We empower individuals with opportunities to connect with and learn from some of the best in their field so that they can acquire the tools and confidence to create a career they want, not a career they have to settle for - that may involve overcoming personal barriers, setting up a dream business or breaking through glass ceilings.
A qualified professional Career Coach and the founder of Thrive, Farida previously spent a decade as a corporate communications specialist in the UK, Asia and Middle East.
Thrive is inspired by Farida’s personal career journey where, while navigating the ups and downs of a career change with a young family in tow, she found a lack of inspirational, relatable, supportive voices. This spurred Farida to create an experiential platform, influenced by powerful TED-like talks with a focus on the world of work - particularly from a female perspective - that she felt was deeply needed.
Farida’s passion to provide a megaphone for individuals to share their personal stories and strive for better is at the core of Thrive’s growth and success.
