ska redefined 2010

September 21, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Not too long ago, I embarked on a project to redefine myself. Have I succeeded? Well, so far, so good! Recently, I thought, why not redefine and pep up the company a little bit as well. After all, it is as much a part of me as my limbs. So, after long hours spent updating and redoing the company’s information and presentation, it was ready by morning. I took the documents to my lawyer, Philip O* in the afternoon, and a few minutes later, it was registered! You are about to read about The SKA Group Inc (as of 2010).

Note, I tapped into the futuristic ideology of the deja vu post! As I said earlier, this is as of 2010 so there are some “changes” lol; I don’t have Richard Branson as a mentor for nothing!

The company revolutionizing business and service through its ethics and expertise expressed through its numerous firms worldwide.
The SKA Group is one of the largest, privately-owned conglomerates in the world. It owns and oversees the operations of over seven subsidiaries and businesses with branches all over the world in the following fields: advertising, branding, clothing, education, financial services, publication and real estate. Reporting legitimate annual profits in excess of about US$110 million with over 2,000 dedicated people in employment worldwide, The SKA Group is undoubtedly one of the most admired and profitable Companies in the world.

History
The SKA Group was founded in Canada by Sylvester Kay-Adade in 2008. It initially began operations as Pearl Kreations (now, one of its Subsidiaries) on Monday, January 28th, 2008 in Hamilton, Ontario.

As Pearl Kreations grew, he diversified into other markets, thereby giving rise new Companies- Suave Clothing and Sylver Productions. Those were soon followed by SKA Ventures and others.

In January 2010, The SKA Group was set up to manage all the ventures and potential businesses. It became a registered Conglomerate incorporated in Canada under the laws of the Province of Ontario in September 2010 with most of its Subsidiaries fully functional at the time. By December 2010, barely three (3) years since its inception in January 2008, it had made over US$1 million in revenue with a vibrant work force of about 100 people; thus making it not only one of the most profitable, but also one of the fastest growing Companies in the world.

I stayed up one night sketching logos for the subsidiaries as well as the colors to be used. These are the sketches:

A couple of days later, I got in contact with Najim Z*. He’s a close colleague that’s talented in designing (there was an Inspitories on him in July). He designed my very first business cards and The SKA Group logo. This time, I gave him eight (8) new challenges to conquer. And after about three (3) weeks, some tweaking and editing, this is what we have:

Other Companies & Ventures
The major businesses that The SKA Group has partial ownership in are:

RCubed-Merit: This company highlights and optimizes the potential for various living spaces by redefining the outlook of the rooms, offices, homes and workspaces through the reorganization and restructuring of their overall presentation.

C’est fini!

I’m very happy and satisfied. Of course, all these modifications and additional logos meant I had to redo The SKA Group’s outlining document and that I did (for 2 hours)!

Earlier on in the year, I paid for the address: theska-group.com. I had to use that because theskagroup.com, skagroup.com, skag.com etc were all taken by random people with either boring, uncreative websites or stupid, one-paged websites. I was so upset…I think I still am. At least, I found something I could use. I’m considering changing the address to skagroupinc.com soon.

Anyway, after modifying the document, I decided to develop the website! I spent a whooping 8 hours on it 😦 and right now, it’s 3/4 ready! Please check it out the mock site anytime. It has basically the same info as is on here, but organized on to different pages. There is also now a twitter account and a Facebook page for the most active businesses.

The only thing I’m still undecided on is if to have just two of the subsidiaries should be traded on the stock market or none; and just remain entirely private 0_0. Well, after all, there are Companies like Cargill and Koch Industries – both privately owned and make over US$100M in revenue annually. One thing for sure is they will all operate independently, but will be monitored and regulated by the Group which will be controlled by the President, yours truly 😉

I just might make this an annual thing. I have a feeling things will keep evolving.
