Creative Director Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Creative Director?

Creative Director in Dubai:
"Pro and Cons."
Pros: Hospitality Industry is very new to me, however, education is not, as my family are well surrounded with people from the education sector. Understanding the values behind the work ethics in the industry is not that much different from where I came from. Learning is a great factor that I decided to continuously stay in this job, able to learn new things everyday and interaction with various nationality / race and culture excites my creative thinking.
Cons: However great the company is, coming from a multinational corporation and going to a family owned business is a big transition for me. Work culture needs a big change and having to implement it to people who has been quite used to be in their comfort zone is a major wrecking ball to anyone with a different output and outlook on the matter. When the world is moving, one must always try to evaluate themselves and keep up with the ever changing time.
