About Zain

Hello Reader,

I am a Pakistani living in Poland. By education I am a Computer Systems Engineer and have been working in IT industry since I graduated in 2010. Currently I work as Product Manager in one of the leading IT companies in the world. It is a job as much as it is education, as I personally feel, Product Management is an area where there is always something new to learn. That is one of the topics that I write about on this blog.

Since I was a little kid, there was a strong desire in me to speak and share my thoughts openly. But for as long as I can remember I have been severely crippled by lack of confidence and extreme shyness. That changed when I joined a local club of toastmasters in 2016. Toastmasters is an organization that helps its members to grow as good communicators and leaders. For me it has been much more. It has helped to bring the real Zain that was always there, hidden under layers of self doubt, self criticism and self pity. Today not only I speak and lead confidently, I help others do the same as a Trainer and Speaker.

This blog has been long time in making and is a place where I share my thoughts on topics like Public Speaking, Communication, Leadership, Product Management and Life in general. This is also an attempt to document the knowledge that I have accumulated about these topics in one place not only for the readers but for myself as well. I hope that you will find something worth reading for yourself on this site.
