Who is Abdul Shakur?
Apart from wanting to change my life, I got into the business because growing up I was surrounded by debt and being prematurely born I knew I could never do any physical labour. Ever since my purpose has been to continue breaking down the glass ceiling for business owners to grow using the power of social media.
During my 10+ years as a young entrepreneur, I have landed contracts & partnerships with corporate brands like Natwest, Zoho & British Telecom. The use of social media has allowed me to create communities with numbers of 20,000+ people which help me both in business and raising millions in private equity investments.
Featured in BBC, 100+ industry events and leading podcasts I am a confident and experienced keynote speaker making an impact by bringing experience and commercial knowledge/strategy to the table. My work seeks to help service providers and consultants increase sales using social media.
What I take my clients through
The word around town - You can find these testimonials on my Linkedin
Director - Varsity Finance
From the moment I met with Abdul, I could appreciate not only his eloquence but his sheer ora to capture the attention of those around him.
His ongoing professionalism and ability to adapt within any industry clearly means that both Abdul and his firm can work towards growing an audience to suit most firms, but with a particular lean towards the Property Market.
It was therefore only a matter of time before my husband and I asked that he joins us and engages with our firm Varsity Finance, with the view to creating an impact across all social platforms and expand our clientele.
So if you are looking to increase your audience and grow your business whilst still retaining that personal touch, then talk to Abdul and his team.
