Omar Sukhon

It is very challenging to write about my own strengths and weaknesses, because sometimes there is a huge gap between what I think I am and what I really am! To get an objective description I tried to ask my friends and colleagues who know me very well that what they think about me.

I think one of my distinguishing strength is the diversity of experiences I possess. I have studied Industrial Engineering specializing in Gold manufacturing industry and I have wide experience in IT and Telecom for more than 23 years of full time and part time work experience at different industries. All these elements have given me a very broad point of view.

I took my second degree in Marketing in year 2000 as i was planning to change career from an industrialist to project planning and market research, due to my experience as an entrepreneur in the IT sector, I had to work hard on my IT skills to understand the industry in many different aspects to survive in very challenging market, I self taught my self all i needed to start generating business but back in 1995 there was the revolution of Internet in Jordan so i needed to understand this industry to enable me compete in this fast moving industry, so I worked with two telecom companies and learned a whole lot from whom we consider today the masters of telecom in Jordan

I always try to care about those around me regardless of their wealth or social class. I make an effort to show respect and treat all people with dignity without distinction whatsoever of race, gender, religion, national or any other distinguishing feature.

I am patient but to a limit, as i like to give people around me a chance to learn, but i loose my patience if they keep doing the same mistake over and over, may at the first glance it seems a strength but not about me.

Finally I know to have a successful life both in personal and career, I need to know myself. And I am working not only to strengthen my strength but also improve my weaknesses.

Now I am into consulting and training as well, plus building startups in the digital and communications fields.
