Rafik Riad

Strategic Alliances Chair

After 10 years in the field of international development working on policy design and project implementation, including projects with the UK Department for International Development and the Canadian International Development Agency, Rafik had developed an insider’s view of sustainable development and the fight against poverty. Rafik’s appreciation for social enterprise as a business model that circumvents both the volatility of traditional development frameworks and the shortcomings of conventional corporate models led him to found Buy Good. Feel Good., a platform for promoting and supporting businesses as a force for good. Rafik holds an MA in Tourism, Environment and Development from King’s College London.
