Tell us about your experience and time in the Middle East
I was working in UK and was the No 1 Sales executive for Oracle in the UK and second in the world. I was then brought to Dubai to work with Oracle who headhunted me for the Middle East set up. It got me thinking why some sales people were successful and some not so with equal training and opportunities. This led me to explore the world of NLP, neuroscience, Hypnosis and formed Mind –Body- Dynamix in 1999
Since then, I have worked with a great many companies and coached many hundreds of executives, my counseling work has given me the opportunity to have experienced every challenge that that humans can possibly encounter, including instances of murder when working with prisoners.
