CEO Monthly Issue 3 2020 cover

Issue 3 2020

Welcome to the March issue of CEO Monthly. As always, every month we endeavour to provide our readers with the latest news and updates from all corners of the business world. In the new year’s issue I wrote about change – specifically, about how change was necessary for growth. For advancement and development.

The last couple of weeks have been…unusual, to put it lightly. Change has been the one familiar constant as the business world looks towards stabilisation and a return to normalcy, or as close to it as possible. Whilst weathered business leaders are used to adapting to volatility, the coming weeks are sure to pose a challenge for a whole host of companies. Still, as they say, challenge brings about new opportunities. It drives innovation and supercharges creativity.

Innovation and creativity are crucial to the success of the businesses we’ve featured in this issue (how is that for a segue?) From world-class real estate investment consultancies to best in class testing firms, we’ve gathered together industry leaders and drivers of change and asked them – how have you thrived despite challenge? How have you secured your success?

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this month’s instalment. Do get in touch if you have any thoughts, opinions, comments etc.

CEO Monthly Issue 2 2020 cover

Issue 2 2020

Welcome to the second issue of CEO Monthly for 2020. As always, every month we endeavour to provide our readers with the latest news and updates from all corners of the business world. This month’s theme is the idea of “Challenge”, and all that word means in the corporate world. Sometimes, it means challenging old ideas, and paving the way for a paradigm shift that revolutionises best practice in a sector or industry.

Naturally, the very idea of growing a business involves all sorts of challenges. Challenges of every variety. After all, building a successful business is never easy (far from it) and requires an unflinching drive partnered with creativity and forethought. These are qualities that can be used to describe our cover inclusion for this issue – Gulf Central Bank and its CEO, Hakim Azaiez.

As a UK-registered independent financial services firm, Gulf Central Bank has thrived through its expertise and diversity of thought. We profile the firm and Hakim’s achievements to find out more about how they have expanded over the last nine years.

CEO Monthly also sat down with CEO Andre Daoud to discuss his extraordinary approach to driving innovation in the healthcare industry through his company, Medcare Hospitals and Medical Centres. Andre has built an impressive career through challenging what it means to provide excellence, and that method has helped create a peerless reputation for Medcare Hospitals in the UAE.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this month’s instalment. Do get in touch if you have any thoughts, opinions etc.
