About Me

  

I am a talk-show host, motivational speaker and advocate of promoting Arab achievement and social causes. For more than twenty five years, I have worked with the movers and shakers of the world, inspiring Arabs to break new ground one conversation at a time.


Creating new concepts in a pre-satellite era, I have formed a conduit between the special insight I was collecting from my interviewees and a growing Arab TV audience.


I have always encouraged my guests to open up and reveal their innermost thoughts. A long line of international and Arab figures broke the silence; stepped center stage and bared their souls under the glare of my studio lights. I went on to interview people with great influence such as the Dalai Lama, Farah Diba Pahlavi, Noor Al Hussein, Bill Gates, Luciano Pavarotti, Valentino, Ivo Pitanguy and Zaha Hadid, to name few.


In 2010, I decided to take storytelling to the next level and use it as a means of creating impact. I brought together those I have worked with over the years and created TAKREEM Foundation which stems from my faith in a thriving Arab world and my strong belief in the importance of giving back to one’s community by empowering its beacons and honoring its traditions.


In 2018, TAKminds came as a natural next step in the Foundation’s strive to bring about change. By building on its singular momentum and the untapped potential of possible synergies, this initiative aims to unite the TAKREEM community through thought and action-triggering events, talks, and activities. It pushes people to make the most out of each encounter.


In addition to the above, I dedicate most of my time embracing and promoting initiatives and causes, primarily those that are youth and health related and boost cultural and educational progress. I believe that culture can succeed where politics fails. It combines hearts and fights fundamentalism and dictatorship with peaceful weapons.
