AIESEC and Alumni experience
Have not been directly involved but familiar with the organization and its goals, given that my colleagues have served in the organization

Farhan Mirza has been an excolleague and mentor to me. I have know Farhan for more than 10 years.

Diversity in a global organization like AISEC, would naturally benefit from Farhan’s diverse background of having lived on 4 continents and worked in several countries. Furthermore, taking data from all quarters and integrating towards a common solution, is a solid attribute of Farhan. Lastly, mentoring across borders and pulling support for the organization’s causes, from across continents is his natural strength.

Farhan is a high energy and high passion individual. His drive for excellence in thinking creatively, with emphasis on laser sharp execution gives an added advantage. Farhan has a vast network of resources and his Strategic, Marketing and Fund Raising skills are truly formidable.
