Managing Director - KD Group / Founder – Techne Summit / Founding Curator – Global Shapers Alexandria
I am a British-Egyptian, with 20 years of diversified experience in the key strategic fields of the full business suite of media and marketing communications, business development, project management, coaching, mentoring and psycho-therapy.
Following my passion around the world for achievement and learning, I have developed an internationally diversified portfolio, thus, studying and working in Cairo, Dubai, New York and London.
Driven by the belief that specialisations require comprehensive knowledge, I am now a certified marketer from Salford University, Manchester; a certified filmmaker from New York Filmmaking Academy, London. Since 2005, I pursued my passion with degrees in coaching, mentoring and psychotherapy and became qualified and accredited from coaching and mentoring International, the Royal Coaching Academy and the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy in England. In 2006, I founded my own practice in coaching and mentoring, which I was running beside my job, and still am, where I have taken the practice offerings to new dimensions reflecting my own personal growth as a psychotherapist and programme curator and provider in Egypt.
Throughout my career succession, I have played varied roles, from programmes director to events producer to handling the full portofolio of learning and development, corporate and marketing communications. Thorughout it all, I have developed a conpetenly diversified portfolio with comptent skills to drive projects, programmes and initiatives. My fulfilment is made through achievement and I remain a very open individual to learning while producing meaningly constructive and sustainably competent results that empowers individual, communicties and works for the greater foog of society reform.
In addition, having had an international career, I have capitalised on my skills, network and sustained a high intercultural competence in relationships with people from all walks of life, this included working directly with senior government officials, MPs, CEO’s, stake holders on varied projects’ relevance, donors, partners, board members, educators, entrepreneurs, senior officials, civil servants, sponsors, youth, advertisers, marginalised communities, media figures and press networks.
My passion runs through my commitment to creative writing, a long followed path of accreditation and best practice since 2005, working as an accredited and certified life skills, creative performance and inner leadership coach, and as psychotherapist, where I have founded and ran my practice in London and continued to follow through with cultural adapationations as soon as back to Cairo. Over the year, I have delivered many coaching and healing retreats and workshop with the purpose of empowering humanity to have fulfilled individual and consequently collective journeys.
In addition, I am a fully certified filmmaker with a passion for documentaries depicting human nature and unlocking social conditioning in the human race; I enjoy photography, travel, badminton as my favourite sport. I am a drummer, and plays the piano.
My belief is that work must be a visible portrayal of our passions, if we are ever going to create something in the world and for that, I follow a humanistic approach to all my pursuits and endeavours in this life.
