As a lot of folk wisdom suggests, resilience during adversity and a willingness to change and adapt are key components in the success of any individual or organization. At the start of the pandemic and during its progression, we have not been entirely short of challenges. Not to say, the setup of our Dubai office in 2020 also involved a lot of learning on our part. We have had to maximize our efforts in putting our people first; their safety and engagement and offering the best support to enable our entire team to continue thriving amidst the uncertainty.
