“A great story has the following elements. It starts with a PROMISE (telling them how you solve their problem). Followed by a PROOF (reference of how you added value in real life using your solution), and finally, a PITCH with a call to action (what a customer needs to do to get this solution)”.
Hi! I am Aashiq Shariff.
I am an entrepreneur, sales and business development expert, coach, mentor, writer, TEDx speaker and a dad. I am a lover of life and all its amazing mysteries.
I have over 20 years of real on the ground experience in the telecom and IT sector, where I was involved in sales, development and grooming of individuals, successful products that impacted thousands of businesses across the East African region. I played a pivotal role in improving technology and connectivity in Tanzania and quite possibly through the African continent.
I am also the former CEO of Raha, an IT and broadband connectivity. Starting as a sales person at Raha, in 1999, my passion for technology fuelled my goals of turning a small ISP into one of the largest tech and broadband companies. Raha was acquired by Liquid Telecom in 2017.
My life mission is to use my combined knowledge, experience and passions to be useful and meaningful to everyone around me and the world at large; developing YOU into the best version of you!
