Trusha Desai’s child was a hard working, model student and so it was a pleasure to have the mother come in to help. She was a supportive parent who was clearly involved with her child’s schooling in a positive way, who encouraged the taking on of project work. It was delightful to see her child’s eagerness to share the learning with mom.

Trusha was hired to perform certain accounting functions, and to review the company's employee tax arrangements. She performed these functions in a personable, efficient manner, with due respect for commercial priorities. The only reason that Trusha will not be working with our company for a longer time is that the Vancouver office will be closing.

I was a Venue Manager at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics responsible for University of British Columbia and Trusha Desai was GSS Supervisor. In this role I observed Trusha consistently maintaining high levels of professionalism, being very effective and establishing herself as a hardworking, conscientious and effective supervisor. She demonstrated leadership in challenging situations and maturity when under stress. Trusha exhibited initiative on many occasions and supported her team well. She was an excellent member of our team and a reliable and caring employee.

Games Screening Supervisors have a demanding role in the Olympic Games and their training comprises a lot of information and detail and the best of the Supervisors pick up and retain that information quickly. Trusha Desai was one of the better students and was easily identified as Supervisor material. Her previous background contributed to that. If all students were as easy to teach as Trusha my job would be an easy one.
~ Stephen Peszel, Formerly Contemporary Security Canada
Trusha Pandit compiled table after table and drafted many of the complex figures that appear in the book. She (lived) next door and often volunteered help at all sorts of odd hours, when I was frantic about some tricky piece of analysis.

As the Venue Manager throughout the 2010 Olympic games, I had daily contact with Trusha Desai and had the opportunity to observe her work firsthand. She retained and disseminated information from briefings and maintained high standards of working practises. Trusha would be an asset to any organisation hiring her.
