The path from mechanical engineer to kitesurfing instructor is not a particularly well-trodden one. But in 2014, Amer El Dandachli set off down that road and it ended, as most do, at the ocean. Lebanese-born El Dandachli quit his 9-5 life and eventually set up Kite N Surf Dubai in 2016.

Glastonbury Festival, 2011. It is 4am and in a muddy tent the dancefloor is heaving as revellers in Wellington boots slide around to an eclectic mix of power ballads and dance music. Everyone is smiling, but no-one is making a sound.

As palliative care is only available in a few hospitals, there is also a shortage of options for advanced pain management, despite an Emirates-wide push to advance healthcare options.  This leaves many end-of-life patients suffering, with pain being one of the most...
