Now a cornerstone of the UAE, Ahmad Imam has been appointed to the prestigious position of Ambassador and Strategic Advisor to the Royal Office, UAE.
The man of many skills has come a long way over the last two decades. A prodigious journey that began from the voids of hardships to being recognised as one of the most reputable and influential personalities in the UAE.
A journey from humble beginnings fuelled by sheer dedication and determination to grow, realise his potential, and make a positive impact.
Imam’s parents made the difficult decision to leave everything behind and immigrate from Egypt to Australia when he was 4 years old.
For Imam, it meant adapting to a very different culture, unable to speak a word of English, and outcast for being different. It’s fair to say that Imam struggled to work out where he fit.
Facing many challenges throughout his adolescent years leading to low self esteem, and confidence, Imam made a deliberate decision to challenge his limiting beliefs and fears in order to grow through them.
Imam began a 20 year journey to build his confidence and courage by embracing his strengths, incrementally mastering certain skillsets, and climbing the mountain one small step at a time.
Starting from the bottom as a dishwasher, to a call-centre representative, to sales executive and manager, to TV Host and Presenter, Imam decided to take a leap of (calculated) faith, expanding his reach on social media.
Utilising his developed skillsets for public speaking, presenting, and communication, and then translating those skillsets to create compelling pieces of content that educated, empowered, and inspired; Imam was able to amass a huge following of one million plus professionals on LinkedIn within three years. Positioning Imam as a reputable global influencer with a super network of high-value relationships.
Using his platform to share positive messages about humanity, peace, love, and social impact through innovation, Imam’s trusted voice was able to reach far and wide, attracting the attention of the Royal Family Office UAE who resonated with his impactful message.
Upon meeting with the Royal Office of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Faisal Al Qassimi and finding clear synergies and alignment with their values, initiatives and vision, Imam was rewarded with the respected and eminent position of Ambassador and Strategic Advisor to the Royal Office UAE.
Ahmad Imam, notified his vast global network by sharing the news of this proud moment.
“It is with great pride that I share with you that I have officially been appointed as Ambassador and strategic advisor to the Royal Office of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Faisal Al Qassimi.”
After Being honoured with such prestige, Imam went on to express his heartfelt gratitude towards the Royal Office UAE, for their trust, faith in his abilities, as well as the opportunity to make a positive impact on a much larger scale.
It was not only the most incredible honour, but a highlight of his career to date. Now a valued member of The Private Office – Ahmad Imam is looking forward to working closely with the Royal Office on a number of innovative and values-driven initiatives.
