Nada walks with her clients hand in hand in creating a difference in bottom lines and addresses real pains. She has lead PMOs, managed high-profile programs and projects in private and public sectors, consulted for Fortune 500 companies, started 6 companies, & still refuses to call herself an entrepreneur.

Nada just finished being an advisor to the DG of Dubai Health Authority where she lead the COVID-19 PMO, and moves to lead an Agile PMO in Abu Dhabi Maritime in mid-November.
If she's not in the office trying to come up with groundbreaking ideas to turn around the business, you can probably find her climbing a mountain or hiking somewhere, or at DSRPTD 2021 delivering an engaging Masterclass on Hybrid Project Management, Business Analysis and Scheduling to the DSRPTD 2021 audience.
Thanks Nada for being with us. You rock :D
