Nashwa Al Ruwaini, speaks on the panel aptly titled ‘The diary of an impromptu leader’ at the Women in Industry Forum

“Don’t take no for an answer”

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates - Sunday, May 29th 2016 [ME NewsWire]

Pyramedia CEO and esteemed media personality Nashwa Al Ruwaini shared her life and business experience at the Women in Industry Forum held at the St. Regis Corniche, Abu Dhabi on May 23rd 2016. Discussions at the Forum focused on ways to achieve better gender parity in the GCC’s workforce as well as highlighting success stories of the women on stage. The Forum was attended by the likes of H.E. Fatima Al Jaber, Board Member of the Al Jaber Group; Lorraine Martin, Deputy EVP of Lockheed Martin’s Mission System and Training; Souad Al Hosani, President, Nexus Business Services; Reem Al Anbari, CFO, Borouge; and Nivine Abouel Soud, CEO Unichem.

Talking about her success as a media pioneer, Al Ruwaini acknowledged that although challenging, balancing work and career is not impossible. “One of the secrets is Passion. When I started out, I was young but I had a passion for media and was determined to succeed.”

Throughout her career, Nashwa has effectively channeled her passion to build successful business models that no other Arab woman has done before - From her early days as a 15 year old teenager on radio; to the youngest female TV presenter in the region; to then founding the creative department for MBC and heading its business in North Africa; to launching her own media production and consultancy firm, Pyramedia.

Admired for her ability to balance her professional duties and her personal life as effectively as she does, Nashwa has become a role model for many women. A regular name on lists such as the ‘Most powerful business women in the Middle-East’ by Forbes, CEO and Arabian Business among many others, Nashwa showed her appreciation for all the strides the UAE has made as a nation to achieve gender parity at the work place and urged the audience to pursue their dreams with tenacity “I don’t take no for an answer. If you encounter an obstacle, change your approach and find another way to accomplish your goals. What differentiates successful people from the rest, is their attitude to make things happen and never take no for an answer” she said as she concluded her talk with this empowering parting thought.
