Right after A-levels I spent a few years getting experience in several different fields from working as an Assistant Director for Osman Khalid Butt’s Living picture productions doing commercial theatre, starting a band, playing gigs all over the country getting nominated for best album of the year at the Lux Style awards, being a corporate brand ambassador for Philip Morris to opening and running a successful food business -The Lime Tree, a cafe which also branched into catering. For the past 3-4 years i have been working as a program manager at Kuch Khaas as well as working on completing my ACCA. I’m part qualified and have also gotten my Bsc in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes. My work at KK entails promotion of arts and culture, by developing various formats and activities, working together with embassies, other similar and like-minded organizations and partners, working on campaigns & projects, from planning & budgeting to execution & reporting - directly to the CEO and to all other stakeholders.
I am used to setting up projects from scratch. I have a diverse experience of project management, working with youth, with senior citizens, with artisans with the needy and under-served. Building relationships with organizations, universities, nurturing and managing talent, being innovative in ways to provide meaningful entertainment to the local community and empowering people. I have always maintained good relationships with everyone i have worked with. I’m a good listener and i always try to put myself in other people’s shoes when dealing with conflict. Being an all-rounder in the past has helped me develop a diverse skill-set for an out-of-the-box approach to problem solving so i find solutions instead of just stating problems. I always adhere to timelines and plan well in advance. I’m organized and try to keep all the stakeholders on the same page. But having said that i’m a team player and collaborations have always been my bread and butter.
