In today’s expert faculty member spotlight, we’re highlighting our resident education specialist, Raluca Vintilă!raluca

Raluca holds two bachelor’s degrees, one in International Relations and European Studies and the other in Public Administration, and two master’s degrees, the first being the Train the Trainers Professional Master’s, whilst the second is a Research Master’s in Administration and Public Management.

Complementing her educational background is a series of certification and training courses that she has attended over the years:

Raluca’s passion and drive for education began at an early point in her career, specifically throughout the course of 4 internships: The Green Project (AIESEC Vilnius), Europharm, Instituto Complutense de Ciencia de la Administracion, and Competition Council.

Having been noticed as a young educational prodigy, Raluca was given the opportunity to become a trainer for the Youth Academy NGO in Romania, a position she held for 4 years. Whilst training youth at the Academy, Raluca also took up the position of Business Research Analyst at The KPI Institute.

After a year in research, given her impressive education-related knowledge and expertise, she took up the role of Instructional Design & E-learning Coordinator. During her 3-year long journey as the Head of ID, she designed and delivered learning solutions and more than 12 educational programs related to business performance and performance management.

In addition to this, she coordinated the expansion of educational content by promoting the use of online training courses (she knew about online courses before it was 2020-cool!). Furthermore, Raluca conducted periodic learning needs assessments for key markets, and systematically developed curricula and training materials.

In 2017 and up until the present day, Raluca embarked on a new journey – that of a fully-fledged PM consultant, following her many years delivering certification courses, training sessions, and instructional design meetings.

Ms. Vintilă has been one of TKI’s most versatile faculty members. With over 1,300 hours of training, more than 3,500 clients, and upwards of 400 organizations serviced, Raluca has been an educational powerhouse, undertaking any opportunity that came her way, from workshops and training courses, to business simulations, webinars, and conferences.

As an educator and consultant, she has focused on 4 subjects: KPIs (research, documentation, analysis), Performance Management and Measurement (system design, implementation, monitoring), Audit Management (strategic planning, performance measurement, performance management, performance culture), and Project Management (planning, implementation, follow-up).

March 17th, 2021 Posted by E-learning 0 thoughts on “Teodora Gorski – Managing Director, PM Expert, Consultant, and Facilitator”

In today’s expert faculty member spotlight, we’re featuring one of our longest-standing members and facilitators, Teodora Gorski!teodora

Teodora holds two bachelor’s degrees, one in International Business Administration and the other in Law, alongside a Master’s Degree in Project Management and a Diploma in Entrepreneurship and Venture Creation.

Her professional knowledge is further strengthened by the numerous professionalization courses she has attended and certification titles she has earned:

  • The ATD Master Trainer Course and the Consulting Skills Certification;
  • The Romanian National Authority of Qualifications Trainer Accreditation and the HR Manager Certification;
  • The KPI Institute’s C-PI, C-KPI, C-EPM, or C-B courses.

She is currently in the process of obtaining her 9th certificate, as part of the GRI Sustainability Reporting Process Course, in the Netherlands.

Given her penchant for business administration, it was no coincidence that Teodora’s first professional undertaking was Vice President of AIESEC’s Sibiu branch – an international youth-run NGO, managing the branch’s financial team. Under her tutelage, AIESEC won the National Prize for Best Projects, received 3 funding grants, saw 75% growth, participated in 3 international conferences, and implemented 10 national projects.

That being said, much like juggling 2 bachelor’s degrees at the same time, Teodora decided to manage 2 organizations at the same time. During her time at AIESEC, she also handled the financial management and organizational development of Diamond SA, a fiber optic interconnection solutions company.

In 2013, she took a greater interest in the minutiae of managing performance, performance indicators, and data analysis, which lead her to join The KPI Institute’s team, as an Integrated Technology and Business Analyst. During her first year on-board, she documented and researched over 150 KPIs.

At the start of 2014, she took on a new role, as an Organizational Development Specialist, which solidified her HR-related acumen. By the time we reached October that year, Teodora became the Managing Director for the MENA region – which she is her current position, as a culmination of her efforts, prowess, and expertise.

As an educator, she has delivered over 120 courses and workshops in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, the USA, Romania, Germany, and Slovakia, training over 1,500 attendees.

Given Mrs. Gorski’s eclectic professional background, it comes as no surprise that her courses revolved around a wide array of topics, from organizational performance management, employee performance management, and employee appraisal, to KPIs, the BSC, and strategy and leadership.

Up to this point, Teodora has provided advisory services and facilitated training sessions to the following clients:

  • The United Arab Emirates: Abu Dhabi Retirement Pensions Fund, Dubai Electricity, and Water Authority, Dubai Ambulance, Dubai Municipality, Balmer Lawrie, Boehringer Ingelheim, Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation, Al Falah Holding, Lloyd Register
  • The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: King Fahad Specialist Hospital, Advanced Electronics Company, Takamol, Al Moosa Specialist Hospital, Al Kifah Holding, Tamweel Al Oula, HubTech, Al Quwa, Port State Control Authority, Saudi Information Technology Company, SATORP (Saudi Aramco Total Refining and Petrochemical)
  • Bahrain: Ministry of Education
  • Oman: Oman LNG
  • Qatar: Abdudllah Abdulghani & Bros
  • Brunei: Brunei Investment Authority
  • Malaysia: MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission

As one of our most senior and experienced facilitators, Mrs. Gorski is in charge of delivering a broad selection of courses, as follows:

  • Employee Performance Management Training Course
  • Certified KPI Professional
  • Certified KPI Practitioner
  • Certified Performance Improvement Professional
  • KPI Essentials

  • Certified Employee Performance Management Professional
  • Certified Performance Management Professional

Ahmed Alzahrani – Director, Faculty Member, and Facilitator

March 2nd, 2021 Posted by E-learning 0 thoughts on “Ahmed Alzahrani – Director, Faculty Member, and Facilitator”

Companies only stay competitive if they can refresh themselves somehow. Whether that means making a new strategy, creating a new product, developing new services, or hiring new blood, something has to breathe in fresh air.ahmed

For us at The KPI Institute, we went with the final option – we decided it was time to expand our team of facilitators, both internally and externally, ensuring we can handle the demand for online learning that surged last year. This article is the first of many to come, in which we give you a glimpse of our roster so that you know who our faculty members are when you join any of our courses.

Ahmed Alzahrani – EMBA, Assoc. CIPD, MPM, HRPM, CBP-HRM, CBP-TOT, PMP, C-EPMP, SHRM-SCP, C-KPI Practitioner

In today’s article, we’ll be spotlighting a member of our external faculty of collaborators.

A systems engineer bachelor (King Fahad University) and a business administration master (King Abdulaziz University), Ahmed began his specialization in HR management by undergoing the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development’s (CIPD) course, earning him the title of HR Practitioner.

However, his experience with management and KPIs began long before that, with his first professional forays, as a Quality Engineer Trainer at Siemens Ltd. and a Recruitment Manager at Saudi Binladin Group, where he amassed 11 years of experience in this role.

Once he began his studies, he became an HR Operations Manager, having held that position for 3 years, until he finished his master’s degree, which enabled him to advance as a Talent Acquisition Director in the same company, which is also his current position.

After picking up the mantle of Talent Acquisition Director, Ahmed’s foray into the world of HR unfolded in front of him, as over the course of 4 years, he attended over 60 HR-related courses.

Some of his most notable ones would be the following: Human Resources Project Manager – AAPM 2016, Master Project Manager – AAPM 2016, TOT – International Business Training Association (IBTA), HRM – International Business Training Association (IBTA), HR Practitioner – CIPD 2017, Certified KPI Professional – KPI Institute 2020, PMP – PMI 2020.

Having mastered his professional passion, it was only natural that Ahmed turned to teaching others the ways of his trade. As a result, he began facilitating courses and seminars on HR or employee performance-related topics. He has so far delivered over 30 courses with several providers, both on-site and online. Here are some of the most significant events he has either delivered or participated in:

  • KPIs in HR – King Abdulaziz University (Trainer)
  • HR Management – Princess Nora University (Trainer)
  • Advanced Skills in HR – Princess Nora University (Trainer)
  • KPIs in HR – Ministry of Health (Trainer)
  • Career Path and Succession Planning – Ministry of Health (Trainer)
  • Training Needs Analysis – Ministry of Health (Trainer)
  • HR Management – King Abdulaziz University (Trainer)
  • Job Analysis and Job Description – Ministry of Health (Trainer)
  • Work Consciously (Seminar) – King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (Speaker).
  • Tips for Successful Employment (Seminar) – Effat University (Speaker).
  • Work Consciously (Seminar) – Princess Nora University (Speaker).

For The KPI Institute, Ahmed Alzahrani will be one of the faculty members facilitating our C-KPI Professional course that is held in Arabic.

When he is not being a miracle worker in HR, our proficient talent acquisition director is also a writer in his free time, being an active contributor to the Maaal electronic newspaper.


If you want to see Ahmed in practice AND learn more about KPIs & how they interact with your organization’s strategy, goals, as well as how to get buy-in from your employees, sign up for any of our C-KPI Arabic-held courses and get ready for a one-of-a-kind learning experience!
