Helen Al Uzaizi
Social Entrepreneur, Speaker, Triathlete
and Social Entrepreneurship Advocate
I've spent the last 20 years working in marketing, non-profit management, and entrepreneurship and have worked with some of the coolest brands I know!
About 10 years ago, I realized I wanted to be involved in non-profit organizations. Since then, I have served as a Board Member, Brand Ambassador, Advisor, Fundraiser and Mentor to various NGO's in the region.
Recently, with my passion for entrepreneurship, education and children, I founded Future Entrepreneurs, a platform to empower youth entrepreneurs in the MENA. I also took on the role of CEO for BizWorld UAE, Jordan and Egypt, a social enterprise teaching children entrepreneurship skills.
I'm a Certified Marketing Executive (CME) and studied Law & Politics at the University of Manchester. I later completed my Executive Education at Columbia University. I was also recently honored by being selected as one of the UAE's Smartest 100 People by Arabian Business and one of the 50 Most Influential Women in the Arab World.
On a more personal level, I am a mother of two incredible girls, a triathlete and an adventurer who believes in making dreams come to life and that anything is possible.
My most important role, being a mother.
I'm on a mission!
I believe we can change the world and make it a better place. One person at a time, one step at a time.
Even as a single individual, if we share our story and share our mission we can start creating a movement.
My mission is two-fold:
One, I believe that entrepreneurship education will give our children better hope for the future.
Two, I believe that more women need to speak out and share how amazing they are and everything they accomplish.
There is no shortage of statistics that will validate both of these statements, and I am not here to share statistics. I am here to share my passion and love for children and my ultimate faith and belief in the power of women.
I've been honored to have been invited to speak at numerous events over the years on both of these subjects and always looking to spread the word even more.
I'd love to share my journey with you and your teams. Get in touch!
