An experienced Director/Manager in Higher Education in the UK for almost 25 years. Started managerial job as Head of the Postgraduate Department at the Kuwait Cultural Office in London in 2001, and latest was Director of Academic Affairs & External Relations at the same office, until June 2019. During this time, I have become a vastly skilled Higher Education Consultant, who has developed a wide range of capabilities and a unique set of core competencies in planning, communicating, negotiating, and organising opportunities as well as utilising diplomatic interpersonal skills. Aided by strong leadership capacities, sensitive cultural awareness, and interpersonal skills, I can form and cultivate relationships that forge creative opportunities.
I have a reasonable knowledge of the US university education system, when I was given an assignment in 2013 to prepare a comparative study on the UK vs the US degree grading and/or classifications “my report has been published on the internet until recently removed upon my request due to copy right privileges”.
From 2019, I became Interim Consultant in higher education for Smart Education, Logistics & Training Service (SELTS). Additional expertise such as key negotiation, assessment, and consultancy skills for all aspects of academic administration, has been further broadened in this role. I have planned and delivered extracurricular events targeted towards the needs of students studying abroad in all roles over a long period.
