'Life is either a daring adventure or nothing' - Helen Keller

For me it has been a daring adventure as an entrepreneur and trainer - the two jobs I embraced as opposed to the corporate career I was studying for. This was probably the best decision I made in my life.

I have had the privilege of working with some great audiences including corporate professionals, entrepreneurs, social workers, and the government. The ones I have enjoyed working with the most have been youth - before they turn into any of the former.

I run away from the term 'expert.' At best, I am an explorer. Our 'explorer' attitude as a dynamic young team took us places - from global trotting to nationwide training, top corporate houses to international human development projects, local corporatisation work to training teachers fostering our future generations.

A decade down the line, I have consolidated my work under authentic leadership, meaningful enterprises, and social technologies. I am an educator and practitioner of the same.

As a trainer, I keep it simple. Simple is different for different audiences. But we have had enough of jargon and plenty of powerpoints. I believe people coming together is the experience in itself. Being led with authenticity, believing in their own potential and learning from the best is what I try bringing together. I believe a conversation lacking emotional engagement is uninspiring and an idea untested during the experience is an idea not remembered the next day.

Within the rigorous training schedule, I have launched many learning products, given life to industry initiatives and been an innovator. I take pride in reaching out to over 60 districts across Pakistan directly through our development portfolio.

And hey, I have had the time to jump off cliffs, go under the oceans, jump off skies and crack a lot of insensitive jokes. People say they married their person of dreams. I married a girl I could not even dream of, even though I dream quite a lot. I divide my time between Islamabad, Karachi and my awesome training destinations.

To life, and to make it worthwhile, a daring adventure!

Recently I had an opportunity to work with Umair Jaliawala while preparing our in-house training sessions for Retail. The zeal and excitement he has shown during the homework was really commendable and the delivery was a “WOW” experience. Umair belongs to the rare group of training professionals who genuinely believes in adding value in people's lives. Being so "Young" hence youthful thoughts makes him a unique Trainer. He comes across as someone who knows what he is talking about and can adapt his style based on audience involvement and emotional quotient level. Umair ensures that the course remains interactive and participants learn without being taught. Nothing can stop him from achieving whatever he wants in his life, Good Luck for “Turns” ahead. Keep turning.
