Message from Co-Founder and CEO

Welcome to Global APD


Thank you for your interest in Global APD. Whether you are already our partner/client, or a potential partner/client, I encourage you to further explore our website to learn more about us and to contact us if you have questions or would like additional information regarding a particular area.

In response to the various HR challenges that companies/workplaces encounter, we provide our clients with HR development programs tailored to each level of employment starting from newly hired employees to top management.


Talent success is our highest priority – we offer a strong selection of training and professional development programs reflecting today’s high-demand fields.

We are proud that our clients gain knowledge and skills that prepare them to live and work in a multicultural, global world.


Development of human resources is essential for any organization that would like to be dynamic and growth-oriented. Unlike other resources, human resources have rather unlimited potential capabilities. The potential can be used only by creating a climate that can continuously identify, bring to surface, nurture and use the capabilities of people. It is a role of management to ensure that the organization and its people acquire the competencies and knowledge it needs through education, training and development activities.


Human resource is needed to be developed as per the change in external/internal environment of the organization. Hence, our HRD services will help to adapt such changes through the development of existing human resource in terms of skills and knowledge. Global APD will assist your organization to ensure that at all levels, the human resource development strategy is aligned with broader strategic imperatives, and that sufficient emphasis is placed on the human resource development function.


The main focus for us is to create the framework for helping employees develop their personal and organizational skills, knowledge, and abilities, including such opportunities as employee training, employee career development, performance management and development, coaching, mentoring, succession planning, key employee identification, and organizational development.


With other words, the focus of Global APD is on developing the most superior workforce so that the organization and individual employees can accomplish their work goals in service to customers.
