Afzal has spoken at some of the most prestigious UK universities, a broad array of university society events, social enterprises and charities. Topics covered range from demystifying the myths behind landing insight weeks, internships and full-time offers at investment banks, consulting organisations and other financial institutions to sharing his story and background having grown up in a council estate and worked his way into numerous leading financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs, BlackRock, PwC and others.
Afzal's high level approach to explaining key concepts allow millennial audiences, in particular, to follow and understand him well.
What's more, having worked with young people (especially from disadvantaged backgrounds and marginalised communities) for over a decade outside of his career in investment banking Afzal is regularly recognised as being extremely relatable, informal, relevant and inspiring.
