Having spent 10+ years researching and building extraordinary teams, Fahd Alhattab found the key ingredient that sets high-performing teams apart — their leaders prioritize team performance over individual success. He calls them “unicorn leaders”. A millennial workplace expert who specializes in transformative leadership and team dynamics, Alhattab shows audiences how to become the architect of effective teams through his principles of unicorn leadership.
Alhattab has spoken to more than 70,000 people across North America on leadership and has been named a “Rising Star Speaker” and “Most Entertaining Speaker” by the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers. Through his consultancy, Unicorn Labs, Alhattab also offers customized training programs and team-building retreats geared towards upgrading staff and managers into self-driven leaders.
Alhattab’s personal path to leadership began with philanthropy. Compelled by his background as an at-risk immigrant from a low-income family, he raised over $1 million for local charities and founded a camp for underprivileged children. He was awarded Canada’s Top 20 Under 20 Award in recognition of his work. Alhattab’s furthered his passion for leadership and entrepreneurship in university, where he launched a student entrepreneurship centre while serving as president of the student union. It has since founded more than 50 student startups and helped raise over $450,000 in seed capital.
