Born and raised in Najran, Saudi Arabia, Aly was the sixth born among nine siblings. Being in a very conservative city, the first time Aly was exposed to television was in 1976 when he was only six years old, an experience that became an eye-opener that would eventually influence his lifelong exploration of the world. Two years later, he was already becoming an entrepreneur, investing a $3 cash gift from his father to purchase toys for resale to his siblings and other kids in the neighbourhood. At 13 years of age, Aly was already working as a full-time employee in the family business during the summer seasons and part-time during the school years.
From Student to Manager
Known for his curious and adventurous mind, Aly’s dream was to get to a point in life where he would travel the world, meet new people, and learn from different cultures. When he was 17 years old, he pursued this dream by travelling to Jeddah where he attended an Engineering course at King Abdulaziz University. Balancing between school and work, Aly worked at the family gold and jewelry business on a part-time basis, while at the same time working as a journalist at Al Madinah Newspaper. Hardworking and committed, he quickly grew to become an influential journalist challenging the confines of his conservative background to become an open-minded industry professional. Straight after graduation, he was recruited as a Senior General Manager at ALJ – Toyota Motor Corporation, where he worked for the next ten years, building a reputation as a visionary leader on all matters related to international sales, marketing, customer satisfaction and business development. Aly’s fruitful global career has grown through business acumen and extensive travel to 200+ cities in more than 60 countries.

He holds an Executive MBA and Diploma in Management from Saint Mary’s University, a Bachelor of Engineering degree from King Abdulaziz University, and has taken several leadership courses from Harvard Business School. He also merited for the Six Sigma Green Belt Qualification at Motorola University. His background with these academic achievements and his learned and acquired knowledge and skills have informed his strategic vision and enabled him to build one of Canada’s most successful ESL schools. As if that is not enough tenacity and achievement for one person, Aly also worked tirelessly to create a global network of ESL professionals, aiming to provide international students with the best in English language education and opportunity.

Aly innovated the CPIEAs with an express vision of “A World Where Education is Valued and Celebrated” and a mission “To Recognize the People Who Make Education Their Mission.” As a result, the CPIEAs highlight his dedication to improve the international education industry and provide a better world for everyone.
Aly has also developed, maintained and promoted professional relationships as the means to long-term success and growth. He believes that investments in time and energy are essential and that a “win-win” philosophy of business is always the most desirable strategy. As such, he finds gratification tapping from his visionary mentality to hold seminars and educational workshops globally to help those whose lives would be enriched by it. A visionary to the core, Aly boasts of local, national & international involvement in the international education industry.

The apple of his eye, Aly believes Raja to be his soulmate and prays to Allah with every breath that their union and family grows his endless blessings and happiness.

Business Strategic Consultation
Aly has the insight and deep experience to provide strategic advice to help achieve sustainable results sustainably. He creates tailored approaches to each client’s unique situation and brings extensive business and field experience with proven analytical techniques.

2- What are the steps to strategically change your company’s vision and team’s performance from
a dream to a reality?
3- What can co-owners do to improve their business and relationship?
4- How can your business better optimize digital presence?
5- How can a business owner work ON, not IN their business?
6- How can a family business avoid disaster in the case of life-changing events?

8- Why is business culture vital? And what are the common mistakes that leaders make?
Aly’s focused approach to strategically analyzing business situations starts from defining how an
organization does business and interacts internally and externally.
Aly will review and may advise restructuring the company’s vision and the human resource
strategy to align with the owner’s core values to build a sustainable business growth plan.
Aly thrives on drawing a clear link between the vision and each team member’s job description,
is a priceless proven technique that will enable business dreams to become a reality.
Considering the outcomes of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the fact that employees are not faceto-face every day, business culture is vitally essential to success.
Sophisticated Houman Resource Strategy
Great people are the most valuable asset of an organization. Aly uses a proven strategy and
industry insights to optimize how to make the most of these assets to increase productivity, create
value, and deliver lasting results beyond the organization’s four walls.
Hiring the right people is no easy task. However, not dealing with employee disengagement is
evidence of a growing problem. Likewise, motivating unappreciative team members is an
avoidable energy-draining if the hiring was done right in the first place.
Aly will work with you to help create a sophisticated human resource system that will focus on
• Improving your company culture – short term plan
• Forming a core team to lead your business – midterm plan
• Discovering succession strategy to sustain the company- long term plan
Yes, it is no easy task, but it is well worth the venture. Not only will you see positive results right
off the bat, but you will also attract talented professionals who can also help your company grow.
The premature death of a business owner can devastate a business.
Businesses can run into trouble at any stage without the guidance of their owners. For example,
internal unrest among employees could create complications as the company progresses if there
is no succession plan.
Also, there may be brand image issues if a brand has been associated with the founder for a long
time. Eventually, the founder’s death can affect the customer’s reaction to the company.
This process involves years of planning leading to execution. Aly will not only work with you to
create a business exit strategy, but he will also share his wealth of personal experience as he has already implemented
his Exit Strategy.
