Anna Buber Farovich

Anna Buber Farovich

In a world of disruption, creative thinking is key to success. I honestly believe it’s not about what you ‘have’, or ‘don’t have’, it’s about how you use it. Never has this been more true for HR – we must challenge status quo practices and thinking to drive those critical performance gains.

Always focusing on the bigger picture, I’ve built a reputation of fearlessness. Embracing complexity and blue-sky thinking, I’ve always thrived in environments that need both vision and action. From early days in Marvell in Israel, where I guided the organisation in the development of a ground-up L&D infrastructure, to my most recent journey with Google providing strategic direction to the constant evolution and development of a fit-for-purpose OD structure for APAC, I have both the courage to think ‘big’ and the grit to ‘make it happen’.

In my case, it’s really not a cliché to say I love what I do. I’m deeply committed to driving performance gains in a super competitive market, and I see it as my role to partner with, coach, challenge and influence leaders across APAC to build capability, capacity and productivity. My approach is to take Organisation Development as a practice out of operations, helping organisations and their leaders to see it as a critical part of business strategy and a top executive priority. In doing so, I have supported some critical transitions in organisational thinking, building leadership bench strength in a way that contributes millions of dollars to the bottom line.

I’m an active networker and welcome connections from like minded individuals across LinkedIn.

Specialities: Organisational Development, Strategic Consulting, Executive Coaching, Leadership Development, Team Dynamics, HR Business Partner, People & Culture, Advocate & Influencer.
