Saj is an economist, author and founder of the London-based multi-award winning talent agency The Smarty Train (TST).

Besides some trips to Number 10, working with two Secretaries of State, getting involved in London’s successful 2012 Olympic bid, being a school governor and a trustee of The University of London Convocation Trust, Saj still finds time to pursue his interests in Accelerated Learning. He's a bit of a geek at heart. Ask him why a trip to the park can have a real impact on your skills.

Saj has studied at Harvard University, The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and University College London (UCL), where he received both a Graduate Merit Award and a Faculty Award for outstanding academic performance. 

In 2017 he was awarded Freedom of the City of London. And he's also registered on a global patent for a model that measures the value of public sector service delivery. Smarties get stuff done!

Saj founded The Smarty Train (TST) with a simple mission: to unlock talent, everywhere.

This sits at the heart of everything TST does. Famed for designing powerful training experiences, using the latest in design thinking and behavioural science, TST builds inductions and graduate programmes through to Executive Level and C-Suite training and learning experiences.  According to one of its clients, TST is the ‘secret cinema of training.’  TST combines the best of behavioural science, creativity, training, event design, data geekiness, production and design thinking to help their clients unlock talent. And they’ve won awards too.
