Meet Wafa Alobaidat, founder and CEO of Obai & Hill, a massively successful, award-winning PR and Design agency in Bahrain as well as the Women’s Power Summit, the region’s biggest female empowerment event.
Wafa is leading more and more women in the region to work on their passions and build successful careers either through her own team at Obai & Hill or through connecting with the community.
And while Bahrain is known for its fast-growing economy and for being a prime fintech hub, creating opportunities for many on the island, however, it’s just in the past decade the Kingdom has seen more and more women taking on leading roles, which Wafa is trying to encourage in the region.
On this week’s episode, we sit down with Wafa Al Obaidat, a Bahraini entrepreneur to discuss her journey of owning brands, bridging the gap in the community, and connecting like-minded people to each other
