Associate Partner, International Project Marketing, Dubai
I’ve visited more than ten Middle Eastern countries and am learning Arabic.
While on Knight Frank’s graduate scheme in London, I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity of undertaking a secondment in the new Dubai office. My time there sparked a real interest in the Middle East; I wanted to learn more about its culture, people and real estate. I went on to relocate there on a longer-term basis.
The first six months were challenging at times, but Dubai’s welcoming community made it much easier to settle and I soon developed a keen appreciation of the broad spread of cultures and business environments there.
I have now travelled to more than ten countries in the Middle East and have a much better understanding of its markets as a result. I’ve even started studying Arabic! I can’t recommend moving abroad enough; the amount you’ll learn about yourself and your surroundings is limitless.
