Fluent in three languages (Arabic, French, and English) and with three degrees—including a doctorate in Business Administration—serial entrepreneur and seasoned project, product, and program management consultant Ahmed Zouhair knows the value of hard work. He also understands what it takes to build an empire from scratch. While today his international roster of clients includes companies and individuals from the education, IT, telecommunications, digital security, oil and gas, finance and banking, and non-profit sectors, Ahmed’s career didn’t start out that way. His first job after college involved collecting mud samples during 12-hour shifts on an oil and gas rig. Such tedious work in a harsh environment taught him patience and how to think on his feet when things go wrong. He likewise learned to interact with many different types of people, skills he would later refine as a volunteer business coach and workshop presenter for SCORE/Newchip.
