Tell us about what you do at Gameplan?
As a trainer specialized in Finance, it is my job to business partner with Gameplan’s clients and their teams to understand their learning needs and deliver custom-made training to improve their level of understanding in a chosen area. I am supported by a great team who share my passion and commitment to being the best we can for our clients.
If there is one thing you’ve learned over the years, what would that be?

We will be always there forour clients through thick and thin. Our clients know that they can always depend on us to deliver on our promise. I believe this single-minded resolve is what matters, at the end of the day.When you are not training, what would you bedoing?You can always find me on my mid-life crisis super bike flying round Dubai somewhere, or watching myteam lose at Football or Cricket!
