Message From Chapter President, Laila Faridoon

Laila      Look forward to the bright side

We grow up in this life and live according to the rules of others around us. Most of us leave it to those others to determine how we live, while a lucky few recognize the need for the inner self to be in control, rather than the outside world. We have seen and heard about many legends who went against the norm to prove themselves in this way. Fortunately, this is a path that we can all take to create the life we want. PMI and the PMI UAE Chapter can provide the support you need to chart out this path.

As we are witnessing major transformation around the world in many fields, including project management, we ensured to keep all our members posted with all changes in the field, for that we had two great speakers at the Abu Dhabi event which was held at the National Archives on Saturday, April 21. Mr. Oliver Flous, VP of Digital Transformation & Digital Factory, Thales Group, France and Rebecca Samuel, Consulting Manager, GE Healthcare partners, the two speakers addressed an audience of more than 200 PMI members about the role of project management in handling digital and social transformations.

I would like personally to welcome all our new members and congratulate all new credential holders, it’s a great pleasure to see you progressing with us, and as we value such, we keep holding our dedicated events to welcome new members, thank you to all new members who attended and our speaker and member Zubair J Awan, who gave his speech to the new members event we had prior to the main event in AD.

Once again, I would like to thank all our volunteers for their dedication and hard work to make these events a success. This is the way to celebrate the Year of Zayed by spreading the founding father's legacy by giving back to the community of project managers and contributing to the human development of the UAE.

I would like to thank all the members who attended our last event in AD and I always welcome your feedback to make these events better. If you have any comments, ideas, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to communicate with us on:

With all my best wishes for a blessed Ramadan and enjoy your holidays for those with plans to take time off from work.
