Testimonials

Hanafi was the CEO at Neu Entity when I joined and taught me quite a lot on Project Management and Client Acquisition. We've worked on many projects together and he's a true asset to the team. He's a team player who thinks on his feet and never settles for a no. His ambition and passion for what he does is uncanny, and it's been a pleasure to see his progress and grow more confident in his professional role over time. I thoroughly recommend him for any leadership or project management roles.

Consultant, Neu Entity
My role as a Creative Consultant was a sudden to me as I’ve only had experience as a Graphic Designer. The jump was drastic for me however under the guidance of Hanafi, I was trained and onboarded into the role seamlessly. He gave words of confidence and clarity as one would need from a Senior and a Leader. Hanafi sees the best potential in everyone and he has a talent in drawing it out. The best lesson I’ve learn is to experiment and experience to find the best solution and to empathise with our clients to provide the best for them. It was a great time to be working under Hanafi and with him.
Laila Badriyah
Consultant, Neu Entity
I engaged Hanafi's company Neu Entity three years ago to work on my brand. The company assigned Hanafi to work as a project manager for my company. I recall that throughout the engagement, Hanafi communicated well and was extremely helpful, always being able to attend to my requests in developing the brand. While this may be expected from a typical client-company relationship, what left a greatly positive impression was Hanafi's ability to suggest concrete, implementable, and effective ideas for branding that were highly aligned to my company's requirements. This was all the more impressive given that Hanafi is neither from my industry, nor did he have any prior experience in the specific education sector that I was in, yet he was able to learn quickly and get himself and his team up to speed in providing the best possible service to me, and for my company's branding needs. I wish him the best in his future endeavours, and I believe he would be successful in contributing effectively to any job he is applying for.

My search for an objective point-of-view that is customised to my needs ended when I approached Hanafi for his business coaching sessions. In just a few weeks, he has successfully helped me untangle the messy weeds that have grown due to my lack of confidence, organisation, and forward planning. I now understand my approach to my business better and I know what to expect out of my work in the foreseeable future. I’m confident that I’ll gain much more clarity as time passes thanks to Hanafi’s guidance and reassurance.

Hanafi has been a really great mentor. Like legit hahaha! I have known him since January 2019, and ever since then, he has been guiding me and we stayed in contact till now. I went on to get mentored by him more seriously and alhamdulillah, I have learnt a lot from him, like no kidding! He guided me and ensured that I do things properly. I can sometimes be a bit hard to understand some things so he made sure I understand everything properly before proceeding forward. He answers my questions clearly and if I am still in doubt, he will not hesitate to clarify for me further. Without Hanafi, I don't think I will be where I am today in terms of my entrepreneurship journey! I would like to thank him for everything he has done for me since 2019!
