Azim Jamal is the founder of Corporate Sufi Worldwide Inc., a company dedicated to inspiring leaders at all levels to achieve material success, blended with a deep sense of purpose, passion and happiness. He calls this the synergy of Business, Balance & Beyond, and it’s achieved by unleashing the power within that we all share.
Azim is the author of several highly-acclaimed books including The Corporate Sufi and Business, Balance & Beyond. He has twice been a # 1 Amazon bestselling author; and in 2005 topped Harry Potter. He has also been a # 1 bestseller with Barnes & Noble, the largest bookstore chain in the world, and his co-authored book – The Power of Giving – won the Nautilus Gold Award in May 2009 for books that change lives.
Previous winners have included the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle, and Azim’s books have been translated into 10 languages. Over and above this, Azim is a living, breathing example of the Corporate Sufi message. Some years ago, he was a highly successful accountant, involved with significant business decisions. But, despite the outward appearance of success, something was missing. This all came to a head when he was doing volunteer work with refugees. He suddenly realized a truth that shook him to the core. These refugees, who had lost virtually everything, had a deeply moving inner strength that still shone through. This set him on a new path of purpose, passion, balance and happiness, because material success, though important, is incomplete without spiritual success.
In fact, it’s a pathway to burnout and dissatisfaction. So he made a life-altering decision. From that point on he would devote himself to spreading the word about Business, Balance & Beyond. Azim has conducted high-level coaching assignments with billion-dollar corporations, Fortune 500 companies and sports stars. His clients include Barclays Bank, KPMG, Deloitte, Citibank, Allergan, Standard Chartered Bank, World Presidents’ Organization (WPO), Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO), Varian Medical Services and the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO). His inspiring message has been heard live by over 1,000,000 people in 30 countries.
