Tony Ragoonanan has spent the last 15 years of his life helping individuals, teams and businesses to align behaviours, productivity and outcomes. As the Founder of V-Formation Training and Development, he specializes in Organizational Behaviour and providing organizations with the performance management frameworks that align behaviours and goals, create the right organizational culture and maximize capability.
He knows there is no single approach that works for everyone, so he continues to educate himself on the latest techniques to match international standards of performance management as well as the processes and type of learning experiences that drive productivity and outcomes.
