Abdul is a young professional who has run different ventures and was a Birmingham Young Professional of the Year finalist - competing with employees of some of the city's top firms.

My passion came from the people who were around me and said you won’t make it anywhere, you shall be working in the lowest paid job. Your aims to become successful shall not be achieved!

I turned that around to becoming a Marketing Consultant and, after research and endless nights of following brands and strategies, I'd learnt some history and some modern changes.

Marketing Consultancy fits my personality and so it shined through to many others!

Follow my journey as I set out to become the marketing consultant to bring change as I speak to some of the largest brands in the world!

The BBC's Alex Butler was pleasantly surprised by Abdul's natural entrepreneurial spirit and shared some insights on marketing and communicating his activities.
