"As compliance professionals, our aim is to educate people on compliance to maintain an ethical business environment. So learning is the key to achieving this goal. Further, I believe my background in regional healthcare will support me a lot for this purpose as well as my legal background due that this role is a legal and compliance combined role in the complicated MEA region."
