"I have known Shakil for over three years.
We first met when I was a judge for the CIPD, HR team of the year. It was evident, then, that Shakil was a very capable and inspirational leader.
My only disappointment is that my term as a Non-Exec on the Board of the CIPD was ending when Shakil's started.
He is a passionate, ethical and vision driven individual and will bring significant value to whatever/wherever his endeavours take him".
