Could you please send a copy of the presentation slides? There was a lot of concentrated information that I wanted to bring back.»
