Naheem Bashir

Before joining Kaleidoscope, Naheem completed his Experimental Psychology PhD at University College London. His thesis was entitled: “Using transcranial direct current stimulation to improve speech processes in typical speakers and people who stammer”. If you have an afternoon free, ask him about it.

Naheem also has a stammer, which funnily enough, he doesn’t stop talking about. He is a trustee of Stamma and he has also co-led a support group for people who stammer since 2014. He is passionate about using his experiences of living with a speech disorder to inspire and support others, stammer or not, to find their voice, recognise its power and use it to create a better world for themselves and other people.

He has a wide range of interests which include healthcare tech and tech for good; behaviour change; organisational systems and processes; research and evaluation; public and mental health, including isolation and loneliness. Essentially, he believes everything can be interesting if you ask the right questions.

Naheem enjoys depressing cinema; building a 20% read Kindle library; watching and performing “comedy” at open mic nights; boxing and mixed martial arts because hitting things is great exercise; and anything to do with virtual reality.
