PresentMe

Founder & CEO

"Marrying Technology with liberal arts" is what we do at PresentMe - a small business where we help shape ideas into presentations designed to shift audience beliefs and behaviours in their organisations, communities, and world. The presentations go beyond words and pictures, they become transformative experiences. We worked for many clients since 2012 including Intel, LSS, Etaam, Aramco GreenCity and more.

While many people think that design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa, But to us, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. We think of design –– Just like what Steven Paul Jobs described it –– as the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layer.

Ignite Dhahran

Ignite is a global event, organized by igniters from all over the world, where participants are given five minutes to speak about their ideas and personal or professional passions, accompanied by 20 slides. Each slide is displayed for 15 seconds, and slides are automatically advanced. The Ignite format is similar to Pecha Kucha, which features 20 slides displayed for 20 seconds each. The presentations are meant to "ignite" the audience on a subject, i.e. to generate awareness and to stimulate thought and action on the subjects presented.
