Malala, now 17, was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman two years ago in her home country of Pakistan after coming to prominence for her campaigning for education for girls.
She won for what the Nobel committee called her “heroic struggle” for girls’ right to an education. She is the youngest ever winner of the prize.
As an experienced entrepreneur and business leader, I have successfully acquired, developed, operated, and sold a number of businesses in the oil and gas, manufacturing, export, and knowledge industries. I have held numerous leadership positions throughout my career and consider myself a continuous and intense student of leadership.
My intention is to continue to explore new ideas, possibilities and create new solutions to complex and sometimes intractable challenges as I migrate from business leader to astute observer, commentator and thought leader to Artist. I am extremely interested in doing my part to leave the world far better than I found it.
Creativity and innovation are a couple of my key drivers and I am of the firm belief that better is always possible.
