Adel AlFalasi, UAE Market lead, shares his story and insights about the CDP in the Nafis 'Success Stories' campaign.
As a fresh graduate, Oliver Wyman has given me the opportunity to create and see the positive impact I make not only on clients, but on society as well.
I applied to the CDP to explore multiple industries and sectors, which will help me better envision my career trajectory. Also, I wanted to work in one of the best collaborative environments in the world, and interact with creative and wonderful people at Oliver Wyman.
Oliver Wyman’s culture is unique – it feels like a family to have the opportunity to easily speak with anyone in the firm for any required support and advice; such flexibility helped me learn and grow exponentially in no time!
I was keen to return to Saudi Arabia and create impact for the Kingdom’s strategic growth under Vision 2030. The CDP has served as a key enabler towards this goal.
