My media profile and business, political and economic expertise has been utilised by the UK Government as their Dealmaker covering Asia and Middle East for over a decade. As the senior and longest serving member of a 15-20 strong team, we've delivered over £1BN of investment to the UK since 2005. Previously appointed by the Prime Minister to advise on policies for closer ties between the UK and India, and formerly working in Congress for Hon Eliot Engel, I have utilised my training as a barrister for advocating policies for wealth creation, diversity whilst engaging legislators and policy-makers.

I make frequent appearances, including as host on Bloomberg and CNBC, on international prime time television as a contributor to global business discussions inspiring pride in entrepreneurship, especially women entrepreneurs and inter-faith diversity benefits, including BBC’s Newsnight, and Bloomberg, CNN, Sky Business News, CNBC, Channel 4 and US / UK radio. I have written over 200 columns for the Financial Times, and built a worldwide reputation as an authority on economic, business, political issues, with my best-selling books on business, entrepreneurship topping the charts in UK and international Amazon stores and my political and economic paper review on BBC World TV reaching 300m viewers.

I have been sought-out by international corporate giants, including Barclays, Lloyds Bank, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs and ICICI Bank, as an industry-recognised expert, to deliver advice at C-level on the global economy and growth strategies. As a businessman I built a successful private equity fund with a record of penetrative analysis of FTSE 100, 250, mid-cap companies, as well as global companies and economics and advising investors on successful strategies – with a track record commended by FT.
