Below is our recent interview with Fahim Moledina, the founder and principal consultant for Opti-Syn Consulting:
Q: Could you tell us a little bit about your company?
A: I founded Opti-Syn Consulting in 2019 to help business leaders solve complex problems in their organizations. We offer a lot of different services, depending on a business’ needs: Tax and accounting services; tech solutions; strategic planning; project management; organizational development; marketing, branding, sales and content strategy; even leadership coaching. Our goal is to be a one-stop shop for any business.
Q: What do you see as a good business opportunity right now?
A: Cryptocurrency. We’re in the midst of a cryptocurrency wave, in my opinion. Crypto is finally enjoying some widespread acceptance, and that is opening the doors for some highly specialized tech positions. Basically, we’re seeing a new market being born, right before our very eyes. I think it’s a very exciting opportunity for savvy businesspeople.
Q: What do you see as one of the biggest challenges facing businesses today?
A: Well, we’re seeing a real labor shortage at the moment, especially in tech. You could attribute it to the pandemic, to the effects the pandemic has had on the economy and on the workforce, work from home, all that. But the bottom line is that there’s a real concern that workforce challenges could hamper our economic recovery. Companies are really having to work to find good, qualified candidates. This is a serious issue that not enough people are talking about.
Q: You have a particular expertise in artificial intelligence. What do you think the future holds in that space?
A: I’m interested in both AI and robotic process automation and I think together these two developments are going to unlock some astounding opportunities. With advancements in RPA, AI can now be put inside of robots so they can actually understand documents, carry on conversations, all sorts of stuff. This is going to allow companies to retrain employees for more highly skilled positions. Basically, these new tech is just going to open the door for greater advancement in business.
Q: These developments will greatly help project management tasks, right?
A: Oh, absolutely. All project managers should know about RPA. It can eliminate a host of tedious tasks, payroll management, and logistical applications. IT’s a real revolution for people who oversee projects. Another big help to project managers is digital asset management technology, which allows you to include any file you store digitally, putting all your information in one, centralized place. That’s a big help for people who have to manage numerous project files.Activate Social Media:
