Regional Business Leader, IBM
Living in United Arab Emirates
EGMiM class of 2014-15
The business world today is a very dynamic, global and interconnected environment. Having the ability to lead diverse teams, gain insight by understanding the cause and interconnected nature of things and making and executing the right strategic decisions requires enhanced tools, style and skills. The Executive GMiM at LSE provides these necessary tools and skills and much more to enhance one’s management style from day one.
LSE’s unique teaching style, global nature of the Executive Master's, the integrated network, its renowned reputation as well as the academic and social sciences leadership are assets to any aspiring global manager. Studying courses such as Economics and Foundations of Management has provided me with deeper insight into the global business landscape but most importantly has enabled me to think more creatively and thus enhancing my management style in the world of business with significant results.
I currently work for IBM as the Regional Business Leader covering the Middle East, Africa and Turkey, where I am responsible for the Enterprise Data Solutions business, which includes Big Data & Analytics solutions. My activities include leading the team and devising business, marketing, sales, enablement, services strategies and overseeing and being part of execution. Outside of IBM, I founded the Libyan Link, an NGO, which played an important humanitarian role in Tunisia and Western Libya during the revolution. The Libyan Link delivered aid to Libyans, organized rescue missions and provided advice to the United Nations, the European Union and the Libyan Executive Council on humanitarian issues during this period. I also co- founded the Libyan Youth Forum, an organization which focuses on empowerment and endorsement of youth across Libya.
