Professional Background
I am a CSR and Sustainability Consultant based in Saudi Arabia. I am the Founder of Good Business Sense (GBS), a CSR and Sustainability Knowledge Advisory (http://www.gbsense.com). A former corporate VP and academic, I have 14 years of experience under my belt with almost 5 years in CSR related areas. Before starting GBS, I was the head of Sustainability operations at a consulting business based in Jeddah where I worked with some of the top Saudi companies in helping them determine their CSR direction, designing bespoke CSR training programs and developing Sustainability reports in line with GRI. I am the author of a research study examining growth of CSR in Saudi Arabia and am also responsible for developing 3 out of a total of 6 CSR reports released in the Kingdom.

I am still trying to figure out what’s worse; the confusion with “Customer Service Representative” or that barely concealed eye-roll. Despite the eye-rolls and the perplexed stares, I…
