Growing up I was always told that no one was good at everything but with a little bit of patience and practice you can be great at anything. Currently still on the road less traveled to being great at anything, I've learnt that one of my greatest attributes is my personality.
Starting my career in client servicing in Dubai has been an amazing opportunity. Everyone experiences an event in their own way, working in such a diverse market I have had the chance to learn about customer engagement and brand management, understanding that no matter how diverse we may be at the end of the day we can create an experience that brings us together.
