“Mohammed's book, The Productive Muslim has reached me since 2019, but I just got the chance to join his training, together with ALAMI team in 2021. The session was very intriguing, as it enticed us to think beyond textbooks and existing use cases, touching our spiritual and emotional angles as we shape business strategy. We had a lot of takeaways from the session, which some of them materialized into our policies that enforce our culture.”
