The Power of Add-Venture


Through his high-energy motivational keynotes at corporate events, Reza uses his record-breaking journeys to demonstrate the key qualities necessary for success, including personal motivation, resilience and the tapping of potential.

Reza’s authentic message resonates with corporate audiences - before his life of adventure, he spent a decade working for leading companies in the London Financial Market. Using his own story as a case study, Reza provides relatable lessons to businesses, of how by adding-venture he managed to transform himself from an apathetic employee stuck in a rut to a corporate intrepreneur who undertook and executed major projects, and then later transformed himself even further into a serial entrepreneur.

He now produces and presents successful television series which have sold around the world. His approach is straightforward: “Add-venture”. Facing unexpected obstacles creates ownership, resilience, trains problem-solving and unleashes potential. This ownership is fundamental in creating motivation which by definition is “the reason to take action”.
