Personal Profile:

Saurabh Anand is an experienced business management professional, trainer and second generation entrepreneur with expertise in technology, strategy, analytics, business management and learning and development. He has lived and worked in India, Singapore, Philippines, Germany, UAE and USA and has travelled extensively in Asia, Europe and USA which has helped him develop excellent cross-cultural skills and sensitivities. As a son of two of the pioneers of training in India, Saurabh has grown up steeped in management and training principles.

Saurabh is a Distinction Engineering Graduate from the University of Mysore, India and a Distinction MBA Graduate from the Asian Institute of Management, Manila, Philippines. He has also been an exchange student at the Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth, New Hampshire, USA.


Professional Profile:

Saurabh started his professional career in 2000 with i-flex Solutions (now Oracle Financial Services) as a technology consultant in its Banking Products Division. He was hand-picked to manage and lead implementations and provide user training for high profile projects in Singapore and Germany.

After graduating with an MBA in 2006, Saurabh worked as a consultant with Pannell Kerr Forster (PKF) in Singapore in strategy consulting for large companies and government agencies, including the People’s Association. He consulted on feasibility studies, financial valuations, exchange listing criteria and internal audits for clients in South East Asia and the Middle East.

Saurabh then joined RedPill Solutions Pte. Ltd. (acquired by IBM in 2009) in Singapore and did strategy and analytics consulting for clients in South East Asia and the Middle East. His projects included customer data analytics, channel partner engagement, rebranding strategy and simulation.

In June 2009, Saurabh founded Accord Business Solutions Pte. Ltd. in Singapore as part of the reinvention journey of a 26-year old family company. Accord offers learning and development solutions to corporates and educational institutions and he has taken over as the Managing Director from 1st June 2011. He is responsible for the sustained reinvention of Accord, expanding its business lines and developing Accord’s business in the international market.

His recent client engagements include structuring an ESOP plan for a 60-member company in Singapore and consulting on and facilitating strategy planning interventions for leading MNCs in Singapore and India. He regularly facilitates various workshops on soft skills, business skills and financial skills for clients in India and Singapore. In addition he also designs customized learning interventions for clients, which include classroom, outbound and eLearning interventions.


Training Profile:

From internal teams to customer teams, training and facilitation has been an integral part of Saurabh’s professional career in all his roles. Since joining Accord, he has become a professional trainer and regularly facilitates programs on soft skills, business skills and financial skills. His rich and varied experience combined with excellent facilitation skills make his workshops fun, engaging and insightful. He is equally comfortable with technical and quantitative topics as with non-technical ones.

Saurabh’s business and finance workshops are very popular as participants learn not only the basic concepts of finance with clarity, but also understand their relevance in meeting business objectives. Combining the art and science of communication with an unconventional but impactful approach to presentation design, Saurabh has also created a unique presentation design workshop that is much sought after in the industry today.

Saurabh has an Advanced Certificate in Training and Assessment (ACTA) qualification. He also serves as an executive committee member of the Association of Professional Trainers, Singapore and as an empaneled trainer of the Civil Service College, Singapore.
