This week on the Faces of Duuzra, we’d like to introduce to you our IT Support Technician, Ahmed Dweidar, who joins us from our New Jersey office!
What is your favorite things about events?
I have been with Duuzra for slightly more than a year now.
What is your favorite things about your job?
My favorite thing about my job is how we all work as a team together to make events happen. Whether it’s the PM dealing with the client, graphic designer designing the app, tech to support the event, or logistics that handles equipment shipping, we are all important pieces in making an event successful and the client happy.
My biggest frustration is probably delayed/missed flights. Sometimes work requires travel, which is already hard enough but it becomes much harder when plans change and you run behind schedule because of transportation issues. I also have a long commute to work and always get frustrated when I get stuck in traffic during the rush hour.
Best Piece of Advice?
I found it very useful to create a checklist every Monday morning for my goals/tasks for that week. This kept me very organized and helped me avoid missing important tasks, especially when it gets busy.
What’s on your desk?
I have my laptop, a second monitor, coffee, cell phone, and any equipment that I’m checking.
Most used app on your phone?
For personal use, probably either Instagram or Facebook. For work, I definitely use Slack & Mail a lot. Although I use Whatsapp a lot as well, I definitely use the other apps much more.
Favorite city in the world?
This is a tough one! Cairo is probably on the top of my list. I have lots of memories there and I love the culture and vibe that it gives out. Besides that, I really enjoyed Istanbul & Dubai when I visited as well.
On the weekends, you can find me:
On the weekends, you can find me in the gym, playing basketball, hanging out with my twin nephews, or just relaxing & getting rested up for the upcoming week.
Thank you Ahmed~ Really glad to have you in the team!
See you next time on the blog!
