Did this really just happen? Did I just get spammed with a résumé? Is Imran Owais Kazmi a real person who thinks he can get a job through bulk mailing?

Allow me to introduce myself to you and request for some of your precious time; with your permission.
My name is Imran Owais Kazmi, and I am a management consultant, trainer and marketer based out of Karachi, Pakistan. We conduct monthly training programs at the Sheraton, Karachi besides corporate workshops and consulting assignments including the Balanced Score Card (Norton/Kaplan – Harvard). We’ve made a name for ourselves and multinational/ public/ private and Government sector clientele in the 4 years of our operations.
I am considering moving to the UAE. Although it would have been ideal to set up my own business, but since it has intense financial implications, I would prefer to move to the UAE market in an employment position. I have tried the normal “recruitment consultant’ routes but being a believer and trainer on personal selling, I have ventured to contact some of the selected decision makers like yourself, directly. Ideally I would be interested in moving to the UAE as a partner in a running concern in consulting or and training. In terms of a job, I’d prefer HR, Training or Marketing related positions at mid/senior levels of management.
I have worked previously in UAE/Dubai market briefly for a firm called Belhasa’s IT wing called InfoCell which is now situated at the Dubai Internet City and called Info2Cell. As a professional; I have worked with BAT (British-American Tobacco), Motorola, BASF/Knoll Pharma and Nokia in various capacities of sales, marketing, research, training and IT. At Nokia (I represented their distributor in Pakistan as Country Manager) I had full corporate responsibility. At a personal level, I love Jazz (Grover Washington, Sadao Watanabe among a few), am congenial, straightforward and possess problem solving and creative thinking skills.
