“Let’s love the world together…” Danish Ahmed is a blind, Pakistani albino. Really, that’s who he is. He’s an entrepreneur, inspirational speaker, and best-selling author of “A Dictionary of Distinctions” (also translated into Mandarin). He has also written hundreds of articles on personal and professional development.
Today Danish produces inspirational entertainment, overrides a multi-million dollar network marketing organization, and is the Leader of the Party for People with Special Needs.
In the arts, Danish’s performances range from spoken word to contact improvisational dance, from sketch comedy to stand-up, and from being a television special skills extra to co-producing a Broadway-style musical. You can see him regularly at Second City, Toastmasters, various Film Festivals, and his own branded events.
On a personal side, Danish advocates for and is an activist in Mental Health/Wellness and medicinal marijuana.
In his presentations, Danish draws upon his life experience as an albino and legally blind Pakistani immigrant, who arrived in Canada with his family at age four. Growing up in an impoverished area of downtown Toronto, he overcame many challenges including drug-treated depression and thoughts of suicide, until his amazing turnaround at age of fourteen, through a motivational infomercial.
Danish’s vision is to help transform the lives of millions of people around the world through a new media genre — the convergence of entertainment and inspiration. For example, Danish produced “What is Love?”, a three minute movie on the Internet, now seen by over one million people across 112 countries. Other movies Danish has produced include “Forgiveness”, “Journey of Attraction”, and “Our World” (translated into 15 languages).
Danish Ahmed worked with Stuart Knight to produce two hit musicals, I DECIDE and SHIFT. Both shows incorporated theatre, spoken word, slam poetry, beat-boxing, improv, song, dance, and multi-media, “I DECIDE” was an urban musical that ran for three-and-half years, attracting hundreds of people each week, and receiving rave reviews from The Toronto Star, The Globe & Mail, and The National Post.
Danish Ahmed has accomplished many firsts. He was designing curricula and teaching by the time he was fifteen years of age. He co-developed a revolutionary Internet technology that became the foundation of a $1.5 million dot-com startup. By age twenty-three, he had consulted with leading companies and had worked in the industries of stock market analysis, geographic information systems, and international trade. Danish was also involved in obtaining a U.S. patent in the area of biotechnology. Although Danish’s skill is technical, his passion is people — so he continually seeks to integrate and implement peak-performance technologies within himself, his family, his co-workers, and his community.
For twenty years, Danish has enrolled himself into learning from every possible success coach. His experience includes programs by Dr. John Gray, Anthony Robbins, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Accelerated Learning, Sterling Institute of Relationships, Toastmasters, T. Harv Eker, Outward Bound, Up With People, the Sedona Method, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and The Landmark Forum. He has also interviewed stars from “The Secret”, including Bob Proctor and James Arthur Ray.
His personal interest in politics, dance, improv, martial arts, and spirituality, has led him to travel around North America and to countries such as France, Hungary, Cuba, Russia, and Saudi Arabia. From visiting the White House on numerous occasions to hand-gliding over Ontario, Danish draws on his diversity of experiences to give his audiences a unique dose of empowerment that can’t be found elsewhere.
Danish strives to create communities that integrate transformation with social events. Join us on Facebook to find out about our upcoming events.
