About Azfar Rizvi

STRATEGY. BRANDING. CONTENT. POLICY

I am an award-winning creative director whose work has been called ‘poignant’ by the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. In 2019, Rolling Stone Magazine referred to my work as ‘transformative’. These days, I am a consulting writer for a television series which is ‘unabashedly idealistic’; according to NPR.

My passion for using ‘content as a force for good’ has been paramount throughout my career.

Over the past 15 years, my clients have included Silicon Valley giants, Hollywood shops, UN agencies, News networks, and the US State Department. I have produced radio, news/current affairs content, taught journalism/filmmaking at universities, and produced content for Google, CNN, BBC, Lionsgate Films, and Al Jazeera Network.

My recent work focuses on enabling internet and tech firms leverage efficient trust and policy, and content paradigms to mitigate online abuse, extremism, radicalization and hate speech. I am a sought-after speaker at entrepreneurship, filmmaking, and mentorship events, and I have worked across Syria, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, South Korea, United States, Canada, and Afghanistan.

“That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.”

“I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.”
