About Me

about-abeerkhalid

Everyone starts somewhere – you just have to set your sights on a destination and make sure you reach it.

Challenges and problems are what make life worth living, something in which I truly believe and this I have been doing so creatively, professionally and personally. I was born to in Zarqa also known as the ‘blue city’ of Jordan to a Jordanian father and Pakistani mother, 20 years later I find myself in the ‘city of gold’ Dubai!

Professionally I am a marketing specialist with almost a decade of experience in event management, branding, and communications. My audience has been a mix of b2b exhibitions, startups, and technology professionals. My fluency in Arabic, English and Urdu and thorough knowledge of managing marketing and branding initiatives with my limited budget and ability to get things done have been key to my success. Currently, I manage the brand positioning and marketing of Dubai Internet City and Dubai Outsource City – business parks located in Dubai.

Personally, I am a paddler, runner, and traveler. I take every opportunity I get to explore a new city or country with my best travel buddy – my husband.

If I have 10 seconds to tell my professional story:  “Officially, my job is brand positioning, strategic marketing, and partner relationship management but every day I contribute to the ambition of the UAE – becoming the smartest cities in the world.”
