I have always strived to give my best, hoping to leave a lasting impact on this wonderful organisation. As I step into the next chapter of my professional journey, I carry with me not just skills and experiences, but memories and bonds that will last a lifetime. Liquid has been more than just a workplace; it has been a part of who I am,” he wrote.

Thank you, everyone, for being a part of my journey at Liquid Intelligent Technologies. Your support, friendship, and collaboration have meant the world to me. As I bid farewell, I do so with a heart full of gratitude and optimism,” Trishen added.
