Here are some of his recent testimonials:

“I was recommended to Darmain professionally about 5 years ago. One thing you can be certain of is his dedication to delivery. Whether it is to develop a strategy, to advise or to train, he is able to see your big picture needs and gives you tangible solutions to use.” 

Gary Chua, CEO, Smart Financing  

“Western Digital engaged Darmain and his team for an urgent and important analysis project which it had never attempted before. Accommodating our tight timeline he produced a detailed report which was presented to the MD and other members. We were thoroughly impressed. There were answers to questions we didn’t even think to ask. His advice was pivotal in making our final decision” 

Sivashanker Tambiah, Regional Director, Western Digital      

“Knowing a topic and being able to transfer that knowledge are 2 very different things… Darmain has both in abundance. It’s absolutely critical for a business like mine to have a data privacy consultant that is forward thinking and pragmatic at the same time. He has been important for our growth.” 

Sharma Lachu, CEO, Accendo HR

“Darmain is my go to consultant for all things technology law related. He has a keen understanding of these emerging areas, particularly in data privacy law. I would highly recommend him as a consultant, speaker or trainer.”
