What Our Clients Say


UC’s 25th Anniversary (2019) with Ustad Shujaat Khan

In 2019, UC turned 25, with a celebratory event at the Trident BKC, Mumbai.

We hope you enjoy the vignettes of Ustad Shujaat Khan’s captivating Sitar performance that evening. We thank our Clients, Business Associates, Advisory Board, Alumni, Employees, Families and Friends, for encouraging UC over 25 years so that we could experience this moment a quarter of a century after our birth in 1994.

Celebrations at UC

In India, our multicultural environment defines us. At UC, we take every opportunity to celebrate our festivals with great fun and enthusiasm. Welcoming our employees or celebrating our achievements, we come together from various client locations to host the occasion.

UC’s Annual Cricket Game

For the past two decades, UC has frequently been holding a CEO Cricket game at the Police Gymkhana in Mumbai. We invite our clients, business associates and their families to participate in a game of cricket played under flood-lights.

The event has become widely popular and well attended. We have also been honoured with the presence of Sir Garfield Sobers (Former West Indies Cricketer) and Harsha Bhogle (Indian Cricket Commentator).
