His vision was simple: to inspire young people with leadership values and encourage them to uphold them in their daily life. Dr. Thabet Al-Nabulsi founded Challenger Team in 1995, driven by his belief that true leadership is lifting one’s vision to higher standards. His mission focused on investing in individual personalities and capacities to support them to access and ignite their highest potential. His extensive experience in dealing with human resources of different levels and ages empowered his role in building his own employees’ capacities, thereby inspiring corporates and individuals to develop their roles in their communities as active, responsible leaders. Dr. Al Nabulsi believes in the power of teamwork “to make the dream work”. He holds a PhD in Behavioural Modification and MA degree in Creativity and Talent Development.
