Armed with more than 25 years of experience, Calvin has designed a practical and systematic technique called The ICONIC Framework™ to help organizations achieve and maintain iconic status in the eyes of their customers.
The ICONIC Framework was built based on nearly two decades of practical branding and leadership experience, and countless hours of readings from secondary research of iconic brands over the years, in which he served as vice president of brand marketing with Hilton Worldwide where he was responsible for the marketing and public relations efforts for more than 150 Homewood Suites by Hilton hotels.
Calvin's achievements include:
Fresh on the heels of my 25+ year successful career in which I was an award-winning CEO of a global consulting firm for over a decade, a serial entrepreneur that spearheaded multi-million dollar acquisitions and mergers while working with more than 11 start-ups globally, and a business transformation and crisis specialist, I formed SMALIK Enterprises with one single goal in mind — to help others and promote change through her proven strategies and methodologies.
I founded SME with the same intention I had in mind when I started my first company MalikCo, a highly successful global technology consulting firm. The goal is to build a customer centric business consulting, executive coaching and crisis management services organization that changes the industry’s business model for service delivery and creating sustainable improvements to individual or organizational performance, productivity, and profitability globally.
Hailed as an expert negotiator and skilled crisis management consultant in the industry, I am helping top-notch athletes, executives and businesses take their careers and organizations to the next level while also resolving high conflict and crisis cases for individuals and companies globally.
In addition to bringing my wealth of knowledge, undeniable experience and proven track record of success to SMALIK Enterprises, I have also established a team of world class experts to ensure SME delivers the highest level of service and results to its clients globally.
