TIME RESPONSIBILITY BALANCE

The second step on the road to greatness is knowing how to manage your time or more accurately managing yourself.Time is your biggest asset in life; only 500,000 hours for many of us. Only once you can manage yourself can you manage other!

KEY FACTORS FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH

FINANCIAL FREEDOM

The final installment (and probably most anticipated!) in the personal development series is financial freedom. Money is a pivotal component of our day to day lives- sadly financial education is not something widely thought.

This event isn’t a get rich quick scheme or how to become rich workshop but simply an insight into the fundamentals of cash flow.

Adeel Anwar
Founder

Chemical Engineer | Scientific Researcher | Social Entrepreneur

Brief biography

Adeel was born (Oct 1990) in Lahore, the capital city of arts, culture, and history of Pakistan. Nine months after he moved to and resided in Southern Ireland (Dublin, Sligo and Galway) where his father worked as a junior doctor. He lived there until the age of 6 before returning to Lahore to stay with his grandparents for a year; before once again moving to the UK in 1997- where he has lived in Birmingham, Bolton and eventually Oldham.

He underwent his higher education in Oldham at The Hulme Grammar Schools and Sixth Form where he won numerous awards including The Young Student of Year (Oldham and Rochdale) for his pivotal role as the manging director of a Young Enterprise company by the name of Tiamo. Upon completion of his A-Levels he decided to peruse his interest in the energy sector, particularly in renewable and sustainable technologies, by undertaking Chemical Engineering with Business Management at The University of Manchester in 2008. Having graduated with a First Class MEng (Honours) degree in 2012 he was offered a PhD scholarship from EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) and given the prestigious PDS Award (President’s Doctoral Scholar)- awarded to the top 3% of researchers at The University of Manchester. He segued straight into the PhD research topic of “Enhancing the cold flow properties of biodiesel via heterogeneous catalysis” where he went on to spend the next four years of his life, contributing at international conferences and through a review article paper in the Fuel journal. His research endeavoured to search for and synthesise a renewable fuel source in the form of biodiesel from waste materials and non-edible crops to address environmental and social welfare concerns associated with geo-political instability, dwindling petrochemical resources and global warming.

During his eight-year stint in academia, his extracurricular activities involved working closely with NGO charities such as UNICEF as well as other local community organisations. When he wasn’t in the lab, library or teaching he was found delivering inspiring and empowering seminars on research and enterprise, playing football, hockey, cricket, badminton and globe-trotting!

Alongside his PhD he undertook the challenge of strengthening academia and bio based research by establishing an academic based social enterprise known as BREC (later BioREC- see BioREC.net). Having obtained his Doctorate of Philosophy in 2016, he is now focusing his energies on realising his dreams through two of his latest and most exciting entrepreneurial ventures; as the CEO of Bio-economy Consultancy and the founder of The Academy of Champions.

Having been blessed with so much, he realises that he has a huge responsibility and is likely to be subject great accountability. For him this is just the beginning and would welcome you all to be a part of his lifes’ journey.

“I follow the Way of Love, and where Love’s caravan takes its path, there is my religion, my faith.”
