Partnerships Manager

Ahmad Zaid Zulkifli

Ahmad Zaid is currently a Partnerships Manager at Common Purpose Asia Pacific. Through his work at Common Purpose, Zaid strives to build meaningful partnerships and communities across the region to achieve positive change – together. 

Previously, Zaid was part of the leadership team at Majulah Community – a youth development non-profit in Singapore – as the Chief Partnership Officer. Working in a small and young team and navigating the challenges that come was an exercise in learning about leadership on the go. Above all, it made him realize that true leadership is not about your position, but about leading beyond authority. 

Zaid graduated from International Islamic University Malaysia where he majored in Political Science. It was there as well that he began his passion for serving marginalized communities, working with refugees in Kuala Lumpur. Zaid also has experience in mentoring, facilitating design thinking workshops and is a huge fan of coffee and cheesecakes.
