Dr. Hassan Dawood

Head of Dubai office, Alsayegh Media

A doctor by training and an entrepreneur by passion, Dr Hassan Dawood started his first company in the technology sector while still a medical student in the United Kingdom. Upon returning to his native UAE, he was instrumental in co-establishing a revolutionary New Media agency. Within the space of two short years, he helped to transform the company from a “new player” to a “game changer”.

Today he inspires a multi-skilled staff of Emirati and international talents, and has spearheaded some of the region’s most highly-praised communication strategies for clients such as Dubai Economic Department, Abu Dhabi Police, Dubai International Peace Convention, and many other successes.
Dr Hassan regularly invests his time as a Motivational Speaker and Special Judge at entrepreneurship events. He is devoted to helping young Emirati entrepreneurs become a dominant force on the world stage. His philosophy is that the only real limit for an entrepreneur should be their imagination.
