Our success stories

Murtaza gets my highest recommendation as a business coach and mentor. He listened, understood and helped me identify the challenges I was having and gave me the tools to support our fast growing business.

I highly recommend working with Julia. The sessions have been absolutely brilliant, beating my expectations on every occasion. I have progressed in many areas of my life and feeling the benefits daily.

George Flooks, CEO Fitness First Middle East and North Africa

I have worked with Murtaza for over a year now and our journey has been very rewarding. There is a magical element that takes place. Every time I meet him we go through the tasks that were set and you are actually able to see progress that you did not think you had made. As a business owner and entrepreneur you are always focused on the bigger picture, what Murtaza has enabled me to do is create a structured way to review my 90 day and weekly goals, and align those goals with my long-term vision for RSA Global.
