The Working Age forum Presents Naqi Rizvi

London Vision is proud to present WAF member Naqi Rizvi at our September event. Naqi Rizvi is an engineer by qualification, a banker by profession and a sportsman by passion. He not only completed his undergraduate and master’s degrees in engineering with good grades – despite the odds – but also went on to secure a job with a world-renowned bank and now works in Canary Wharf.

He is passionate about sports and is presently ranked third in the world in the men’s category of blind tennis.

Naqi is passionate about spreading the message of hope and perseverance and has spoken at several events including two TEDx talks and conferences in Malaysia and Oman. He is very keen to make a difference to the world around him and won a global diversity award with Barclays in 2018.
