Challenges in business are no match to the capabilities of Hussain al Nowais, who is the managing director and chairman of the Emirates Holdings, making low companies boom in no time. There might be a lot of questions in your mind regarding the ways on how this UAE Businessman bloomed in this kind of business.
The experiences of Hussain al Nowais in his younger days have inspired him to succeed in order reach his dreams.
In an interview, Hussain al Nowais shared that he has experienced the hardships of their parents back then. And now, they are already enjoying the good things that they have earned.
He shared that back in the 1950s, drinking purified drinking water is already a kind of luxury while having an air conditioner for a room is just unthinkable. Abu Dhabi looked like a village with no citizens, as Hussain al Nowais described it before. He also mentioned that his family once lives in the area of Corniche, wherein Al Husn was the town’s centre.
Hussain al Nowais was sent to Qatar to study since Abu Dhabi’s schooling was insufficient.There was a norm before that people leave Abu Dhabi and go to Saudi Arabia or Qatar to get out from a difficult kind of life.
Al Nowais’ family only returned to Abu Dhabi, along with other families, when Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became the president of UAE. When they came back, their family was blessed after Al Nowai’s grandfather became a foodstuff and material trader instead of remaining from his past job as a pearl merchant. Their family managed to become a trade organisation after that.
Al Nowais went to the U.S. to study after he got his high school diploma from a school in Abu Dhabi.
He finished a business administration degree in the United States of America and then practices it right away in the UAE, wherein his heart and soul were filled with optimism and bright ideas. It was no surprise that when Al Nowais was 22 years old, he was already one famous and successful person who can communicate well to foreign businessmen all over the world.
He was indeed very passionate about what he is doing in his life, which is why there is no doubt why he uplifted their family business into a trusted contracting, distributing, trading, and manufacturing company. According to him, he almost started from nothing in order to build what he has now.
One of the biggest events in his career that made their business grew more and more was when he was able to have a contract for a certain government department in supplying electrical equipment.
By improving his acquired skills and knowledge, he became successful in his chosen career.
During the Gulf War, Al Nowais saw their food business as something that would succeed because it is needed. His brilliance even made him acquire some businesses that are dying, wherein he restructured them and made them earn a lot once again.
Even up to this very day, he is still showing everyone in the whole wide world how possible it is to succeed for such a long time.
