Think Uzair is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Michael Vlasov
They're my school  •  Financial Analyst, McKesson Canada. Previously Director of Finance, Schulich School of Business - York University.
Uzair is a fantastic person to work with, and is not only a multi-skilled and insightful colleague, but also a creative strategist. I had th ... e pleasure of working with him on a 4-month live consulting project for a Canadian Apparel Company. Uzair is a great teammate with strong problem solving skills. But what is even more important, he is one of those rare professionals who can focus on the details and can also have far sighted strategic visions and ideas. Hence, as a advisor or entrepreneur, Uzair earns my highest recommendation.
Radha Soni, MBA, PMP
They're my school  •  International Associate, Scotiabank and Board Member, Defence for Children International.
He's driven and has passion.
Jason Marin
We worked together  •  Project Manager, Co-Pilot Network, CatalystsX. Previously Recruitment Coordinator - Latin America, University of Toronto.
Uzair has succeeded in a cut thought industry with aplomb, perseverance and good-natured humour. He was a pleasure to work with and from wh ... at I observed, his clients felt the same way! I'm not surprised he was tapped to serve as the Director of Sales. He is also committed to personal and professional development, having completed his MBA part-time (while also being a father to a new born) and continuing to work full-time.
