About Nurdanpinar Solutions for Human Performance

Nurdan Tokoz has developed a reputation for shining a light on individuals within high-performance teams and helping them grow in their careers as they exceed performance expectations.

As a Human Performance Consultant, with degrees in both industrial engineering and adult education, Nurdan excels at finding sustainable solutions with a systematic and holistic approach to improving human performance.

Nurdan emigrated from Istanbul, Turkey in 2001, and began working within large Canadian corporations as a Learning & Development professional. She became genuinely frustrated with the revolving cycle of human performance issues being treated with training programs before identifying the root cause of the real problem. Too often, the training was blamed because the issue still existed, and so another training program would be delivered.


In 2018, Nurdan launched Nurdanpinar Solutions for Human Performance, a boutique consultancy, where her wealth of knowledge, skills, and experience in human performance improvement, adult education, and instructional design make her a unique resource for many organizations.

Being an engineer has a significant impact on Nurdan’s analytical skills. She loves to analyze and identify the facts instead of making assumptions. A visionary, Nurdan sees the big picture and brings bold ideas, with supporting data to her clients that they never considered – and are often in awe at the results.

Nurdan partners with businesses to help them understand the many layers within their organization that impact human performance. She weaves the principles of adult education, instructional design, and innovative tools and technology to develop effective solutions that create new behaviours, and as a result, increase performance outcomes.
