What do you do?
I am senior IT Consultant working for Saudi Aramco, biggest oil company in middle east if not in the world, and also a freelance consultant to number of Saudi companies, overseeing their IT solutions and technologies.
What do you see as the biggest opportunity in your industry?
Every business problem or challenge is an opportunity, be it small or large.
What impact will changes in your industry have on consumers? the world?
A very positive change…Information Technology is an integral part of every industry, and it is a corner stone in the success of every business. Businesses, who fail to recognize the power of IT as an enabler, will diminish sooner or later and cannot hold their success or position in the market.
What is your biggest goal right now?
Free myself to develop and market my own ideas and projects.
What kind of support or types of people do you need to accelerate your success?
People who share with me the same vision, commitment, dedication. People who add value and complement my shortcomings.
What makes you or your work different from everybody else?
Commitment and Discipline…Commitment to be up-to-date on technologies and the Discipline to live up to my commitment. I live with two mantras: 1) “Assume Nothing, and Question Everything. Assumption is the mother of all mistakes.” and 2) “Once a task is begun, never leave it until it is done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all”.
