Meet our Member: Anna Al Qasimi Roberts
Hi I’m Anna! I’m a communication and performance coach based in the UAE, who helps professionals overcome fear and build confidence by empowering them with strategic communication tools.
On a personal note im a mother of twins and life long learner about to graduate from the University of Oxford. I love cooking, finding ways to be more sustainable and sewing.
Where are you from?
I’m a New Zealander by birth but I’ve lived in the UAE for over 25 years and this is home to me. I love the diversity, the proximity to Asia and Europe and the safety to live and do business.
What would you like our community to know?
You can book in for a free 15 minute discovery call and let’s talk more! I provide coaching and training through my website www.imannaroberts.com where you can find online self-directed programs, to make coaching accessible to all, and 1:1 coaching.
What topics fascinate you?
Developing self-awareness, zero waste, life long learning on all subjects, especially psychology.
Current biggest challenge?
Not trying to turn my interests into business ideas, it’s been my default for so many years and now im learning to enjoy hobbies and passions for what they give me.
Best advice you’ve ever received?
There’s more than one way to skin a cat. It’s a horrible saying but the meaning reflects when I used to think that all doors were closed to me and in fact, they weren’t.
“This too shall pass”
Favourite thing to do in the UAE?
Beach walks around the area I grew up in Umm Suqueim.
What’s one thing not many people know about you?
I had full facial reconstruction for a birth deformaty at the age of 25, quite a story!
How could our community help you?
I’d be so happy if everyone trusted their own ability to be a great communicator, and understood the power that each of you have to impact someones life with only your words.
