1- In no more than three sentences, please explain what you do
I’m a business owner running a design and print consultancy. But alongside my day job, I work on numerous projects that include, organizing local blood drives, promoting grass roots football and cricket and working with national charities such as Sport Relief & Sewa Day.
2- Who inspires you?
Like most people throughout my adult life, I’ve been inspired by numerous people including historic figureheads, sport personalities, my parents but to name a few. But if I had to single out one personality trait that inspires me, it would be selfless service. Displaying compassion and carrying out acts of kindness for the greater good. Those who help others even when they have nothing to gain, reaching out a helping hand simply because it’s the right thing to do.
3- What is the biggest change you want to see in the world?
In this day and age we are cash rich, but time poor. I’d love to see more people to take time out to help and support others. I feel it’s our duty as human beings to have pure hearts and as Gandhi explained to, ‘Be the change we want to see in the world.’ I believe that if we lead by example and create more leaders in the process that together we can achieve great things.
4- What would you like to be remembered for?
I don’t want people to remember me specifically; I want them to remember that good people exist and it’s not difficult to be one of them. I’d like people to remember what I have been trying to bring out in others. I believe everybody has a natural tendency to help those in need, some just require more of an extraction than others.
5- What is the most interesting new idea you’ve come across in the past year?
I’ve recently been awarded a badge from the blood service for donating for the 50th time. It’s a cause I’ve always been very passionate about. Giving an hour of my time costs nothing and could be saving the life of a family member, a friend, a colleague or even a complete stranger!
I’ve been really impressed with the NHS’ recent Missing Types and Bleed for England campaign, championing the cause and converting more to join the effort. It just goes to show all people need is inspiration, a spark to ignite what’s always been in them.
6- Finally, how can people engage with your work if they’d like to learn more/help?
I’ve organized blood drives, I’m a local champion for Sport Relief and I’d be happy to share my experiences and advice for those who are interested. The easiest way to find out more about is to contact me on via Muks@nscmedia.com or @MuksRabadia on twitter.
