My 25+ year business career has been that of a successful CEO, entrepreneur, media professional. Now I am also a futurist and a motivational speaker.

I have had the privilege of working with some of the best corporations in the world including Dow Jones Markets, The Times/Sunday Times and Bloomberg Media and have many achievements to show for it.

I studied at Harvard Business School, have a degree in Economics, lived and worked in the most exotic cities in the world, gaining unique insights and experiences on this business journey.

However that is really not the whole story. Now I am MAD … even 100% MAD!

I am MAD about “Making A Difference” in everything I do. Work, social impact, life, everything.

I am a futurist and a disruptive thinker. I love to connect the dots between the present and future, to create breakthrough thinking for organizations so they can thrive in the future and create exponential business and social value.

I am also the founder and CEO of MAD Talks, a digital content and storytelling platform that brings together some of the best minds of the region.

Get in touch with me. Together let's make a difference!


I am a totally purpose driven person. To fulfill that and to genuinely “make a difference” in the world I set up 100% MAD. 100% MAD is a not for profit Social Enterprise & a global millennial movement using the power of the digital environment to democratize philanthropy & impact a billion people, through education & empowerment. That is what I am MAD about?

What are you MAD about?
