His Excellency Marwan Al Sarkal - Executive Chairman Of Sharjah Investment Development Authority
If the Sharjah Investment Development Authority is, and it is, the driving force that is transforming Sharjah as a key investment, tourism, cultural and business destination. Then my guest is the driving force, behind the driving force. My guest is one of the key leaders in contributing to Sharjah’s economic development growth. From 2009-2018, as the CEO, he led the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq). An entity created to invest in infrastructure projects, to modernize and develop existing ones, creating magnificent projects and exciting events throughout Sharjah. As their CEO, my guest oversaw many significant projects such as the Al Majaz waterfront, Al Noor Ssland, The Heart of Sharjah, Kalba Eco-tourism and joint ventures with Eagle Hills and Sustainable city. Today, he is the Executive Chairman of the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq). My guest leads a team of over 400 people. Working on projects totaling over 8 Billion Dirhams across a range of sectors that include, health care, tourism, mobility, logistics and many more. My guest is highly regarded and well known, locally, regionally and globally. He has received numerous awards, like the Middle East CEO of the Year. But, he is not the kind of man who is driven by recognition. From what I know and what we have all seen of him. My guest is driven by his purpose and love for the Emirate of Sharjah, and also the United Arab Emirates. We are at his office, in Sharjah, at the Beautiful Al Qasba. This is, How Do They Do It?

Olympian & Professional Athlete Sarra Lajnef
My next guest is brains, beauty and a beast wrapped into one. She should have you reframing your mindset in the sense of what you can actually achieve, if you set your mind to it. My guest leaves her home at the tender age of 15. She studies in France for her baccalaureate, graduates with honors, and is then then recruited by the University of Florida and swims for Florida for four years. She graduates with a degree in political sciences and an under grad certificate in international relations - with the highest distinction- Summa Cum Lade. She then graduates with a master of business from the University of Wollongong in Dubai. Brains aside, she’s also a beast. She’s an Olympic swimmer, the first Tunisian female swimmer to qualify for the Olympics. She’s a 2015 and 2019 Master Swimming World Champion. 1 Gold / 3 silver & 4 Golds / 1 Bronze respectively. She then picks up rowing, and within two years becomes the national champ in both Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates. And now, it’s the triathlon. Are you kidding me? My guest is the kind of person who chooses to continuously and consciously redefine herself. This young lady is absolutely inspiring. This is How Do They Do It? I’m Kevin Abdulrahman. My guest today is Sarra Lajnef. #SarraLajnef #ChampionMindset #WinnerMentality ▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂ 🙌 Big shout out and thanks to our host venue partners Rove Hotels: ▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂ 🎧 LEARN MORE ABOUT SARRA LAJNEF: ▸ Insta: @SarraLajnefOfficial ▸ LinkedIn: ▸ Facebook: @SarraLajnefOfficial ▸ Website:
