Presentation matters. And nobody understands this better than Amrita. She brings in her skill and love for wrapping gifts creatively into other aspects of her life as well—to training professionals. She unravels the most complex concepts and re-packages them into simple, yet elegantly-crafted details that are easy to comprehend and retain. She leverages this strength as she designs, customizes, and delivers Accord’s analytics workshops for corporate clients.
Amrita is a Director and expert facilitator at Accord, with close to 20 years of industry experience in finance, and consulting with organizations like PwC.
Over the years, in her capacity as a trainer, Amrita has developed and delivered courses on data analytics, project finance and risk and compliance in Singapore and in Myanmar. Since 2018, she has been an empaneled trainer for analytics workshops at the Civil Service College (CSC), where she conducts public run workshops on analytics and data visualization, and in-house workshops for agencies like IRAS and MHA.
In May 2020, the CSC selected Amrita to brief 70+ members of the training community of the civil service to allay their concerns about technical topics like data analytics being delivered virtually. The presentation was well-received, and Amrita is scheduled to deliver analytics workshops at CSC virtually till face-to-face classes resume.
At Accord, Amrita has been the support facilitator for the ‘Data Analytics – Core Concepts and Techniques’ workshop at MAS since March 2020, including its virtual runs since May 2020. She continues to offer her unique insights into creating and delivering our courses.
