Reza grew up solving problems in construction with his father who was a great mentor. He spent 15+ years solving problems in the construction industry from multiple angles: laborer, field engineer, project coordinator, cost consultant, college programs advisor, and college instructor.
During his time teaching in the Construction Management postgraduate programs at George Brown College, he confirmed his passion for coaching and helping others succeed. He also confirmed his love for the art and science of effective communication, which he continuously practices to improve upon.
Since his father’s sudden passing in 2014, Reza dedicated himself to follow his father’s final words of advice: to follow his heart in life. His commitment to this sparked his journey to discover how he can best support himself and serve others. Shortly after, he joined a mindfulness meditation community called Luminous Ground Meditation, as a student and teacher-in-training, where he studied and practiced with a teacher and group to understand, heal and strengthen various common mental health challenges such as anxiety and stress.
Six years and approximately 3,400 hours of training later, Reza decided to funnel his industry experience, communication expertise, and passion for mindfulness practice to become a uniquely effective sales professional within the construction SaaS (software as a solution) industry. Currently on the sales team at eCompliance (Alcumus), a company with a mission to protect 1,000,000 lives by the end of 2020, he has come full circle in achieving his commitment and hopes his father is proud.
Occasionally, Reza will share personal insights and simple mindfulness meditation practices on his LinkedIn or Instagram profiles. If you’re interested in connecting with him or exploring his content, connect with him there.
