Bio: Farah Saad
After completing her Bachelors in Business Administration (BBA) from Simon Fraser University (SFU), she started her career at PepsiCo Beverages Canada in the accelerated Sales Management Program. After a successful career at Pepsi, Farah was recruited as Customer Business Development Manager at Maple Leaf Foods and was in charge of managing one of the largest corporate accounts for the Western Canada region. Farah knows firsthand the stress and high anxiety people feel on a daily basis.
Like many others, Farah experienced a burnout and many unexpected absences which led to taking time off to travel the world in 2016. During this trip, Farah discovered Eastern wellness practices to cope with stress, anxiety and other mental health issues through a silent meditation retreat in Myanmar and training with spiritual healers in a temple in Bali, Indonesia.
Upon her return, Farah founded Be Kalm, a mindfulness consulting agency that specializes in stress and anxiety management and integrating mindfulness in the workplace through a full range of practical, results driven services including customized workshops, internal audits and mindfulness implementation plans to help businesses maximize their human capital. BeKalm's core principles of Authenticity, Freedom, and Innovation guide Farah's work.
Some of BeKalm Mindfulness Consulting past clients include: Global Affairs Canada, CFIA, iQmetrix, Simon Fraser University, Boys & Girls Clubs of South Coast BC, and Department of Canadian Heritage. Farah is passionate about living life whole-heartedly and embracing mindfulness daily. When Farah is not helping her clients, you can find Farah either travelling to a new place or going on her favourite hike. Farah’s goal is to shift the corporate culture in North America through making mindfulness a daily practice in the workplace and community at large.
