An exclusive heart-to-heart talk was organized with the Managing Director PharmEvo Mr. Haroon Qassim where he shared his story and wisdom with us.

During the conversation, we learned about the early years of Haroon sahab’s journey that included his interests and hobbies growing up to then the experiences he learned during his studies.

He shared stories from his first job working in a sports center and then working with the admissions of his university where one of his colleagues told him that one day she will read his name in a national newspaper which, as he recalled, became true when he became Chairperson for PPMA.

He also shared the journey of PharmEvo from his lense and recalled all the colleagues that he has worked with over the years during PharmEvo’s journey.

“The sky turns dark as the clouds thunder. Big drops of rain announce the arrival of the blessed rain. A small boy runs to catch the ball amidst the heavy pour. But not even the storm could stop him from what was to become a life-long passion for CRICKET.

Life continued and this passion for cricket continued alongside my passion for my work. My philosophy is that one should do what one loves so one will never have to work. But easier said than done. The sport requires extreme hard work, loads of patience and stamina, continuous learning, willingness to accept mistakes, and taking full responsibility for yourself and your team’s actions, and of course the vision to see beyond. I employed the same skills in my work.

The only keyword here is to keep going no matter how tough or rough it gets. Consistency and showing up in all circumstances is the only way to get through of course seeking the help of only Allah SWT.

My cricketing days continue and make for a welcome respite from the competitive job goals. As for now, I find myself completely immersed in both my passions.
