About SkillCity

Whether you are an MNC with large Asian workforce or an Asian startup with ambitions to go global, we've got something for you.

Using up-to-the-minute research, we bring you the insights, perspectives, tools and intuition you need to make your managers and organisations achieve superior performance and become truly global player.

A socially responsible green firm, we are aiming to do 90% of pre-delivery business pursuit through the internet so we all use fewer amounts of paper, lesser boardroom space and fewer flights (not to mention that you can put back the time and money savings to where it belongs: your people development!).

What people say about SkillCity

Tehseen Jafary Abbott

Learning is at its best when its relevant, meaningful, and the same time, fun and enjoyable. And that's exactly what the Training of Trainers 3-day workshop was for me in 2006 with Wali. A highly interactive, hands-on program, I learned a great deal, and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in the workshop. Wali is a wonderful coach and trainer, but most important, a kind, humble and wonderful human being, and I am sure that with his vast experience and wide range of expertise, SkillCity will soon become a raving success, Inshallah.

It has been a great experience to be Wali's MBA student at International Islamic University. His teaching is truly inspirational and full of learning. Wali gave me a new lens to explore new facets of ordinary things. He is a well-read person with some admirable people skills.
