What are the region-specific challenges when implementing new technologies in the Middle East ?
The region is actually going through huge shift to a digital era from predominantly a trade focused market and one of the biggest challenges of this region lies in its uniqueness of being a melting pot to many cultures and nationalities living together . So , from a regulatory and legal perspective the regulator has to keep in mind the global landscape and also sense and sensibilities of the region . The region has also been very open to ideas both from Asia and the West and hence , it ’ s in the phase of identifying what might be best suited for itself given the diverse demographics and strategic location on the globe .

What advice would you offer somebody aspiring to obtain C-level position in your industry ?
‘ Curiosity is the key ’ and ‘ there can be multiple right ways of doing the same thing ’. Don ’ t stop being curious and don ’ t take instructions or advice on face value . ‘ We have always done it this way ’ is a bigger pandemic than anything else . •
I am an early morning person and usually start my day as early as 04:30 am with meditation and prayers followed by either yoga or training in the gym . By meditation , I am able to channelise my inner peace and get my brain to function at its optimum best and able to work more productively . Usually I end the day by telling bedtime stories to my six year old son – every day mummy creates and narrates a new adventure story !
