Shahab Anari, MD is a Top 25 Canadian Immigrant, an international speaker and author who helps his audience join the top 1% in their field so they can have a tremendous meaningful impact in the world.

Shahab has had an interesting life story:

  • Although he was not accepted into the gifted program as a kid, he came first among more than one million contenders in the fierce nation-wide University Entrance Exam in his country of birth in 1997.
  • He trained as a medical doctor, but he was not passionate about medicine as a career. Therefore, after graduation, he made the long painful transition to become a speaker, now having served people in 19 different countries.
  • Although he had a very difficult first couple of years after immigrating to Canada, he was recognized as one of the Top 25 Canadian Immigrants in 2020.

Every year, Shahab speaks at close to 100 sessions on topics of resilience and personal branding (virtually and in-person), where he has shared the stage with legendary speakers such as Deepak Chopra, Brian Tracy, Jack Canfield, and Robert Kiyosaki. He's also the best-selling author of multiple books that have been widely read worldwide. He also consistently creates content for his ~200,000 engaged social media followers.

Shahab has been featured on the Wall Street Journal, Yahoo! Finance and Toronto.com and is now a contributor to Forbes. He’s a Top 25 Canadian Immigrant, a member of CAPS (Canadian Association of Professional Speakers), and a board member of ICF (International Coaching Federation), Toronto Chapter. Through the years, he has done other volunteer work as well, including mentoring with Futurpreneur Canada and helping newcomers at YMCA.

Shahab is the Dad of two beautiful sons, Kason and Aiden, and he’s happily married to his wife, Katty.
