Prabu Naidu’s 19 years of MNC experience (1980-1999) with Philips, AT&T and Compaq spanned diverse functions in Engineering, Materials, Project Management, TQM, HRD, Managing Change and Supply Chain Re-Engineering – these build a robust foundation for his current coaching, training, facilitation and consulting work in organisational development.

Currently he is on the Board of INIFAC to oversee development of facilitation in Asia (2013-onwards). He is an INIFAC Certified Master Facilitator (CMF).
