“Fast emerging as a young
Leonardo Da Vinci”
Nasser D. Khalili
Having studied at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), Waqās was appointed as Chair of the Commonwealth’s Global Citizenship Education panel, which developed a module that is being rolled out to tertiary education institutions across developing countries. He is also developing a polymathic curriculum for high school students and autodidacts, the framework for which was published in The Polymath (Wiley 2019).
As a professional speaker with Kruger Cowne, Waqās speaks about each of these domains with authority; but above all, he is passionate about how such seemingly unrelated fields can actually serve to inform one another, often providing unique creative insights that would be unimaginable through hyper-specialization.
“Increasingly, the solutions to problems are found at the intersection of multiple fields… experts in highly specialised fields can be part of a team, but the team leader needs to bridge With eloquence, clarity and authority, Waqas made a powerful case for multi-dimensional thinking as essential to personal fulfilment and collective problem-solving in the 21st century fields.”
