About me...

I started my speaking career as a Motivational Speaker, Business Coach and Entrepreneur and in that capacity I take the audience on a roller coaster ride beginning with when I had nothing as a child and left school with no qualifications, to when I began to transform my life at the age of 18 to the invigorating place where I find myself right now.
Along the way, I became aware that my audiences were very interested in how and why my family had  uprooted themselves from India to make a new life in the UK.  So I have now created a talk that, although inspirational in the story it tells, is merely an informative  entertainment with a very  light-hearted approach, rather than to inspire at a motivational level.

About my Talks...

The presentations last for 30 to 45 minutes (depending on what is required) and are followed by a 15 minutes Question and Answer session. These presentations can be given in a stand-alone format or, if your venue has the necessary equipment I am happy to deliver a Power Point presentation.


My fee is £50.00 for groups of up to 50 people where the venue is within 15 miles of my home address in Perry Barr, Birmingham. For a larger audience please contact me to discuss.
When the venue is more than 15 miles from my home, I charge 45p per mile travel expenses. I am happy to speak ANYWHERE in the UK – however additional costs may apply if an overnight stay is necessary.

My Contact Details:


From the British Raj 1919 to Birmingham Present Day

This talk is based  on how my father and mother uprooted their lives and came to England back in the 1950’s.  I will start the talk briefly, back in the time of their parents – my grandparents – and the life they lived during the days of the British Raj when India was ruled by the British Crown (from 1858 to 1947).  We will move on to my parent’s lives, their brave decision to leave Bangladesh to create a new life in a foreign land and their dream of making a home fit for their future children there. The twists and turns of my own life…. and I will pause awhile to explain how very different my life would have been if my parents had chosen to stay in their own country and I had been born in Bangladesh.

This is a stand alone talk – I don’t need any equipment.


The Formula for Success

Sadly, most people do not know the Formula for Success and my talk is based on the journey of my life. You will travel with me along a road full of ups and downs,  highs and lows,  expectations, disappointments, wins, losses and seemingly, always another twist or turn before things fall into place and the rainbow’s end is there at my feet. I hope to inspire people from all walks of life, illustrating that success IS achievable. In my talk there will be guidance, information, audience participation, Q&A and above all,  humour and the ‘feel-good-factor’.

Eye of the Tiger

First, let me explain what this talk’s title  “Eye of the Tiger” means.  When you set your goal on something that you really want and then you go out to get it like a tiger would go after its prey, with relentless  determination – that’s The Eye of the Tiger!

No matter who you are, where you are from or what age you are, there may be something in your heart, mind and soul that you want so badly…… but SOMETHING IS HOLDING YOU BACK.
Why don’t you let go of your apprehensions and fears so that you can set yourself free to achieve your goal?’  Learn how to gain this freedom for yourself and take advantage of the fact that you don’t have to do this alone, you can invite the people  who are close to you and those that you love to share your journey and allow them to help, encourage and support you along the way.
It is all about learning to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, accepting the person you are and then relaxing into your journey so that you can enjoy the ride and see the amazing places where it will take you.
