Going with [unclear] came from University is a great transition because I find that those problem-solving skills apply right here in this department, but I also find that being on site in a place where I can see the plans and the visual is right there is a lot more helpful than just seeing things in textbooks.

[Translation of Arabic] The main reason I joined Qatar Shell is because of its unique reputation that it has in terms of development and being one of the elite companies in the field of Oil and Gas. Being here in Pearl GTL has given me the opportunity to work with highly experienced engineers who have worked on various projects across the world. Having such qualified engineers helped us at Shell Qatar to build a professional experience and competency that cannot be taught in any classrooms or universities.

One of the distinct opportunities working in Qatar Shell is being able to work in international assignment. Specifically, what I learnt from my international assignment in The Netherlands was that you get to interact with subject matter experts from all over the globe. You got from New Zealand, you got from Australia, you got from Amsterdam, as well as people from Houston. And that level of network is absolutely valuable.

For me quality quality Qatarization is a commitment. It should come first from the employee which is the most important, second from the line manager. Also, the commitment is very important to recognize the output [?] and to provide the right coach and development.
