    New Balance Regional Manager on building a base in UAE and growing across GCC

    Emirates Man

    by Amy Sessions
    3 hours ago

    We discuss scaling a business whilst maintaing integrity, innovation and the art of the perfect partnerships with Stuart Henwood, Regional General Manager Middle East, Africa & India at New Balance.
    What do the first 30 minutes of your day look like, your morning routine?
    In my daily routine, I prioritise waking up early and going for a bike ride. This morning exercise sets me up well for the day ahead by energising both my body and mind, allowing me to approach my tasks with a positive attitude and heightened focus. Once I arrive at work, the first part of my morning is dedicated to the Regional and Local teams. During this time, we discuss and strategize based on the key focal areas for that particular day or week.
    How did your previous roles prepare you for your current role and what enticed you to work with a brand with such a great legacy?
    Throughout my career, I have been incredibly fortunate to seize opportunities that have shaped my professional journey. Thirteen years ago, an exciting opportunity arose to work for New Balance in Hong Kong, and I am grateful for the chance to be a part of their dynamic team through my wider sports network. Before joining New Balance, I had gained valuable experience through diverse roles in FMCG and sales in various locations. These experiences were instrumental in developing my skills and understandingdifferent market dynamics. They provided me with a solid foundation and a unique perspective that I carry with me to this day.
    How does New Balance innovate?
    The brand is one of the leading sports manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers across the globe and continues to innovate whether that be in running with new technologies, sustainable material, sports science, or with retail environments. It’s on a continuous journey of innovation to meet the needs of our consumers.

    How do you approach markets differently when it comes to communication and growth strategy?
    We set up the New Balance MENA subsidiary here in Dubai in July 2019 and we have been on an exciting journey across the GCC and African geographies. What is so exciting is that each country within the region is unique and different. The key is understanding, listening to our consumers and partners in those markets, and tailoring solutions to meet their needs whilst driving consistent brand product assortments & messaging. Glocalization is a word that best sums up our approach. Having a base here in Dubai with our own retail has enabled us to use an ink spot strategy for Retail as an example of how we approach retailing across the region. We are just getting started!
    What has been the biggest challenge to date and how did you overcome it?
    The Covid pandemic in 2020 after we had just set up the subsidiary, but the team did an amazing job in not just maintaining the momentum but surpassing it.
    What has been your key learning or milestone and why was it so significant?
    Opening our Flagship store in Dubai Mall in Oct 2021 enabled us to showcase our best-in-class products whilst engaging with our consumers in an interactive way. In addition, it enabled us to showcase the best expression of the brand to our partners which has led to strong growth with our wholesale and retail franchise partners across the region. This includes UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Morocco, Bahrain, Egypt and India.
    What do you need in this current retail market to succeed?
    To remain humble with a continued Challenger brand mindset How does the New Balance customer consume data and how do you ensure you speak to them regularly to retain loyalty? We have our Brand social and digital site with which we engage with our communities as well as through sports marketing, grassroots and community initiatives. We also track and have regular consumer interaction sessions around MENA trends. It’s a continuous journey given the ever-changing habits of our consumers and in particular the young independent consumers and the way they shop.

    Do you believe in the online/offline partnership when it comes to building a brand?
    This is key and it’s about balance across multipleplatforms of engagement and purchasing. An omnichannel mindset is integral togrowth and consumer engagement.
    If you could give your younger self advice, what would it be?
    The best advice I was given was “Stay the Course”. It helped me realize that things will not always go the way you want, but if you have a vision and a passion, “stay the course” things will work out. If you are travelling – which pair of New Balance do you pack for multi-tasking? Fresh Foam More or Made in US… it’s importantto be comfortable whilst stylish and both tick these boxes.

    Founder of Impact School, Lauren Tickner on taking a risk thinking outside the box

    Millionaire by 23, Founder of Impact School, Lauren Tickner talks to Emirates Woman about thinking outside the box and scaling using a smart mindset.
    What do your first 30 mins of the day look like, your morning routine?
    This really depends where I am in the world. Because I travel a lot and my team members are primarily in the UK and USA, my mornings in the UAE look very different to my mornings in South America. When I’m in Dubai, I have 4-6 hours of uninterrupted time when no one else is online where I write, go to the gym, and do deep focused work. When I’m in US time zones, I have calls starting as early as 6am so I do 5-10 mins of stretching, then go out for a walk where I take my calls. Either way, morning meditation (I like Joe Dispenza) is a non-negotiable for me.
    How did you know it was the right time to launch your platform and what made you finally take the leap of faith?
    If I’d waited until the right time, I probably still wouldn’t have started now! Back when I got started (almost a decade ago now), my single aim was to connect with other people who were working towards the same goals. Through sharing what I was doing on social media, people began asking me for coaching. I was resistant to doing so for three years. But when I did start offering coaching (back then I was in the fitness space), it was only because there was so much demand.
    You were a millionaire by 23 years old —canyou expand on how this happened and whatsteps led you to such early success?
    No one is as surprised as me. My younger brother is disabled (epilepsy and autism) and althoughhe’s 2 years younger than me, his mental age is 2-3 years old. I saw him have his freedomstripped away from him so I believe the reasonI actually gained success in business isbecause I wanted nothing more than freedom.At the age of 18, I had a job in asset management at a FTSE 250 firm in London. All the people “ahead” of me were miserable, making a ton of money but somehow still broke, and unhealthy. I was literally looking at my future right in front of me. They didn’t have freedom and that was my pathway that lay ahead for me. People online were asking me for coaching (back then I was in the fitness space) and because the job was so drainingand, frankly, boring… I knew then that I needed to start my own business. At first, I partnered up with a friend who had already been doing online coaching successfully and I coached the girls and he coached the guys. From there, I had spent so many years offering free content that when I launched my own services, I was able to generate a huge volume of sales very quickly. It was really only myself and a video editor on the team, so my profit margins were really high.
    How did you impart knowledge to support your clients to do the same and are there any particular success stories that are special to you?
    Taking feedback from the market has been my best winning strategy. To this day, we survey every single one of our customers every quarter. Since helping people package and sell their knowledge and experience online, what we’ve always done: 1. Test strategies on one business; Get the strategy to work; Make the strategy better; And then even better again. 2. Test the strategy on multiple different businesses of ours (which are in multiple different industries); Get it working on those businesses; Make it better in those businesses; Then teach it to our customers. That way, we know it’s absolutely battletested and will win for them, too. What’s interesting, though, is that I never intended for this to be my business. After a short while of running my online fitness business, a lot of influencers and trainers were asking me how I did it. I honestly didn’t even know there was such a thing as the online consulting industry back then, so I shared what I was doing and the exact “copy and paste” posts with a few of my friends. And they each made more than $50,000 in their first month (they all had 100,000+ engaged followers online). I thought nothing of it for a while, but then one of themshared on their social media that I had helped them and I had a huge influx of people asking me if I could help, too. That’s when I put together a “sell online products” course for $2000 and used the same methods I was using for my fitness business to sell it. In my first week, I generated more than $20,000 and it was only up from there. That meant I had validated that my systems didn’t only work on my fitnessbusiness or my friends’ fitness businesses. But also to sell other types of courses, coaching or consulting online. Can you tell us more about what Impact School does? Impact School gives entretentially preneurs the systems, support and network to sell their knowledge and expertise online. We install the processes that build your audience and authority, convert your audience into sales, and that ensures your product is packaged in a way that delivers value to your customers while creating freedom for you. You can learn more at

    What is key in social media sales and client acquisition?
    Authority. Most people don’t get results because they aren’t seen as an authority figure by those who find their content. Instead of “talking at people,” you need to get them to listen to you first. Adding social proof, testimonials, and sharing your story (with evidence) is fundamental. People will stop scrolling when they see your posts once they know you’re a true authority. From there, you can make offers for them to opt-into things you’re selling or your lead magnets, and they will actually take action.
    What’s the fastest way to grow your social media following to build an engaged audience?
    No one remembered the TikTokker who blew up overnight. I’m honestly not the best person to ask about growing a social media following fast. My belief is in playing the long game:1. Share value (when building an audience, I see “value” as giving without expecting anything in return). 2. Segment your audience into three groups: a) Those who don’t know you yet; b) Those who know who you are but don’t know what you sell; c) Those who know what you sell and love you. Each week, make a minimum of three posts, and in each post, speak only to one of the three groups at a time. 3. Copy and paste the posts onto every platform. I don’t understand why people don’t do this. It takes about two minutes more and can help you reach 100,000s more people. A lot of people will take this advice and then continue to write super salesy/corporate captions and content. Organic is meant to be that: organic. People are on social media to be social and to see what their friends are up to. If you look at my socials and model what I’m doing for your brand, it will really help. Do you feel more drawn to the creative or the business side of your brand and how have you grown the team to support this? Every month, I do a two week “revenue review”. This is where I list everything I’m doing in 30 minute increments and then next to each activity, I write: 1. $ if it’s a revenue generating task; 2. + if it gives me energy; 3. – if it takes my energy Anything which takes my energy and isn’t revenue generating, I delegate immediately. This often means offloading it to someone on my team or creating a new role and hiring someone for that role. Anything which takesmy energy and is revenue generating, I create a 1-3 month plan to offload it because doingsomething just because it makes money is not healthy in the long run. Personally, my zone of genius and passion is in marketing and content creation. That’s how I started all of this without ever imagining it would become a business! Finding a “right hand” who is literally the Yin to my Yang has been so important for me. Every visionary needs someone who can provide the structure and organization to make the dreams happen!
    You have clients the globe over – what are the most common mistakes you have seen in business?
    Businesses who don’t know their numbers. It’s shocking. You may see $50k in sales but then there’s actually $40k in marketing, delivery, and operational costs. So you spend an extra $30k and now you’re actually $20k negative. As soon as businesses really know their numbers and make decisions based on cash flow versus accounts receivable, everythingchanges for them.
    What is your trailblazing approach to business and how do you support others to transform their mindsets?
    Something I learned early on is that you cannot convince the un-convincible. After getting really frustrated when people (who were clearly in need of a health upgrade) would not listen to my advice, I decided to focus only on those who are ready to hear what I have to say. That said, my belief is truly that you never lose, you learn. Every hardship in life is simply personal development packaged up in a real world example.
    What have been the biggest challenges to date and how did you overcome them?
    The more you have, the more you have to lose. There are people who were once in my life who have tried to sue and blackmail me to get money from me… People I’ve known for years. The thought still hurts but I got over it fromspeaking to a group of entrepreneurs I’m in and hearing they’ve had the same happen to them. It’s rough but I think sometimes when you know other people have been through the same thing it makes it easier to get through. What tips would you give to anyone wanting to launch their own business, is it all about scalability? In the launch phase, doing “scalable” things is where most go wrong. You don’t need to focus on “scalability,” you need to focus on getting cash in the door and making your customers happy. In the beginning, you have the ability to do the unscalable which ultimately sets you up to scale way bigger in the long run. Examples include: sending personal messages to anyone in your phone book who could poentretentially be a good customer; reaching out to all of your customers and getting on 15 minute calls with them to collect feedback; sending a message to anyone who’s commenting on your social media posts – these are the activities which allow you to know your ideal customer better than anyone else which allow you to scale in the long term. But it requires a large amount of effort so most people won’t do it. And that’s how you can win.

    How do you scale without compromising on quality?
    First, it’s all about hiring the right people. In our hiring process, we make sure every potential team member shares the company values. No matter their skill, if they don’t share our values, it will not work out. What we look for is that our team members would make the decision I’d make when I’m not in the room. Second, we survey all of our clients every quarter to find out what they want that we’re not delivering on. That way, we can be proactive and ensure we’re delivering the best experience possible. Third, systems. We have systems set up for anything and everything. That way, the system makes the decision rather than a person needing to make the decision.
    What advice would you give to your younger self starting out?
    Advice I would give to my younger self starting out: 1. Relax more, it won’t hold you back; 2. Be very careful with trusting people: you never know their ulterior motives; 3. Always be testing: trying new things in business allows you to innovate and come up with more efficient ways to do things; 4. If there’s someone who’s done it, you can too. Don’t let your imposter syndrome hold you back; 5. Confidence comes with success: get some wins under your belt early on and it’ll set you up for your future success; 6. Hire the most experienced lawyer who understands your industry.
    This is The Trailblazers Issue— what does it mean to you to be a trailblazer?
    Being a Trailblazer is about showing what’s possible for other people. It’s about taking your failures and extracting the lessons, and empowering others to follow the path you’ve laid out for them. To be a trailblazer requires a level of leadership most are afraid to take on. But when you do, believe me, there’s a new level of fulfillment and happiness that will unlock for you. Get out there and show the world what’s possible.

    The Tasteful: 3 tastemakers on their most-loved spots in Saudi Arabia

    From world-renowned restaurants and favourite local haunts in Riyadh to lesser-known hidden gems in Jeddah, three tastemakers share their most-loved spots in Saudi Arabia.

    Arwa Al BanawiFounder & Creative Director of Arwa Al Banawi
    The ultimate place to be during weekends:
    The beach!
    Your favourite lunch/dinner place plus, dishes you would recommend trying:
    Kuuru is my favourite place in Jeddah, it’s a blend of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine. The nigiris and ceviche are my favourite thing on the menu, and the sliders too!
    If vegan, favourite vegan eatery in Saudi:
    Moon Shell is a lovely place to go for a coffee and enjoy one of their vegan bowls, my favourite is the açaí.
    Favourite place for coffee/tea/matcha:
    I love tea, and in Jeddah tea is done right. For me it’s my grandma Salma’s place – she makes the best tea. It’s prepared with lemon leaves that she grows in her garden or when it’s rose season in Taif which is about two hours away from Jeddah, you can add that with mint tea.
    Saudi Arabia’s best-kept secret:
    That would be Jeddah’s old town, Al Balad. Just walk around and visit the local cafeterias, the old town of Jeddah has so much heritage and stories, for example, my great-grandfather’s house is over 100 years old now. Thankfully the new vision of Saudi is to restore all the buildings in the old town and give it a contemporary take while keeping all of its old homes. It’s magical and you feel it the second you arrive, you can buy local produce, local perfumes, and some traditional kaftans, also the “mistaka bukhour” is found there, we burn it with charcoal, it is believed in our culture to purify the space from bad energy and you can buy it in the old town souk. It has a beautiful scent. A treasured hidden gem that only locals know and love: The beach islands, there are many and you go about 20 minutes by boat from the marina.
    A go-to wellness spot:
    I usually get my spa treatment at home; the best is Polish Salon.
    A once-in-a-lifetime experience to try:
    Our traditional way of cooking is usually fried local fish with rice made with special spices and herbs and a fresh salad with tomatoes and cucumbers. On other occasions, a special coffee we call “qahwat loz” is traditionally made at the beginning of the Islamic New Year, and it’s made with almonds, milk, and cardamom. It’s a tradition we have at my grandma Salma’s house.
    Other spots you’ll recommend to friends when visiting Saudi:
    Shangri-La Hotel is a beautiful place overlooking the sea, I recommend their tea time, snorkelling and diving in Jeddah is a must for those who love to do that.

    Hala AbdallahJewellery Designer & Founder of Ofa
    The ultimate place to be during weekends:
    There are a lot of amazing things to do in Boulevard Riyadh City and Bujairi Terrace.
    Your favourite lunch/dinner place plus, dishes you would recommend trying:
    For the best food I’d say LPM for fine dining, and Amigos for the best casual Mexican restaurant.
    Favourite place for coffee/tea/matcha:
    There are so many places, but I think Starbucks always wins!
    Saudi Arabia’s best-kept secret:
    I highly recommend Flour & Firewood for a breakfast or brunch experience in Riyadh.
    A treasured hidden gem that only locals know – and love:
    Waking up early in the morning to go to Wadi Hanifah is so worth it!
    A go-to wellness spot:
    I will recommend Al Faisaliah Spa by ESPA.
    A once-in-a-lifetime experience to try:
    A once-in-a-lifetime experience is to hike the edge of the world during winter in Riyadh and visit AlUla on New Year’s Eve.
    Other spots you’ll recommend to friends when visiting Saudi:
    I can recommend people to visit a Saudi home and eat with them or learn how to make a local dish with them, you can do that through platform. That is an experience like no other.

    Lina MalaikaFilm Maker & Cultural Consultant
    The ultimate place to be during weekends:
    I’m fortunate enough to live in Jeddah which is located on the coastline of the marvelous Red Sea. As an avid sea lover, I make it a point to spend every weekend at the beach, it’s my nature sanctuary. The sun, sea, salt, and sand, help me unwind and fuel for the rest of the week.
    Your favourite lunch/dinner place plus, dishes you would recommend to try:
    My favourite lunch spot in Jeddah is definitely Acqua E Sale, a new authentic Italian spot located in Al Rawdah. I love their vegetarian pesto lasagna and lobster Caesar salad. My favourite dinner spot has to be Kuuru, a local Japanese- Peruvian fusion concept. It’s my go-to whenever I have any guests visiting my city and it never disappoints! I highly recommend their lemon truffle salmon nigiri and Najel ceviche.
    If vegan, favourite vegan eatery in Saudi:
    My go-to is Moon Shell with an all-day breakfast menu. I love their “Sunrays” açai bowl, but I also add their homemade peanut butter. For the savoury option, I highly suggest their vegetable rice rolls. The Nabati vegan ice cream is guiltfree, delicious and definitely worth trying!
    A treasured hidden gem that only locals know — and love:
    Homegrown Market in Jeddah. It’s a meticulously curated concept store that offers local fashion brands, jewellery, artisans, books, collectibles, and gifts. You can never leave empty-handed!
    A go-to wellness spot:
    As for anything wellness related, I always opt for home services. For hair blowouts and nail treatments, I use The Spa KSA. For facials, the best in Jeddah is located at Spa Lounge and for massages, Spa Day – my favourite masseuse is Apple.
    A once-in-a-lifetime experience to try:
    A once-in-a-lifetime experience would definitely be midnight stargazing and the sunrise hot air balloon experience in AlUla during the winter. I highly recommend a weekend getaway to AlUla.
    Other spots you’ll recommend to friends when visiting Saudi:
    One of the most underrated spots in Saudi is the south region, Asir. The highest peak is located there, Al Soudah, as well as Rijal Almaa, an ancient village located in a valley and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Also, visiting the art museums dedicated to the Asiri art is an experience not to be missed. The artisans and craftsmanship are very inspiring. The entire region is rich with culture and heritage on many layers. Another recommendation would be to visit the Taif region during the springtime and flower festival season.

    Saudi Vision 2030: National Day and the Kingdom’s Modernization


    by Ruman Baig
    7 hours ago

    Saudi Arabia, a nation deeply rooted in tradition and history, is undergoing a monumental transformation with its ambitious Vision 2030 initiative.
    This vision, spearheaded by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, aims to modernize and diversify the Saudi economy while preserving the country’s rich cultural heritage.
    As Saudi Arabia celebrates its National Day, it is an opportune moment to reflect on the progress made and the path forward in this journey towards a more prosperous and modern Kingdom.
    Vision 2030: A Bold Blueprint for Change:
    Vision 2030, unveiled in April 2016, outlines a comprehensive roadmap to transform Saudi Arabia into a global investment powerhouse and a hub for tourism and entertainment. At its core, the vision seeks to reduce Saudi Arabia’s dependence on oil revenues by diversifying the economy into various sectors, such as tourism, entertainment, technology, and renewable energy. The goals set forth in Vision 2030 are ambitious and far-reaching, but they represent a clear commitment to change and modernization.
    Economic Diversification:

    A pivotal aspect of Vision 2030 is economic diversification. The plan aims to enhance non-oil revenue sources, including tourism and entertainment, mining, and technology. Initiatives like NEOM, a futuristic city, and the Red Sea Project, a luxury tourism destination, are prime examples of the Kingdom’s efforts to attract foreign investments and tourists. These projects promise to not only boost the economy but also create job opportunities for Saudi nationals.
    Empowering Women:

    Another significant aspect of Vision 2030 is the empowerment of women. The plan recognizes the untapped potential of Saudi women and aims to increase their participation in the workforce. Over the years, Saudi Arabia has witnessed numerous reforms, such as granting women the right to drive and the opening of more career opportunities for them. These changes are instrumental in achieving gender equality and fostering a more inclusive society.
    Cultural Preservation:

    While striving for modernization, Saudi Arabia is equally committed to preserving its cultural heritage. Initiatives like AlUla and Diriyah Gate aim to showcase the Kingdom’s rich history and cultural significance. The careful balance between tradition and modernity is crucial in maintaining the Kingdom’s unique identity.
    National Day Celebrations:
    The Saudi National Day, celebrated on September 23rd, is a significant occasion to reflect on the progress made under Vision 2030. It is a day of national pride, marked by festivities and events across the country. The celebrations highlight the Kingdom’s unity, cultural heritage, and its determination to forge ahead into a prosperous and modern future.
    Saudi Vision 2030 is not merely an economic plan; it is a transformative vision that seeks to redefine the Kingdom’s role in the global arena. As Saudi Arabia commemorates its National Day, it is a testament to the country’s commitment to modernization while cherishing its roots. The journey towards Vision 2030 is challenging, but it is a journey towards a brighter, more diversified, and inclusive future for Saudi Arabia and its people.
