An email from FleishmanHillard / Mona Sadek landed in my inbox one day. It was an invitation to attend an event by Samsung to announce their new S6 phone. I didn’t know how they found me or come to know about Wajeez, but I said why not.

There, the mystery was solved when I met Mona Sadek, a senior PR executive active on the social media front in the UAE. I was in her list of influencers (yayyy). The rest is history, as they say. Today I’m privileged to interview Mona Sadek.

Interview: Tarek ElMoukachar, Dubai PR Expert

Less than ten years ago, while I was working for a tech publication, I received an email from a new PR expert who was at that time representing Microsoft Xbox. To my astonishment, and as I discovered later on after meeting him face to face and running through thorough interrogations by yours truly, he knew a lot about videogames. He was a hardcore gamer not a fake one. When I asked him about anything, he would get to the bottom of it or simply say I don’t know.

TEKSTartist Interview: Jason Markow of FiveSpotDerby.com

,

Today, my online guest is Jason Markow (a.k.a. TEKSTartist) from FiveSpotDerby.com who will take us through how he left his daily job to become an entrepreneurial artist! In his own words, he “artistically twists, warps, and distorts letters & words into the very thing they describe.”
