/PRNewswire/ --
Manar Al Hamadi is now the first ever blind female UAE national to receive an
internationally recognised certificate from the UK-based Institute of Leadership
and Management in the Arab World. This feat adds to her extensive list of
achievements, which includes several awards, and certification in English, Brail,
Speed reading and retention, Home Economics, NLP, VIGNE 2, How to be
Successful in Business, Modern Strategies in HRM, Total Customer Service,
Distinguished Trainer Award, Emotional Intelligence, as well as many other
government-run training programmes related to her full-time position as public
servant.
She can also claim the honour of being the first blind woman to graduate from
the University of
Sharjah
. Manar has been honoured for her contributions to the
improvement of living environments for the blind, through her work with Al
Thiqa Club for the blind, the University of
Dubai
, Dubai Immigration
Department, and UAE University .
Manar was handed her certificate by the Director General of ILM and City &
Guilds when he visited the UAE this week. "I am incredibly impressed with what
Manar has been able to achieve and this is a great testament and example of
how disabilities should not prevent people from achieving their learning," said
Chris Jones, Director General of ILM and City & Guilds. "I would strongly
encourage anyone in a position of leadership or management to consider
taking an ILM qualification. By investing in management development,
organisations can ensure that their leaders are confident in their abilities and
able to lead through the challenging times ahead. Nurturing effective leaders
through management development is a cost-effective investment for any
organisation."
Manar was thrilled with her achievement, and said that she "gained a lot of
skills and knowledge about how to become an effective trainer, a skill I am
planning to use in training fellow visually impaired people in conducting their
affairs in a world equipped for sighted people.
"Initially, I faced some challenges, particularly when the instruction for the
'Train the Trainer' programme was conducted using 'Power Point'.
However the instructor from Manarat Training Centre, an ILM- recognised
provider, Mr. Hussain Al Najjar, made the extra effort of explaining the content
of the slides and went out of his way to simplify it so that I could benefit as
much as my sighted colleagues did. I have also to give credit to my colleagues
in the same training cohort who gave me lots of support considering that I have
not met them before and for that I thank them," said Manar.
Manar is always already preparing for her next challenge. She presented a
working paper in Al Manal Conference, which was held in
Sharjah
between 21-
23 May and dealt mainly with the handicapped and social media. She is
delivering a paper entitled 'Social Media for the blind: between reality and
ambition'.
