What I bring to the table

Walid brings to the table a variety of skills:
 
1. Critical thinking, coupled with a highly ethical code of conduct;
 
2. Entrepreneurship insights: Set-up and managed, for over 20 years, a virtual multi family
office, with access to families in business having over 250 billion dollars worth of assets
under management;
 
3. Legal strategy and risk management: Brings corporate/commercial expertise working at
1st-tier US and Canadian law firms, a European global multi-national corporation, and
Middle Eastern privately-held family business;
 
4. International exposure, communication, and negotiation: Experience building and
managing stakeholder relationships. Negotiated cross-cultural and multi-jurisdictional
transactions, including M&A, joint ventures, and multi-billion-dollar project financing
transactions across the five continents;
 
5. Governance: Built and managed the legal affairs of single-family offices and contributed
to the institutionalization of over 130 family-controlled businesses, separating emotions from
reason, and ownership from management;
 
6. Inter-generational conflict management: Reconciled feuding families, and paved the way
for NextGen family entrepreneurs to take over the mantle in an orderly fashion; and
 
7. Coaching and Mentoring: Coached a number of patriarchs to ‘let go’, and senior
executives who join family businesses. Also, mentored a number of young professionals
and NextGen family entrepreneurs to forge their own ambitions and follow their heart.
