Business Planning Manager YES 2 DIGITAL FZ

I enjoy working on cutting edge technology; Always looking for taking an active role to contribute to the growth of digital businesses, source new opportunities through creating products and services that make people lives easier.

I have been always drawn to technology, and I have over 14 years of experience in international organizations, and a solid technical and academic background. Through my extensive work over a variety of projects - As we have moved into the digital era - I realize that organizations have to function in a space of vivid intellect and nimble communication. An environment as such is an ideal place where ideas can pour into one great pool.

I have been involved in many vocational disciplines, most of which have contributed to the domain I'm involved in at present.

YAAB (Yet Another Awesome Business) is what media has come to be in its most dynamic and developed form. At YABB, I'm a business developer who is based in Dubai, where YAAB's HQ takes its place in Dubai Media City. I also liaise with our staff in YAAB's offices in other Arab countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan, and meet our clients in these countries.

As a Business Development Manager, I focus mainly on developing new business opportunities. This includes: managing, supporting and supervising the acquisition process of new strategic business units. I also identify strategic growth opportunities, provide direction and insight on key trends in the new media sector; also develop strong relationships internally and externally; and work closely with the stakeholders to create and maintain the demand for YAAB platforms.
