Zunaira Munir's mantra of ‘making competition irrelevant’ has been taken on board by numerous companies worldwide, and has yielded consistently successful results.

The founder and Managing Director of international Blue Ocean Strategy consulting firm Strategize Blue, Dr. Zunaira Munir is an intelligent and experienced keynote speaker, specialising in innovation and leadership. Inspiring audiences to ‘Make Competition Irrelevant', she challenges companies to look beyond just surviving and presents 'Blue Ocean Strategy' as a learnable skill for systematically innovating.
