AHLAN! HOT 100: KAWTHAR BIN SULAYEM
The business owner striking a balance and her making business work
- As CEO of KBS Communications, founder of Fashion Fever and co-founder of Mestaria, I was blessed over the past year in achieving several of my business objectives. Most notably would be the success of the second year of Fashion Fever, which we hosted during the F1 Grand Prix weekend in Abu Dhabi. It was a lot of work but grew substantially last year and was recognised as a big success.
Working smart, not hard, is the secret of success. I credit my dedicated and determined team with helping me to achieve my goals.
I love the international flavor of the UAE – I’ve friends and contacts from all around the world. I enjoy getting out to the desert once a month and find Qasr Al Sarab is so calming and refreshing after a couple of weeks of work. Personally, one of my biggest achievements has been getting over my fear of camping with a night out under the stars in Liwa!
I love being a business owner so my business can work for me, not the other way round. I’ve developed a healthy work/life balance and that’s incredibly important.
