Candace Faber
We worked together  •  CEO, Whoa Strategies. Previously Foreign Service Officer, U.S. Department of State. University of Washington grad. Georgetown grad.
Ajani is thoughtful, creative, energetic, balanced, and extraordinarily insightful. As a diplomat, he is responsible for some of the most in ... novative programs the U.S. government has run abroad. In addition to his expertise on international affairs and government relations, Ajani is also an excellent public speaker who would be a great coach for pitches, presentations, and marketing.

They're my school  •  GRE Instructor, Kaplan and Founder, BeTheHill. Stanford grad. Carnegie Mellon grad.
Ajani has traveled the world on the behalf of the US State department, spending time in a variety of countries. His international expertise ... is both broad and deep, and because of the places where he's spent the most time, he understands intimately the mechanisms by which poverty and economic empowerment emerge.

I have known Ajani over the past 14 years in the context of a Stanford classmate and colleague. Ajani has consistently conducted himself wi ... th the highest standards of professionalism. Importantly, given the prevailing and current apprehension about ethical issues and standards, Ajani always demonstrated an adherence to a positive value system and high personal and professional ethics. What is especially unique about Ajani is his desire to pursue the highest levels of achievement even if it means working beyond normal expectations. I am not certain when this desire evolved but certainly as a member of a supportive and loving family, it is clear that a commitment to family, community, public and charitable service is part of the family’s value system Ajani’s principal strengths and talents include discretionary decision making capability, leadership talent, and the ability to understand complex issues. He also has the facility to demonstrate intellectual ability without making colleagues, peers, or those with lesser abilities feel inferior. Ajani has first-rate verbal and written communication skills. He has also coordinated task completion in complex and highly visible situations. He has been recognized for his abilities with various honors and awards. Importantly, Ajani presents well without a swaggering, full of himself attitude. I am not aware of any areas where Ajani needs to improve in order to have a successful and effective advisor. He appears to have an excellent “life” perspective. I believe this is something that will be continued throughout the period of his professional development and, in fact, will be a constant in his work-life balance equation.
