"I have known Ms. Malik for the last 5 years, and I have been witness to her devotion to her family all the while being a leader in the tech world which is evident by her many awards. Ms. Malik' ability to navigate through the  tech world has allowed her to take a small boutique firm on a meteoric rise by transforming it into a global leader is quite impressive in itself. In a male dominated world of tech it is Ms. Malik' grace under fire and tenacity to do good work sets her apart which is evident by 17 years in business, and the litany of high profile labels on her roster.

I personally have over 15 years experience in the San Francisco Bay Area participating in and running many client engagements. I know the quality of person, and skill that  Ms. Malik possesses, and the vision she has with this new endeavor I know will be a success.

Ms. Malik has consistently displayed the ability to hit the ground running, developing a strong plan to solve the issues at hand is a hallmark of the strong set of intangibles that allows her to maintain strong working relationships with past clients, and provides strong recommendations for future clients. In my experience as a Professional Consultant having those skill sets are invaluable.

Ms. Malik is passionate, personable and caring all qualities that allows customer to have a level of confidence that a Ms. Malik  run project will get done not only within budget but on time.

On a personal note Ms. Malik is a valuable member of my professional circle. Ms. Malik has mentored myself on career goals, presentations, and direction on how to get to the next level.  Ms. Malik is caring, trustworthy, knowledgeable and driven. All the qualities one looks for in a mentor, and I am happy to call her friend."

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Stephynie and her firm for about 10 years, and have always been impressed by her talents and her personality.  It is not hard to imagine that she built a company from the ground up once you get to know her!

I have interacted with literally dozens firms and other consulting firms looking to 'partner' in my 30 years as a consultant.  I find that this offer to 'work together' is almost always an inquiry as to whether or not I have any easy leads for the prospective partner.  Often I am pestered for someone who wants to meet with me monthly, review my pipeline and client list, etc.  They were rarely offering up new leads to me!

Stephynie and her Executive team operated completely differently.  Frankly I am not sure why she put up with me for 10 years!  We only did a very small amount of work together, and many of the leads or pleas for help that I sent her way turned out to be far more trouble than they were worth (to Malikco).  Yet she was always responsive.  Always picked up the phone personally.  Was always very forthright about what could work and what would work, and more importantly what would not.  We talked at length about the big things we could do together, and I only wish I was empowered to make partnering decisions more broadly myself, because there is no doubt in my mind that if we had worked more closely together, Malikco would have made my practice bigger and stronger and more successful.

Personally I enjoy Stephynie’s company, drive, humor, and candor.  I consider her a friend and I could not possible recommend her or her talents any more highly.  I would wish her luck in her new endeavor, but she doesn’t need it.  She makes her own luck, as all talented and driven leaders do."

"Stephynie and I have known each for just over a year and she has made a huge impact to me during what was the most challenging part of my professional career.

Through her great listening skills, ability to provide genuine advice and follow through i would have unnecessarily struggled without her by my side.

Stephynie has a unique way of understanding and framing issues and solutions. It’s clear that her hugely impressive background and network has been a source of challenge and reward for her. The way she leveraged all of that for my benefit and support in a totally selfless way makes her a genuine coach and mentor that i look forward to building my relationship with.

Thank you, Stephynie. For everything."

“Stephynie sourced several individuals for me at my last firm. She took the time to understand the details of my client and the project, and worked to find the best candidates not just from a skills perspective but also from a culture fit. She would follow up afterwards to make sure they were the right match and was incredibly responsive. Overall just one of those people that 'gets things done' and is a pleasure to work with.”

— BRIGID TABOUR, Principal at EY LinkedIn

"I worked very closely with Stephynie Malik during 3 of my 6 years at Accenture. Our interaction began when the Accenture Project Director had a tall task of staffing 50 new resources in 30-45 days. Within 24 hours of our Project Director making the request, Stephynie herself was on the ground on our project getting an understanding of the ask of her.

As a leader on the PMO team at the time, I was tasked with working directly with Stephynie to coordinate this ramp effort at the required velocity.  We put a process in place, and Stephynie and I corresponded daily, often hourly, in regards to the status of the ramp up. At the time, being more junior in my career, I took note of her relentlessness. Stephynie embodied this challenge as if it were her own responsibility to meet this huge ramp effort in such a short period of time. It is one of the rare times in working with vendors that I have seen my level of intensity and pursuit of a task, matched, if not exceeded, by my counterpart.

Now that I have progressed in my career and am in a Practice Director position, my perspective on this experience has evolved. Not only was Stephynie relentless, but also creative as a leader in finding a way to make the undertaking a mutually beneficial prospect for both sides financially. In addition, Stephynie had the ability to not only garner the immediate respect of very senior Accenture leaders, but also had an uncanny ability to manage them in a manner that would drive to the ultimate goal of the Program Director.

Were it not for her efforts on this program, the program itself would have failed to satisfy its recovery plan and would have undoubtedly put the entire program at risk.

Hopefully this real life example illustrates the character, determination to succeed, and resolve of Stephynie. I am positive this will be a second successful business Stephynie builds from the ground up and wholeheartedly support this endeavor!"

Stephynie Malik Praise

"Stephynie Malik sets herself apart by being an empathetic, genuine leader who really cares about her client’s outcomes. She can make everyone feel like the most significant client and that you are on 'speed dial' for the next opportunity. My belief, after years of working with Stephynie, is that if she can’t resource my program, then no one can. However, she comes through every time."
