Businesses normally face challenges, which are not an issue for Hussain al Nowais, the managing director and chairman of the famous Emirates Holdings, known for making dying companies live again and even succeed. It will be such an honor to know the success story behind this amazing UAE Businessman.
The experiences of Hussain al Nowais in his younger days have inspired him to succeed in order reach his dreams.
When Hussain al Nowais was still young, he and his siblings saw the struggles of their parents. And now that their lives have already improved, it is evident how much they earned through their sacrifices.
It is quite unthinkable to have air conditioner before or even drink purified water in the 1950s, according to him. Abu Dhabi, as Hussain al Nowais described, can be compared to a village with no people. Years ago, their family stayed in an area of Corniche, and the town’s centre was Al Husn.
The insufficiency of school’s in Abu Dhabi was the reason why Al Nowais went to Qatar to study.This did not only happen to him but to many people before, considering as a norm.
Many families, which included the family of Al Nowais, decided to come back to Abu Dhabi when Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became the president. The grandfather of Al Nowais, who was once a pearl merchant, worked his way and became a building material and foodstuff trader. The business was good, making their family have a trade organisation.
Al Nowais went to the U.S. to study after he got his high school diploma from a school in Abu Dhabi.
After finishing a business administration course in the U.S., he was totally filled with wisdom and might, which gave him the courage to go back home in order to practice what he has learned. It is so impressive who Al Nowais has lifted his credibility so high, making him succeed even in his early 20’s, wherein he was able to deal with big names in the business world.
Along with his dedication, intelligence, luck, and commitment, he was able to evolve their family business into a well-known contracting, trading, distributing, and manufacturing company, which is not limited in UAE. He even recalled how we build everything almost from nothing.
When his career was still on the state of growing, he was given a chance to supply equipment for electrical use for a department in the government.
By improving his acquired skills and knowledge, he became successful in his chosen career.
Even the beginning of Gulf War was seen by Al Nowais as a chance to begin a food business, because of its necessity. By acquiring businesses that are already failing, he found ways to restructure and make them rise 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.
