About Dr.Baby Sam Saamuel

Turnaround Consultant | Strategic Consultant | Business Mentor

Visionary | Tactician | Humanist

Dr. Baby Sam Saamuel is by nature a humanist and by profession, a management professional.

Based in the Sultanate of Oman, this high impact entrepreneurial executive is currently involved in diverse entrepreneurial activities. His core expertise is in brand recognition, business development, and turnaround & crisis management, gained through the cross cultural experience amassed over 17+ years in senior management roles across various sectors, particularly, IT.

Professionally, he is at present donning multiple hats, being the General Manager & Business Designer for the IT Company Intertech LLC and being the Organization mentor for multiple organisations like the media house Trifoil Advertising & Publishing SAOC, Muscat; and the design house Adventz, Muscat.

Inspired by start-ups, turnarounds and entrepreneurial ventures, and driven by an indomitable will to succeed, his managerial and entrepreneurial capabilities are underlined by his passion for work and life in general.

Career background includes various roles and responsibilities that span all phases of operational platforms, business development cycles, sales & marketing and post-sale professional services. Having started out as a marketing consultant in 2000, within a span of just a decade, he has made a name for himself in the field of management consultancy.

A momentous decision, taken early on in his career, was to steer away from big names, leaving large and enticing corporate entities for smaller, yet promising firms. In a latest example, He has been instrumental in a magical turnaround of the company Intertech in less than four months. He also brought about a turnaround for Adventz, and not only made the venture sustainable in less than six months, but also transformed it into the award winning top digital agency in Muscat that it is today. Establishing these firms into sustainable, profit making enterprises has given Dr. Baby Sam Saamuel the impetus to focus his skills in the direction of management consultancy, particularly in the field of turnaround and crises management.

A highly articulate independent thinker, he offers key focus in Tactic & Strategic Management, Strategic marketing consultancy, Branding, Innovation consulting and Turnaround management.

He is also very passionate about social empowerment and this reflects in his business decisions as well, since a major emphasis of work as Business Consultant and Business Mentor is in supporting and promoting small enterprises, particularly those with potential for community impact, such as social enterprises.

He is the President of Anjappam Charitable Trust, a social enterprise that is currently running an economy restaurant in India. Another project he is spearheading is 'Little Hugs', a children’s home in Kerala, India that is underway.

In Oman, he is involved with Knowledge Oman - the largest voluntary initiative in the Sultanate, as its Director, in their initiative to spread knowledge and impart education.

He was previously Senior Vice President of Knowledge Oman, where he was heading the Coaching & Mentoring Unit & leading Knowledge Oman in areas of Social Entrepreneurship Development, Strategic partnership, and Branding & Operations, including running the Social Entrepreneurship programs of KO in association with Riyada & C3.

Since 2016, he has been offering his services as an elected member and Director of the Board of Indian Schools in Oman, the consortium of 19 schools that are spread across the Sultanate. He is the Director In-charge of the Center for Special Education (CSE), a facility that caters to the special needs children in Oman along with four mainstream schools.

Educational background includes Master’s in Business Administration – MBA (Specialization- Marketing), Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resources Management – PGDHRM (Specialization: HR) and a PHD in Entrepreneurship.
