With a career in media that began as a 16-year-old, and living in Kuwait since 2003, Tamara’s is a face and a voice that will be known to many of you. Well-connected within Kuwait throughout both the local and international communities, she is a passionate advocate for women’s empowerment and a tireless supporter of good causes. Today, she uses her radio show to lend support to community events and worthy initiatives. And now, you’ll be able to follow Tamara through Passions Arabia’s social media feeds, online, as well as in-print monthly in Men’s Passion magazine.

In what was a quiet month, ideal for reflection and for catching my breath, I attended the Australian School of Kuwait’s School of Business “Fill The Gap” and was on the judging panel to select three winners. First-semester marketing students were challenged by senior instructor Brian Thompson to come up with new, innovative and creative products that would just be the next brilliant idea to start a business with, and to sell in the market.

Many non-food product ideas were presented by semester one diploma students, but only 13 groups were chosen to compete for the grand prize. The students were required to showcase their products and to attempt to sell to us exactly as if we were their customers the marketplace – and for one week they were even marketing their product and selling it on-campus. It was a great experience for me to be part of this as I had the opportunity to see and test new ideas that will be money-makers in the future!
