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.
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.
