Speaker: Amir Hussain, CEO of Yeme Tech
As founder and CEO of Yeme Architects, Amir has developed it into a visionary, critical thinking group of companies executing community-led, data-informed, built environment solutions designed to meet the challenges and opportunities of a complex new future. Furthermore, Amir’s Board Member positions with the Leeds City Region LEP, Bradford University and Bradford Economic Partnership, (together with a range of other Panel/Board positions) provides comprehensive insight into some of the most intractable contextual issues of our time.
In subsequently founding Yeme Labs and Yeme Tech, Amir has been instrumental in creating technological platform solutions responding to the widespread shortcomings of cohesion, integration and engagement within many communities.
With extensive experience of incorporating technology and data into innovative, built-environment schemes (especially in disadvantaged areas), Amir has created and established nationally recognised principles around community regeneration in the built environment. As a regular contributor to senior-level, policy debates and discussions within national and local Government, Amir brings a uniquely entrepreneurial and personal perspective to the post-COVID recovery debate.
