Rise above the Odds and Unleash the Power of Resilience: Fireside Chat with Azeem Amir
In a world where challenges can often seem overwhelming, and adversity can hinder our success, there exists an unwavering spirit that defies all odds - the spirit of resilience. Join us at "Rise Above the Odds and Unleash the Power of Resilience" an event designed to inspire and empower young professionals to face life's challenges with confidence and determination.
Our speaker for this event is Azeem Amir, an individual who has triumphed over life's obstacles. Azeem, who has been visually impaired since birth, has never let it be a barrier to success. He plays Blind Football professionally for the England blind football team and is working towards achieving international success, with the team currently in preparation for qualification to the 2024 Paris Paralympic Games.
Beyond his achievements on the football field, Azeem's fearless spirit has led him to become a global ambassador for brands such as Nike and Santander, leading on impactful campaigns. He has also dedicated himself as an ambassador for several disability awareness charities and organisations and through public speaking engagements, including inspiring TED Talks, coaching, and workshops, Azeem aims to empower as many young people as possible to achieve their own versions of success.
In this fireside chat with Azeem Amir, the audience will learn about the struggles he encountered as a blind athlete aspiring to play professional football, the scepticism and doubt he faced from others, and the personal battles he fought to prove that limitations are mere illusions. His story highlights the power of resilience, determination and will show the audience that by harnessing these two qualities, you can view challenges as stepping stones rather than barriers, on the path to success!
Join us and be inspired by Azeem Amir’s remarkable journey.
