This catapulted him to develop a mobile tech startup where he raised +$70K in a crowdfunding campaign.

Built on thirteen years of experience building successful teams, Fahd identified the tried and true ingredient that set high performing teams apart from competitors — they had leaders who prioritized team performance over individual success. He named them Unicorn Leaders. Delivered through captivating and actionable keynotes, Fahd now retrains managers to become architects of effective teams through his principle of Unicorn Leadership.
