About Wajdi

I'm a solutions-focused professional who adamantly believes in the power of incorporating evidence-based cognitive-behavioral (CBT) strategies into a learning-experience-design (LXD) aimed at evoking positive, holistic wellness transformation. I realize that many consumers feel isolated, disconnected from their interests, their goals, their communities, families, and globe. I recognize that many consumers are eager to engage in brief, personalized interventions that are not only relevant to their individual needs but also, accessible, solutions-focused and of course, effective. I believe in the transformative power of holistic wellness. I believe in the importance of connection. I believe in social impact and the role business can play in challenging and ameliorating our world's social issues.
