The Future of Health Now's Online Summit Begins

If you've been reading the Zynik blog at any point during 2012 you've likely noticed a few mentions about a project that Zynik's own Erai Beckmann has been working on. It's the type of project we like to be involved with because not only does it connect the world at large with their health & wellness (something we will always be in support of), it is very much intertwined with the personal passion that drives a young entrepreneur.

Erai Beckmann has worked hard to put together a distinguished network of thinkers, innovators, doctors and celebrities from the world of wellness. It's a real meeting point for the world's of eastern and traditional western medicine.

While there may be a lot of recognizable names on here that you will recognize from television or the New York Times bestseller list, there are also a number of well-respected individuals who may not have the household name or buzz that some of the others do – but that's one of the things that makes the Future of Health Now so interesting.

By concentrating on emerging trends or viewpoints backed up by science, there exists a great opportunity for health-minded people to find some new sources and new individuals from which to draw inspiration and expertise.

The 20 experts involved with the Future of Health Now:


Anat Baniel

Dr Mark Hyman

Rollin McCraty

Dr Kareem Samhouri

By listening to these in-depth interviews about so many unique areas of specialization, the Future of Health Now is an opportunity to take some time for yourself and to make an appointment for you – on your own terms.

Helping Erai connect with his vision of helping people to live happier and healthier lives is one of the reasons why it's important to support young entrepreneurs with very big visions. Here's to a vision of a healthier future.

RPS Composites was acquired by Zynik Capital in January 2012. Zynik has retained the entire management team and has left us to take care of the"nuts and bolts" of the business. We have been most impressed by Zynik's focus on the long term profitability and sustainability of the Company. Under the leadership of Zynik's Chairman, Iqbal Kassam, management, for the first time in years, is looking beyond tomorrow, next week and next month. Iqbal has lead several strategy sessions for senior management over the past year that have resulted in a new business model and strategic plan for the Company. This whole process, and Iqbal's enlightened approach to business, has re-energized the Company. We look forward to continuing to work with the Zynik team to strengthen and grow our business.

Weber Manufacturing was acquired by Zynik in 2007, it has been a pleasure working directly with the Chairman, Mr. Iqbal Kassam. His management style is the best I have ever seen! He allows Weber management to make all the day to day decisions, yet when we need to call on his expertise in strategic planning, he provides guidance and support. The entire Zynik team has been supportive and helpful with a focus on long-term growth for Weber, creating a win-win result for Weber employees and Zynik. I look forward to working with Zynik for many more years to come.

I have had the privileged of working with Zynik and the Kassam family for 15 years now. We have partnered as shareholders on two start-ups and one turnaround. I served as President and CEO in each those enterprises. The experience has provided me with a great learning environment as well as financial reward.

On behalf of the Weber employees and management, I would like to say THANK YOU for eight great years of working with you. Since you purchased Weber in April 2007 many great improvements have happened for Weber and the Town of Midland. Ok, truthfully we have had a few low points, but when working under your leadership we have managed to come out ahead and stronger.

Since April 2007 we have been able to double the gross revenue, expand into new markets, developed two new product lines that are not related to tooling and we have hired 50+ new fulltime employees which is not only adding to the Weber family, but supporting many businesses/people in the Town of Midland.

Iqbal, thank you for supporting Weber management as we grow this company and I look forward to many more years of working with you!
