Tell us a bit about yourself.

I started my journey in 2011 with Procter & Gamble and the rest is history! In my 10+ years of experience, I’ve developed social media strategies, plans, and content for many industries like automotion, real estate, banking, FMCG, fashion, events, beauty, hospitality, e-commerce, just to name a few. Get a glimpse of my journey below:

  • Trained over 100 managers and executives in over 10 companies such as TECOM, Sharjah Airport, Expo Sharjah, EIBFS etc.
  • Won over 10 pitches for big brands such as Renault, Nestle, Emirates NBD, Modon, Al Futtaim, Careem, Barakat
  • As the Social Astronaut, worked with 8 different agencies; Grey Worldwide, TBWA\RAAD, Traffic Digital, Belong Digital, U Experience, Create Media & more.
  • Worked on 6 global hair care and laundry brands under P&G
  • Launched 4 startups on Social Media
  • Won 2 awards with and for the client Emirates NBD.

During my time with EMAAR, I handled 3 major business units: Malls (The Dubai Mall & Marina Mall), Retail & Entertainment( Dubai Ice Rink, KidZania, Reel Cinemas, Gold and Diamond Park) and Real Estate (Dubai Downtown & Burj Khalifa). I managed the complete social media department at EMAAR, with 7 executives and managers reporting directly to me. Through this period, we witnessed an 100% increase in engagement rates on the Downtown and Burj Khalifa accounts.

I’ve worked on all things such as strategy building, content creation, reputation management, research and insights, measurement and reporting and so much more for top companies such as Nissan, Al Naboodah Group and Al Futtaim Retail.
