MEET AYUB SHAIKH
– The Tech Whisperer
Ayub Shaikh is the Managing Director of Holistica Consulting and our Principal Trainer.
With over 16 years experience in this arena Ayub has had the privilege of training over 40,000 IT recruiters, HR professionals and Project Managers around the world. From some of the largest recruitment agencies to Fortune 500 companies, Ayub has been invited to come along and deliver his own brand of delivery in order to make the world of IT come to life for those who need to become comfortable with the jargon and terminology.
After graduating with an Honours Degree in Aeronautical / Mechanical Engineering from Kingston University, Ayub spent a number of years as an IT trainer and then an IT Recruiter in the city of London. Here he identified for himself that there was often a chasm of understanding between techno phobic business professionals (IT Recruiters and HR) and the IT people with whom they interacted on a regular basis. And so through Holistica he was able to bring together the three loves of his life, IT – Recruitment- Training.
Today Ayub travels the globe demystifying IT from the simple basics through to the most leading edge concepts such as IoT, Cloud, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data. Ayub’s passion is technology and, if there is a new concept that is looming over the horizon, he has made it his life’s purpose to identify it, digest it and get it ready for delivery to his beloved IT recruitment audience before the candidates and clients even notice!
Ayub is also author of the best-selling ‘IT Recruitment Survival Guide’ sold globally on Amazon and all major online book retailers, as well as being sold on the Kindle and Apples iTunes store in downloadable format.
