Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir visited the Institute of Business Management (IoBM) on Thursday, September 26, 2019. He was accompanied by Nawaz Hussain, Country Manager Pakistan, SalamAir and Shah Aun Hussain, General Manager, Business Development, Gerry’s Group. An interactive session with the management, HoDs, faculty, staff and students was held in this regard at the EMEC Conference Room. Mr. Talib Karim, President IoBM and Nabhan Karim, Lecturer and Head of Media Production, Media Studies welcomed Captain Ahmed.
During his speech, Captain Ahmed shared the business model of SalamAir and discussed how the aviation industry operates. His experience and insights were helpful for the students pursuing their business management studies. The audience was inspired by Captain Ahmed’s resilience that he displayed after his leg was amputated following a life-threatening accident. Today, he is the only pilot with disability having a commercial flying license.
Captain Ahmed shared with the audience the need to perfect the skills that we possess. This allows a person to understand his strengths and weaknesses. He talked about the need to own a business and serve the society. Captain Ahmed said that since the aviation industry in Muslim countries is as good as that of Europe there is no reason why Muslim pilots must fall behind their European counterparts. A question and answer session with students added much depth to the discussion. Mr. Talib Karim presented mementos to the guests at the end of this inspiring session.
