I am professional and highly motivated former, BBC world service and current APTN, Broadcasting Journalist, researcher, Translator / Interpreter with an extensive experience in the news media business and team management. I am able to motivate and lead members of an organization to be productive and innovative. I pride myself on my intuitive and dedicated approach to working with people in order to deliver excellent results.
• Excellent communication skills and fully fluent in English, French, 22 Arabic dialects plus the Classical Arabic and Thamazighth languages.
• Good organizational skills and proven ability to work under demanding situations to meet tight deadlines
• Multi-tasking within a busy pressurized environment
• Demonstrated planning and deadline adherence skills
In addition to my duties as a Programs Manager, I was responsible for teaching junior journalists media related communication including broadcasting, TV and radio. This included writing and reading scripts in Classical Arabic and other Arabic dialects as well as the correct rules on speaking to a TV camera and through the auto cue screen. I insisted them communicating in clear concise language. This was done for individuals and groups
I am pragmatic and believe in simple, systematic solutions. I firmly believe that the true art of teaching is to tailor make lessons to the individual student’s needs rather than a predetermined template. A favourite method to help my students to grow intellectually and understand any topic in question is to balance the support I can provide with the challenges they face.
I try to earn my students trust and their confidence by showing them respect in the form of meaningful, challenging, and rewarding learning activities that are worthy of their time and best efforts.
