I am currently based in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I have lived in the UAE for seven years. I have extensive experience and background in food and beverage. I transferred to HR as the Assistant Learning & Development Manager. I have the operations background as well as training. In food and beverage it is very important to always focus on training of your team hence the leap to my current position was not a big one. I enjoy conducting trainings and helping those to develop themselves. I am passionate about people thus the reason I am always working along side them.
