As one of the richest people in Saudi Arabia and the DAMAC owner, Hussain Sajwani is no stranger to the business world but just how does he manage to maintain his composure amid all the stress related to running your own business? He recently sat down with Arabian Business to discusses where he plans to go with the company and how he manages to stay on top of all the things he has to do. As a child, he first recognized his knack for being an entrepreneur and pursued that passion. By the beginning of the 21st century, Hussain Sajwani had worked his way up the corporate ladder and become the DAMAC owner you see today. When discussing social media, he mentioned that he believes it to be one of the most powerful and effective tools of the modern day and age.
In fact, his company actually uses social media to help promote their products. One of the things that Hussain Sajwani enjoys the most as the DAMAC owner is when he is able to enjoy the finished product of one of the skyscrapers or homes that the company has built. He is very adamant about being able to enjoy his own handiwork. When discussing the secret to the success of the company, he said that there is no one person who keeps the company running smoothly. Rather, every single employee helps to ensure that the company remains successful. When asked whether he values education or experience more, he mentioned that you can’t have one of those without the other.
As such, he believes the two concepts to be equal. One of the biggest decisions he had to make for the company is when they decided to have DAMAC go public because that required them to make a lot of different changes within the company. Finally, he was asked where he sees the company in five years and he responded that he would like to expand into other parts of the world because they’ve already built over 20,000 residences throughout the middle east. We wish him the best of luck.

The entrepreneurs entering the business world are hoping to have the next big idea that revolutionizes everything. Unfortunately, no matter how much hope some of the young entrepreneurs have, many still end up failing due to a complete lack of experience and knowledge. In these cases, they could learn a lot from looking at entrepreneurs like Sheldon Lavin and his decades-long career at OSI Group.
Sheldon Lavin has a lot of knowledge in business, but in particular, he is great at large-scale food supply chain operations. He knows that there are a lot of factors that must be considered in order to make these operations a success. Sheldon Lavin knows that it is impossible for him to be able to make every minute decision on his own, which is why he implements a strong, trusted team to help him with the details.
One of the types of incidents that Lavin relies on his team for is keeping him informed about any possible shortages of necessary ingredients. If the research of his team predicts that there will be a shortage for a particular reason in the near future, he knows to go ahead and order a large quantity of the product before the shortage happens and the price increases. This process has helped Sheldon Lavin in career for the last 50 years.
The OSI Group has had a century of success in the food industry. It is sometimes difficult to imagine the multinational corporation as the small butcher shop that it began as. The butcher shop that started OSI Group was founded by an immigrant from Germany in a suburb of Chicago. Later, the business was taken over by the immigrant’s sons who helped the company grow by making several important business decisions.
One of the main factors of growth for the company that is now led by chief executive officer Sheldon Lavin is their involvement with McDonald’s. When the sons of the company’s founder first made the handshake deal with the owner of the chain that at the time only consisted of a few franchises, they never expected it to grow in the way that it did. As the chain expanded across the country, the company that would become OSI Group quickly figured out ways to expand their production while maintaining a fresh product that could be shipped for long distances. Innovation made this possible and has become part of the core values of OSI.

After being the victim of violence due to homophobia, Gareth Henry left Jamaica to seek asylum in Canada. The badminton player and activist for HIV/AIDS, social justice, and LGBTQ rights was born to a teenage mother with a father who was completely absent from his life. He realized he was gay during his teen years after starting high school at only 10 years old.
When he was 15, Gareth Henry left his home so he could finally feel free to come out as who he is. After graduating, Gareth Henry moved to Kingston and earned a bachelors degree in social work as well as a masters in communications. He began volunteering for an AIDS support program in order to help his community. He continues advocacy for community in his new country of Canada.
Not only was he able to help others through his work, Gareth Henry was able to associate with other gay men in the area. In 2004, he became the leader of J-FLAG, an organization in Jamaica that is fighting for the rights of the LGBTQ community. This organization was the first of its kind. This position was given to him after the murder of its co-founder, Brian Williamson.
It took a great deal of bravery to take this position as it made him a target for violence. Gareth Henry was one of the very few people that had any interest in taking up the important position out of fear of violence or death. During his time as the leader of J-FLAG, 13 of his friends were murdered due to their sexual orientation. He himself was the victim of homophobic violence 3 times by police.
One of these attacks occurred at a pharmacy in Kingston where he was beaten with guns by police officers in front of an angry mob consisting of hundreds of people. After issuing complaints about the treatment of the LGBTQ community, he realized that his concerns were largely ignored. This attack made international headlines and Gareth Henry knew that he had no other choice but to leave Jamaica, an opportunity that many in his community do not have.
