What will make you shine?

What you have to do to stand out

If you can manage a diverse team of on-shore and off-shore designers and keep them motivated you’ll be called a star.

 

At the same time, if you can manage the barrage of business development opportunities that come at your door and closely work with experience architects to craft the right propositions, you will be called a hero.

 

Legendary status is achieved if you speak, read, and write fluent Arabic.

 

What will make you shine most though is your passion for the design discipline.
