It’s without hesitation that I’ll not only endorse Tasleem’s talents, but I’ll put my reputation on the line to do so. Tasleem is an exceptional communicator, strategist, and business partner. Her versatility and added experience as an executive and communications coach sets her apart from her peers. I count on Tasleem for her counsel regularly. She will work tirelessly to help you achieve your goals and be a joy to work with in the process.

If you are looking for a superb communications consultant with a fresh approach, a communications strategy adviser or an intelligent action-oriented sounding board on how to leverage your communications strategy to support corporate or cultural change, I would recommend Tasleem Kassum without reservation.

I as global SVP in Human Resources was fortunate enough to work with Tasleem as my corporate communications adviser and partner at American Express and she helped me craft a communications strategy and framework to ensure my large diverse global team was connected, informed and focused on the changes that needed to happen in our world and the actions we needed to take as a result. She is a caring straight shooter, a superb communicator and she always understands and gets the big picture. Tasleem brings fresh ideas, strategy and a great new perspective to the table and importantly can execute those ideas for you in a timely, flexible way. You certainly don’t get one size fits all, boring corporate speak, or old thinking with Tasleem.

Tasleem is a sophisticated but pragmatic communications strategy talent who can add value to any industry, field of endeavour and I cannot vouch for her highly enough. I would be happy to support this recommendation with any further detail as needed.


Tasleem to be a thoughtful communicator and guide regarding the positioning and marketing of our HR initiatives. She is an especially tuned-in consultant and advisor, who demonstrates a deft balance of EQ and IQ – someone you want to have in your corner during time of change and challenge.

Tasleem has an amazing ability to drive the vision of her initiative at a big-picture strategic level, while feeling equally comfortable simultaneously managing through the details. She is adept at managing multi-functional teams and guiding senior leadership decisions; she effectively and gracefully builds consensus and drives to brand and communications recommendations that are realistic and actionable for the organization. More generally, Tasleem is wonderful to work with on account of her warm, engaging personality, her sharp wit and intelligence, and most importantly her commitment and conscientiousness to doing great work.
