A smart, results-oriented and industrious worker recently finished my MBA course (September 2015) with experience across the private and public sectors as well as with the United Nations (UN). I have over one year experience of managing projects for a shipping company. I also possess considerable experience relating to social and local development at the UN including providing humanitarian and rescue assistance as well as heavy involvement in relief aid. I have proven ability of work under pressure and I have a strong tendency of calmly achieving notable results. I am a big team worker and I was a member of the team responsible for the planning and organizing of high-priority level meetings for the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC); I grew expertise in negotiations and I built experience of work with the Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I take pride in my ability to explain complex terms and instructions to my colleagues and to my peers with a consummate ease. At the UN I have had dealings with Ambassadors and Diplomats from across the world. At the UN Development Program (UNDP), I worked on two main projects: Live Lebanon project and Art Gold. These focus on five essential domains: Women Empowerment; Economic Prosperity; Education; Social Development; Enhancing Youth. Following completion of my MBA in September 2015, I aim to become an integral part of many teams which habitually attain results harmoniously just as in the private shipping sector or with the UN. I chose to read an MBA to gain a firm and meticulous understanding of several aspects of complex companies (Please view all courses studied in the MBA under „Education‟ below). I am now hoping to add value to any team that I join and I realise that my career begins now.
Worked on several high priority level projects for the UNDP and UNIC relating to social and local developments as well as projects related to enhancing youth and education. Used problem solving skills to deal with obstacles that inevitably arose during project management.
Through the MBA program, gained a thorough knowledge of marketing and related theories including SWOT analysis that helps determine the strengths and weakness of a company or service and transform threats into opportunities. Applied several marketing theories into a practical assessment which aimed to create a marketing strategy for a company in the sector.
Led a team of ten employees at Gharib shipping agency with responsibility for ensuring the company‟s strategy and work processes operated effectively.

At the United Nations Information Centre, part of a team responsible for organizing a significant number of International events and conferences focusing on different topics including Economic, Social, Political, Women Empowerment, Agricultural, and Industrial.
