Biotailor and The Experts

Dr Audrey Prost, Reader in Global Health, UCL Institute of Global Health, UK

"I have known Sujyot Sakhrani since 2015. She attended my courses as part of her MSc in Global Health and Development at University College London. Sujyot came to our Masters programme following a successful career start in biotechnology, during which she progressed through a range of increasingly senior positions. Her more recent position as Head of Biotechnology at BIOTAILOR in Singapore involved both management duties and consultations related to nutrition and health with individuals and families. Sujyot then sought to strengthen her knowledge of global health and development through our Masters Programme.  I found Sujyot to be highly capable, motivated, and gifted with excellent critical thinking skills. She is able to produce written work of high quality, and is also an excellent team leader and facilitator during group-based work. Sujyot has outstanding interpersonal and organizational skills, both of which would serve her well in management positions. I have no doubt that her previous work experience combined with the knowledge and skills she acquired during the MSc will serve her well in her next steps in public health, nutrition and biotechnology.” 

Chantal Gill’ard, Director, PA Europe, Belgium

“Sujyot is a very creative and reliable person. We met in 2002 as students at the University of Sheffield studying for our MA in Biotechnological Law and Ethics. We remained in contact and met several times in different places on the globe. What I admire in Sujyot are her work ethics, her huge knowledge on nutrition and her drive to be the expert in what she does. Combined with the friendly personality these qualities make for a wonderful nutrition consultant. My experience in working with Sujyot stems from my time as a Member of the Dutch Parliament working on Maternal Health. Now as the Director at PA Europe I work for the world’s biggest companies in nutrition and have Sujyot as a valuable source for information and novel ideas. On a personal level she has advised me very well on food and nutrition during my medical treatments for breast cancer a year ago."

Adeline Tan, Chief Concierge, The Healing Concierge, Singapore

“I’ve known Sujyot from my venture capital days. Her dedication to research and education and her natural talent for connecting with people stood out even then and I’m sure she’ll bring the same qualities to her entrepreneurial venture. I’m impressed by the amount of research that’s gone into the development of high quality nutrition-related content and I wish her great success in following her passion to spread nutrition awareness and holistic healing.”

Biotech Commercialization

Troy Moore, Director of Genomic Resources, ResGen, An Invitrogen Company, US

“At Research Genetics, Sujyot has proven to possess a wide range of skills and understanding in molecular biological practices. Particularly useful is her diligence in following through with developmental processes that require logical experimental design. Sujyot has been challenged with a development process that was instrumental in validating a thermostable polymerase that was launched as a product from Invitrogen. She also continued to develop her skills in the laboratory through questioning and practice in optimizing enzyme performance for a high throughput cloning project of all yeast open reading frames. Sujyot’s time here has been very productive and enjoyable. Her personality meshes well within a co-operative research environment. There is no doubt in my mind that in any biological laboratory, she will continue her exceptional performance record.”

Jayesh Parekh, Investor-In-Residence, Singapore Management University, Singapore

“I have known Sujyot Sakhrani in a professional capacity. Sujyot handled the sourcing, auditing and valuating of IP from international Institutes of higher learning. This primarily works to build companies to commercialise IP on a global scale. Sujyot has structured the entire programme and is involved in all aspects of its development, marketing, negotiations and execution. Sujyot was also responsible for organizing educational workshops in refining innovation, power selling and new product development. I would confirm that Sujyot’s performance and attitude has been excellent. I found her to be adaptable and courteous. I found Sujyot to possess effective analytical and presentation skills in theoretical research and showing great strengths in public relations and marketing at entrepreneur talks and industry conventions. I am confident that she will prove to be an asset to your company.”

Jack Paar III, Microbiology Laboratory Coordinator, Environmental Protection Agency, US

“Sujyot worked with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) in the Ecosystems Assessment Unit. She was the lead microbiology research analyst for the USEPA New England Regional Laboratory in the evaluation of the new criteria and standards for the Water Quality Standards program in conjunction with two USEPA programs: BEACH Program and the Water Monitoring Quality Program. Her research compared the efficiency and accuracy of two methods to determine concentration of Enterococcus in water samples. Sujyot displayed an unwavering commitment to her project and undertook increasing responsibility for research and analysis and broadened her familiarity and experience with microbiological theory and practical, scientific techniques. She demonstrated great incentive and self-confidence as well as efficiency and organizational skills in her research. Sujyot’s drive and energy were an unmistakable part of her pleasant personality and contributed greatly to her success. We are pleased that we had the opportunity to benefit from her entrepreneurial spirit and enthusiasm and know that she benefited greatly from her experience with us. I recommend Sujyot’s professional and inter-personal capabilities without restriction.”

Diagnostic Health Programmes

Lu Liu, Head of Operations, JustOffice, Singapore

"I joined the Biotailor nutritional programme this year, and it was very beneficial for me. I gained many insights from the programme, which not only helped combat my allergy but its custom-made nutrition plan was beneficial to me for life. Sujyot is a very helpful and supportive coach and friend. She takes matters to heart, and is always around whenever I have any questions. I'd recommend Biotailor to anyone seeking to balance their bodies. It's a nutritional programme specifically designed for any individual, and the programme is made effective by a wonderfully helpful coach."

Aileen Chen, Mother, Singapore

"Sujyot has provided me with valuable, comprehensive advice for detoxifying my body during my pregnancy. Her advice was practical and thus sustainable, such that I could easily continue those lifestyle changes beyond pregnancy to ensure a healthy environment and diet for my family. Sujyot has an admirable combination of strong nutrition and biology background, professionalism, friendly and passionate personality, and ability to keenly perceive needs and customize advice, which makes for a great nutrition consultation."

Ela Erozan Gursel, Turkish Business Columnist, Singapore

“I met Sujyot at a networking event for entrepreneurs and academia. After she told me about her business and nutritional services she would be providing, I wanted to get more information in healthy nutrition plans. Since I moved to Singapore 2 years ago, I had put on weight. Because I have been working home-based, I was most of the time in front of my computer and didn't exercise on a regular basis. We met up again for coffee and she asked me about my lifestyle, eating-drinking habits and physical exercise to determine my current situation. Then, she took a few days to come up with a personalized plan that specifically meets my needs. This was a life changing plan that didn't only focus on nutrition but exercise, work and life balance, sleeping patterns etc... We started implementing the plan. Sujyot planned it in a way that I would not immediately abandon my old habits but each day I would take up a new challenge and adjust to the new system. Without getting frustrated to changes in my life, I gradually embraced my new way of life. Whenever I had questions or needed moral support, Sujyot was there to hold my hand. I found that change is not difficult if you are willing to take one step at a time.”

Using her extensive knowledge in biotechnology, she successfully completed possible therapeutic implications to this socio-economic problem, designed the biotechnological production and procedure methods for a possible weight control drug and completed a country market survey of the population.

The quality and integrity of ingredients used have been given a great deal of thought, underpinned by Biotailor's philosophy of promoting natural, healthy bodies and minds. The SUNYATA 100% natural Shea butter cream is a particular favourite - made with 100% organic, cold-pressed Shea butter sustainably sourced from Uganda, blended with sweet almond oil, all carrying the ECOCERT standard. And I love the continuation of attention to detail through the sustainable bamboo packaging. I look forward to seeing future products under this brand."
