WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAID...

TBD Participant , R1 2022, WG'25

I was part of two mock TBDs moderated by Niketa, and each one helped level up my preparation. She keenly observed the small mistakes I made during the mock TBDs and helped me understand why those were mistakes. She did a great job in organizing a diverse group for the mock TBDs, which closely stimulated the real one. The individual feedback I received at the end focused on the corrective actions, and I successfully applied them during my actual TBD.

TBD Participant, WG'25

During my prep I did a lot of mocks (both P2P and expert facilitated) but I can say without a doubt that the mocks I did with Niketa were gamechanger.Niketa’s candid 1:1 feedback helped me identify my blind spots and also understand the true intent of a TBD. She constantly emphasised that instead of thinking of it as an interview, think of it as you genuinely coming together with peers to plan a trip and therefore go in to have a rich and cordial discussion.
