Khalid Al Ameri is an Emirati columnist, motivational speaker and a youth coach. In his column in The National he writes on regional issues such as education, entrepreneurship, and employment.
He recently earned an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He formerly sailed on ships to Japan, worked in asset management and investments at an Abu Dhabi-based sovereign wealth fund, and was co-founder of food and beverage company Slices.
Al Ameri’s website – http://khalidalameri.com/ – includes articles based around lessons he has learned on living life better, managing relationships, and getting the best out of one’s career. “The lessons usually come from mistakes and improvements I’ve made throughout my life, it’s been a fun ride.”
Al Ameri is passionate about youth development and doing what he can to bring passion and purpose to the lives of others. He enjoys helping people follow their dreams, better their lives, and shape their careers, not because he knows better than them, but because he is on that journey too.
He regularly speaks at schools and professional establishments, hosts workshops across the UAE on career development and life planning and provides one on one support to individuals.
