1. Tell us about you, your experience and time in the Middle East.
I have over 30 years of experience internationally, with over 26 here in the Middle East. I have worked across 15 countries, with multinationals, regional / local corporates in multiple disciplines. Consulting, across human development verticals. It has been an amazing journey. The Middle East is a rich tapestry and it is a great opportunity to experience it in its most dynamic market, Dubai.
2. How would you describe the culture of your business?
Open, Friendly, Evolving & Flexible. We partner with our client organizations and help them beyond the obvious. Our innovative approaches have helped clients cross over and achieve their desired results.
3. How easy is it for you to get direct access to the decision makers in your company?
In one word, VERY.
4. What are your biggest challenges in the next 5 years?
The Middle East is evolving at a breakneck pace. If you do not keep up, it’s over. Opportunities are everywhere, as are pitfalls. One needs to roll their sleeves up and be ready for the proverbial knock on your door. But, if that does not happen, create, evolve, innovate.
5. What is your personal philosophy?
Collaborate: There are enough opportunities out there. As a team, we all win.
Evolve: What you know today, is fast becoming obsolete. We are not prepared for the world that awaits us. Keep up with changes or prepare to become irrelevant. The only other way is to become the change.
Enjoy life: You have but one!
