Travelling is a wonderful activity that always broadens your horizons and exposes you to the endless possibilities that this life can offer. On this episode of the Forcepreneur podcast, we make a special visit to Dubai and get a glimpse into the flourishing Salesforce ecosystem in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) Region.

Our guest on this episode is Mr.Ghassan Chkaiban - Founder and Managing Director of Changi Consulting. Founded in 2010, Changi Consulting is the biggest Salesforce gold partner in the GCC region. Changi builds and delivers Salesforce solutions focused on helping businesses accelerate, automate, and optimize their operations.

If you’ve only thought of Dubai as tall buildings, exquisite chandeliers, fast cars and sand dunes then prepare to be surprised. Yes! All of this does exist; But there are also hard working people who have regular 9 to 5 jobs.

In this episode, Ghassan talks to us about the GCC Salesforce market, the local community, the kinds of customers he has, Salesforce’s growing presence in the region and life in Dubai in general.

One key takeaway from this episode: 'Don’t give up; It's all about persistence.'

Have fun!
