Julie Arsenault
We worked together  •  Leader, LRN Canada and member of Global Advisory Services, LRN and Founder, PIVOT. The University of British Columbia grad.
I hesitate above as Ali is just as tenacious, driven and I would qualify him as a thoughtful risk taker. All qualities that are required to ... successful lead an entrepreneurial venture. The one strength that has not been highlighted, and which makes Ali a great entrepreneur is his innate skills at inspiring people to join his cause. And in part because he is sharp and focused. When Ali is leading a project, you know he has taken part in a collaborative process to gather all relevant information, and then has an uncanny ability to filter through the information, context, environment, all the ingredients to come up with a solid strategy. He does not stop there, he is own of the best "authentic" networkers I have met. He gathers the right people with the right skills to grow a project to successful completion. He was a avid support and volunteer with Business for the Arts, and supported our national strategic planning process for the national campaign of artsScene. And continues to be a major supporter.
Craig Bedard
We worked together  •  Partner, Zoobis Partners and Founder, Tattoo You Inc.. University of Alberta grad.
I think Ali is really trying to create positive change in business which I feel is a sign of a successful entrepreneur. He is a lifelong lea ... rner and seeks the advice of others who 'have been there' so I think he would be a good fit for this group.
Dylan Hardy
They're my mentor  •  Chief Operating Officer, Think Research and Managing Partner, Victor Avenue Capital. The University of Western Ontario grad.
Ali is a great entrepreneur - this is proven through his past successes. He is able to envision a business opportunity based on the green s ... hoots of an emerging trend and get others excited about the idea. He is intrepid and persuasive.
Ron Guidinger
They're my mentor  •  Chair TEC 304, TEC Canada and President, Guidinger Military Insights Ltd.. Queen's grad.
As a member of my TEC Canada CEO Group, Ali Shivji proved himself up to the challenge of being a fully contributing member in spite of being ... the youngest member. He has a quick mind that he applies well to all kinds of situations with excellent results. Importantly, he recognizes when he should seek outside advice to address issues, challenges and opportunities to achieve optimal results. Ali has a strong work ethic and likes to lead by example. He does not flinch from risk, but ensures that he fully engages and manages the risk to tolerable levels. In sum, Ali has the skill, intellect and courage necessary to become a great entrepreneur. I am proud to count him among my colleagues.
Alim Ladha
They're my mentor  •  Senior Advisor, ALU - African Leadership Unleashed. Previously Founding CEO, ALU - African Leadership Unleashed.
Ali is possibly the most driven person I have met. His ability to find solutions/opportunities when others see obstacles is better than anyo ... ne I have seen in my career. I fully expect Ali to succeed as an entrepreneur due to this "mindset" and "skills". In addition, he is extremely personable, a great salesman for him/ his team / his ideas. He will make a great addition to your network.
Mike Davis
They're my school  •  Co-founder, CTO, MPOWER Financing and Managing Director, Unique Davis Solutions. Purdue grad.
Ali is an incredibly thoughtful person. His ability to think about a problem and work through possible solutions is what impressed me at fir ... st about Ali. What makes Ali an incredible entrepreneur is to then reflect on the impact of the proposed solutions to identify incremental steps that could benefit from customer validation along the way - thereby increasing the probability of success.
Alim Ladha
We worked together  •  Senior Advisor, ALU - African Leadership Unleashed. Previously Founding CEO, ALU - African Leadership Unleashed.
He is absolutely one of the most driven and charismatic person i have met. His ability to practically adapt to tough situations, adjust the ... course, and more amazingly, convince as many people to follow him is unmatched. He has succeeded in an SME with Atlas, in a corporate giant like McKinsey. Ali takes no prisoners approach to getting things done. If the task is impossible, Ali will get it done. A mixture of raw talent and people skills...
