About Shezad

Shezad Nawab is a dynamic entrepreneur successfully running six companies based on global property, events, business consultancy and more.  He was born and raised in Birmingham, providing support to business start-ups for more than 17 years.  He was born deaf so he understands the problems and opportunities that are presented to the deaf community first hand.  Thus, he uses British Sign Language to help the deaf and others in the business community by coaching them how to effectively market their brand and deal with management problems among other things.  He has been involved in creating new business prospects for the deaf community all over the globe and is aspiring to help those who want to start their own business.

As a child, he always dreamed of becoming a pilot, but being deaf it was not possible.  This was the initial step towards accepting his limitations and giving up on certain dreams.  He clearly understands the frustration, which the deaf community faces while operating in the business world.  He knows from his life that unpredicted roadblocks can appear during any task.  He has opened his door for deaf entrepreneurs and provided them with sign language interpretation. Over the years, he has reached different horizons to develop as a global figure enduring to be devoted to both, the deaf and the business community.

Shezad is an award-winning entrepreneur and each award celebrates his dedication, hard work, and success in business.  His most prominent awards include:

  1. Ummul Mu’minin Khadijah Award for Excellence in Enterprise, 2018.
  2. Alumni of the Year 2017 in the field of Enterprise and Innovation.

With his services, he is connecting the deaf community to the mainstream business arena. When asked about how he coped with the challenges he faced, Shezad says:

“Being deaf has its challenges, but it should not prevent you from achieving your dream. If you are deaf and hardworking, you can create your own business”

In his opinion, gaining experience is an ideal way of preparing yourself for entrepreneurship.  It definitely takes time to create a new start-up but by constantly learning and perseverance, you will succeed.  As a deaf child, his father was always concerned about his future. However, being deaf did not stop him from unlocking future potential.  He took inspiration from his father who was the owner of a Post Office Branch; and that along with his deafness shaped his perspective of the world and opened up new realms.
