Khuram Malik is a leading business strategist, author, blogger and husband.
He is a five-star rated consultant, cited in business magazines such as BizJournals.com and an adviser to business leaders and well known start-up founders.
In the dotcom era he started a business with his father that had revenues of just under $1.5 million in the first year. He was just 20 at the time.
In the last few years he has helped over 200 businesses around the globe with strategies for all kinds of growth objectives including attracting investments, improving sales and marketing and engaging the best talent for companies.
He has helped clients raise millions in investments, developed branding and marketing strategies that rival Apple and Uber and coached hundreds of founders with further developing their own founder psyche. He’s a firm believer and an evangelist for entrepreneurship, having started his own entrepreneurial journey in his teens.
He is a strong advocate that entrepreneurship is the best vehicle at our current disposal for social change. He is a champion of integrity and ethics in business and has found many parallels between teachings of faith and the guiding principles of successful businesses today.
Khuram sees the big picture. His greatest strength is in spotting patterns, looking ahead of the curve and connecting the dots. People love his ability to distill complex ideas into simple concepts. He’s often touted lovingly as a “magician” for his ability to find unique solutions to difficult problems.
Khuram was one of the first of the non-corporates to outsource software development to the Indo-Pak region having met the information minister of Karachi in Pakistan at the time. He predicted the success of the iPad, its spawning of a new market and Tesla’s quick rise to fame. He is unrepentant and relentless about early adoption and smart execution.
After a number of health issues during his twenties, Khuram now tries to lead an organic lifestyle. Currently residing in London with his wife, Khuram enjoys fine dining, nature treks, reading, motor racing and data visualisation.
He is the chief strategist and founder of Stratagem.io (http://stratagem.io/), a disruptive consulting company for small to medium size enterprises and startups.
His favourite entrepreneurs and management scholars are Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Jack Ma and Peter Drucker.
His greatest weakness is dealing with any criticism of Superman.
