Karim H. Ismail

Karim is CEO at Avidium Inc., an international growth accelerator that helps organizations model the growth of some of the world’s most successful companies.

He has more than 20 years of executive-level experience in hospital management and the development of complex health care and cultural facilities worth some $750 million, overcoming major hurdles to see his vision become reality.

Karim also has 25 years of volunteer management experience, leading senior executive teams in strategic planning, strategic execution and project management.

He is the author of the Amazon best-seller Keep Any Promise: a blueprint for designing your future, based on the thinking, tools and techniques he developed over 20 years of managing multi-million dollar architecturally unique buildings and five years of intensive research. He applied this thinking to fuel his own dramatic personal transformation after his personal life was completely out of balance and hit rock bottom in 2002/2003, despite huge corporate success. This included climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro less than two years after not being able to walk to the end of his driveway. Thousands of people are already implementing the strategies outlined in Keep Any Promise to fuel and transform their corporate and personal lives.

Karim is a serial entrepreneur, having started, grown and sold a number of businesses. He recently sold a profitable family business to allow him to focus on helping organizations and individuals set and achieve huge goals.

He graduated with an MBA from University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management.
