Aidan Zizys

Aidan joined Quay Asia for a short-term assignment as part of our start-up team. He spent three months in Nairobi before arriving in Dhaka. Aidan heads back to his home in Toronto this month.

Aidan made an incredible contribution to our analysis of the labour market in Bangladesh. He designed Quay Asia’s monthly post series, “Issues in the Labour Market,” and went on to write the first three of twelve articles, which focused on the transitions between school and work.

“The Nation’s Children” was the second in our Fifty Series. Aidan talked to Mazharul Haque Mintu one of Bangladesh’s freedom fighters from the 1971 Liberation War. Recording Mintu’s memories of Bangabandu’s return to the newly liberated Bangladesh in 1972, Aidan made a video of Mintu’s vivid recollections.

Aidan diligently captured articles in the Bangladesh press about the labour market, workforce development and skills training every week in Quay Asia’s What the Papers Say series.

We’ll miss Aidan and wish him the best of luck in the next phase of his career.
