Sarah Al Bakeri, an Emirati mother of three, has always been fascinated by culture, both her own and that of others. While her professional career began in information technology, she has since moved on to public administration. But as Sarah has herself realized, in order to live a truly authentic life, following your passions is key.
In search of her true calling, Sarah began to explore literary texts concerning the art of cross-cultural communication and psychology. Today, she is an active public speaker on Emirati culture and provides commentary on UAE culture and society to various media outlets, as well as serving as a volunteer motivator, influencer and speaker for a variety of firms. Last but not least, Sarah has an ever-growing passion for self-development and awareness and wants to share her passion with others. That is why she trained to become a co-active coach through the The Coaches Training Institute. She is now pursuing qualification as an associate certified life coach.
Over the years, in her mission to help bridge societal gaps, Sarah has also held cultural awareness sessions at her children’s school and has introduced awareness initiatives into her work leading a team of HR professionals, as part of a new employee on-boarding program.
