Claris’ Story: Business Coaching Background

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

Business Mayhem

Roaming the hallways of her father’s supermarket chain and hotel at just 10 years old, and then also marrying into a family business, she was witness to all aspects of the business world – good and bad.

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.
