Founder’s Story

Claris’ Story: Business Coaching Background

Founding partner and backbone of Claris, Tasneem was born into a complex and chaotic new family business.

Business Mayhem

Real Life Knowledge

This unique blend of sensibilities has resulted in what industry experts have cited as “a lens of authentic insight and real-life knowledge.”

Tasneem’s personal belief is that sound emotional and conversational intelligence can illuminate pathways and bring a more human touch to the business.

This philosophy lead to the creation of Claris, and the recognised work it is still doing today to help with business coaching.

Becoming a Problem Solver

What might have deterred any young child to stay clear of such travesties, actually sparked inspiration and a relentless passion in Tasneem to become a problem solver, an empathetic listener and an exceptional life coach.

Tasneem has worked globally across East Africa, the UK, USA and other parts of Europe, and naturally became a prism to filter all sorts of cultures, languages, personalities.
