Tell us about Green Light International as an organization and how does it differentiate itself from the competition?
Green Light International plays an important role in shaping the differentiation of offerings. We focus on gaining a deep understan
ding of our customer’s problems and requirements, reviewing their full product offering and understanding the total value delivered, defining their price within the total value they deliver and the buyer’s next best alternative. The process indicates how we differentiate our product & service from that of our competitors. Our marketing positioning strategy is affected by plenty of variables related to customers’ requirements and motivations, as well as by its competitors’ actions.

The ability to matter to a great number of people is one of the most rewarding experiences of being an entrepreneur

As the Managing Director, how are you developing strategies to preserve this legacy of being Oman's leading Fire Protection System Integrator and Equipment Supplier?
GLI believes in ESOP(Employee Stock Ownership Plan). My team members know my vision, mission, and quirks. They’ve spent years working shoulder to shoulder with me and understand exactly how finicky the business can be. Most importantly, they understand how important the business is to the community and take pride in its operations. ESOPs require a solid team and good buy in from the staff who are going to take over shares in the company. With the right people in the right places training the right way, one can have the recipe for a very successful ESOP.

How would you describe your role in tackling the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic?
COVID-19 has caused the most serious health crisis in a century and the most serious economic crisis since the Second World War. This has meant that shifting to a more comprehensive work from home program during this pandemic was a natural course of action. We already had the technology and systems in place to enable remote work, and if anything, the pandemic has been a chance to strengthen
and enhance these processes and tools, and to work even better than before. We guided team members on how to work remotely, and leaders on how to manage, motivate and engage their isolated teams. I sent out regular communications to ensure everyone was aware and engaged, and regularly review our response to the situation.

As a leader, what is your anticipation of the changing market behavior and what are the opportunities do you foresee?Also, what is your advice for the upcoming entrepreneurs?
The future of marketing in 2022 is flush with new consumers’ desires, personas, and marketing methods. In 2022, expect to see many brands continuing their transfor mation into more nimble and agile organizations. Some of the opportunities will be in the development of on demand services, but some will require different types of solutions to evolve areas of infrastructure like local government, law enforcement, energy consumption and creation, broadband access, and healthcare. I would urge the upcoming entrepreneurs to embrace the opportunities. The ability to matter to a great number of people is one of the most rewarding experiences of being an entrepreneur. The intrinsic happiness that results from helping the community and the team as a business entity is pretty profound. If they haven’t already started giving back in some capacity, they really should. The positive impact one business can have is quite large.
