I am a part of the prominent KIAMS diaspora in the Middle East. A pass-out of the 2007 batch of KIAMS, I started my career with Al-Futtaim Willis as an Insurance Consultant in Dubai, catering to the insurance requirements of government companies and large multinational companies. I then got promoted as the Network Country Manager for UAE and Qatar, and in 2015 I took up the position of Deputy Head of the Corporate Department. During my tenure with Willis, I was awarded the Willis Medallion for being innovative and developing the client database portal that assisted the company in cross-sell initiatives.
I was recently provided with the Willis Tower Watson Long Service award for the continuous service of 10 years.
Now I have bagged the opportunity of moving to the client side and joining the insurance department of a major corporate Group, Meraas Holding LLC. It is a Dubai based holding Company, which operates through its subsidiaries in real estate, hospitality, leisure and entertainment, tourism, technology, retail, food and beverage etc.
I attribute my success to the training and development provided by KIAMS. More than an educational institution KIAMS acts as a platform to develop and nurture your skill set to perform better in your career.
The Capstone Projects, Operacy, Pragati each one is designed to enhance your interpersonal skills and innovative thinking.
KIAMS is a beautiful memory – the friendly but professional faculty, the marketing classes, the winning moments at Operacy, management of Pragati (the one of its kind rural marketing fest at KIAMS), group discussions, and capstone project. Everything at KIAMS was so full of life.
I was also able to bring life to the staff parties at Willis by introducing fun activities and singing and I was part of the organising committee and organised the staff party for about five years.
I would like to thank KIAMS for nurturing my leadership and interpersonal skills that helped me grow steadily and successfully in my career.
