TEA WITH THE CHAIRMAN: The Kanoo Group facilitates interactive discussion between staff, Chairman Mishal Kanoo


In line with its commitment to engage with and motivate its employees further in the new year ahead, The Kanoo Group—one of the largest family-owned business conglomerates in the region—on January 16 has organized an interactive discussion between Chairman Mishal Kanoo and the sales employees from all of its divisions.

“We have a lot of deer, some are small, others are medium-sized, some of them are huge ones. If you want them, go get them. Go become the cheetah, the lion, or the panther. Or, you might become a vulture—eating whatever’s left,” he said.


The chairman added that people does not have to do things that are of grand scale, they just have to do something that they think is important and will leave a mark, long after they’re gone.


“Choose what you want to be, how you want to be remembered, or how you want to remember yourself. Because at the end of the day, it has nothing to do with what the company does, it has everything to do with you. If you want something, go get it,” he added.


The Kanoo Group’s Country Manager Hesham Nass, noted how all the members of the Group must be keen to add further value to the business through partnerships and joint ventures.

Collaborating between teams and collaborating across other brands of your industry,” he said.
