Celebrating Ten Awesome Years In Pakistan

Celebrating Ten Awesome Years In Pakistan

It has been ten awesome years since I started working and living in Karachi, Pakistan. It’s a strange realization that I have never lived longer in any other place my whole life.

Hong Kong Is In A Hurry!

Disruption To Business: Did You Strike Out?

So far in 2013, Pakistan has seen numerous strike days and days in which, due to security reasons, mobile phone networks were shut down. No matter what the reason is for the strike (and I have full sympathy for the reason behind the strike that struck Karachi this week) the consequences and disruption to businesses … Continued

Young Entrepreneurs: Taking Charge

Young Entrepreneurs: Taking Charge

What do Steve Jobs, Sam Walton, Mark Zukerberg, Michael Dell, Sergey Brinn and my father all have in common? No, it is not that they all have been highly successful in building fortune 500 companies (my father build a modest Food and Beverage Distribution company in my hometown.) What they have in common is that … Continued

Interview IQ: Great Questions for Candidate to Ask

Interview IQ: Great Questions for Candidate to Ask

Over the years I have interviewed thousands of candidates. Some have been highly impressive, some good but the majority of candidates were mediocre. There is plenty of advice out there on how you should dress, behave and prepare for these job interviews. But, looking back I found that the majority of candidates that I hired … Continued
