Responsibilities: Premises, Health & Safety Committee & Early Years Teams
After leaving University with a BA in Economics and Statistics, I joined KPMG in Abu Dhabi as an Intern Auditor but it was clear even then, that I enjoyed interacting with people more than account books and that was the beginning of a wonderful career that spans just a little under 20 years!
I joined Ziff Davis Middle East, one of the largest IT publishing house in the world as an Account Manager and loved learning about the operations of a new industry and managing clients in over 60 countries in the Middle and Near East. After almost 3 years in the IT domain, I joined The Forbes Group in a similar capacity but once again the environment was more business oriented than technology – and I loved learning something new!
An exciting opportunity with Teradata Corporation as their Northern Europe Marketing and Public Relations Manager not only allowed me to learn something new but to use my skills at managing people with multicultural and multi-ethnic backgrounds to work together as a team and achieve set targets in addition to getting our message across to various media channels, publications and blogs in Northern Europe.
I'm currently a full time mum to my daughter Ariana who is at Acorn and I can honestly say, this is the best job ever!
