Omantel and Altaaat, have joined hands for the grand launching of the book ‘Leadership Excellence’ as a part of paying tribute to 12 years of exemplary leadership of Dr. Amer Awadh Al Rawas, former CEO of Omantel.
Hosted in AlMouj Golf club, Muscat, brought together the management team at Omantel and all the individuals who contributed to the book by providing their remarkable and touching stories and memories experienced under the admirable leadership of Dr. Amer Awadh Al Rawas.
Recognizing, the tremendous need to spread these incredible and profound leadership lessons to serve its mission of developing leaders, Altaaat, sponsored and supported by Omantel, has published the book capturing stories and memories of more than thirty people who worked closely with Dr. Amer. Starting from his driver, office assistant and all the way to his executive management team and the board, have shared their personal encounters.
The people interviewed, were able to recollect the memories in surprisingly incredible detail, keeping in view the fact that the majority of the events shared had taken place many years back. The reflective impact these instances and situations had on them and their careers, made these moments unforgettable for them - moments they would always recall, cherish and proudly pass on to others. Titled by the name ‘Leadership Excellence’, the book has been published in both Arabic and English languages to be of inspiration to people worldwide.
Dr. Amer Al Rawas, a PhD in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from the University of Sussex joined Omantel, a government run agency, as its executive vice president back in 2004. Few years later, on instructions from the government as part of the liberalization and privatization drive the mobile arm of the mother company was split off into a stand-alone company to be headed by Dr. Amer as managing director of what became Oman Mobile. However, again in 2008 another mandate was passed to merge the two companies back together again as Omantel. Based on Dr. Amer’s remarkable performance within that short timespan at Oman Mobile, led to his appointment as CEO of Omantel.
