I have been working as a financial controller in Europe and the Middle East for 10 years.

Who and what inspire you?
In general, I’m usually inspired by business owners who had the guts and courage to set up their own business. I mentioned Leila Janah below because I love the idea of social entrepreneurship.
Which companies and creatives do you admire and why?
Samasource and LXMI (Founder Leila Janah) – Leila Janah is an entrepreneur who set up multiple businesses with extensive social impact. I think her work is truly remarkable. Other companies I like are KIVA, Mindvalley or TOMS shoes.
What three items can you live without?
Was this supposed to be “can you NOT live without”? If so, I can’t live without my Macbook, coffee, and chocolate. I CAN live without TV, bookshelves and disposable things (ie. cups, straws, plates etc).
What do like about your work? and why?
I believe as a financial controller I have made an impact on businesses I worked for and with. The benefits are often tangible and easy to notice. Additionally, I really like educating people and I care about their professional development which is often a big part of this job. I get to spend a lot of time with business owners and discuss how they can run their businesses more efficiently and profitably!
What are your three motivating triggers?
Recognition, Inspiring and educating others, money
How can the community get involved in your business? What do you expect from YesGulf Community?
Spread the word about talks, workshops I do; invite me to do a talk or a workshop; offer ideas on what they would like to hear and learn about; fill in a survey.
What do you believe can be done in UAE to make business prosper?
From my perspective, I think there is still an education required for many business owners. I believe that many of them here have great ideas and vision for their businesses but maybe lack some basics, management and planning skills (also finance).
