Two Truths and a Lie
Raheel Naqvi (doer of good works, excellent good friend to the famous and not) is the Founding Principal at Enfad, a London-based consultancy specialising in helping institutions think differently about emerging futures by identifying new ways to serve people's everyday needs and wants for new information, services and products – particularly relating to multiple aspects of how people experience multi-channel internet products and services. Helping (mostly eBusiness professionals) to forge practical strategy and enhancing their organisational resilience under conditions of high uncertainty and discontinuous change.
Prior to founding Enfad, Raheel spent over a decade climbing the greasy corporate pole in the moneymaking field of Finance. Being in the City since a fresh-out-of-university graduate, he held a wide range of engagements. (please don't tell his Mother. She secretly still thinks he's a Marine Biologist!). In that time, he was a provider of highly regarded real-time economic analysis and information to top-50 bulge-brackets such as Central Banks, Goldman Sachs, ex-Lehman Brothers, E-brokers, Internet Companies, and the like.
But with pleasure came the pain. The money was great – but to be still earning it all these years later wasn’t part of the plan. Joining the City was a means to an end – the end being to cash in while we were still young enough to spend it and have fun. So secretly after plotting his escape (and clicking his heels three times) he chucked in his day job (and the moonlighting in other, largely creative industries) to start work on specific entrepreneurial projects, and other creative endeavours. This marked the first time the he ever really worked hard at something, using his intellect for development rather than destruction.
Hieroglyphics indicate that Raheel holds a Degree and MBA from Manchester and Newcastle University and strives to never again be seen near campus, as long as he is breathing and mobile. Raheel also earned a Gold Arrow and a Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Paw Pin for aluminium recycling and food collecting.
