Start-up Business of the Year Application
Gulf Capital SME Awards – MEED
We are honoured to make this submission for Start-up Business of the Year. This page is an overview of who we are and what we do, but more importantly what we care about and how we have gone about creating a sustainable business model for growth. We believe winning this award will enable us to reach even more influential leaders of the future who will change corporate life for ever.
We have a common belief that, in our own way, sharing what we have learnt about people-led leadership will change lives and businesses. And that’s what we’re doing…
Who We Are
We are a Dubai-based boutique, consulting firm providing advisory services to corporate executive teams. We focus on unlocking lost productivity in your organisation through strategic vision, unique perspective, authentic leadership, and positive culture and mindset, creating sustained business value. We help leaders to transform businesses from the inside out and lead through change.
We differentiate ourselves from our competitors because the tried and tested changeosity philosophy is to be curious, collaborative, courageous, and caring. This creates abundant growth and prosperity for your people and your organisation.
We’ve worked hard to combine large company capabilities and governance, with small company adaptability and approachability…
Our Growth Model
We are proud of how quickly we have established a comprehensive business model from branding to marketing, and sales to customer nurturing.
We have adopted automation through the careful selection of integrated technology. We believe it is helping us to project a strong brand on a tight budget.
Our Start-up Timeline
In just six months we have leveraged our existing skills and worked to establish a comprehensive governance platform, with a clear strategic plan, solid legal framework, strong financial management and control, operational excellence and outstanding people and culture practices. We have challenged ourselves to learn new skills in content driven marketing, sales funnel expertise and IT prowess. Our commitment to leveraging automation and technology is enabling us to achieve high levels of productivity with high scaleability.

Manal Al Soori
Head of HR Transformation, Emirates Group
Build Your Leadership Brand is a totally brilliant course. It has changed both my work and personal life in such a positive way already. I have been able to employ the skills and tips I learnt, with great results almost immediately. This course was very insightful and the group attending were of very strong leadership backgrounds and the discussions were very healthy and gave a depth of knowledge and experience. The experience with changeosity from start to finish was faultless. changeosity is transforming leaders and re-energising them to go back to their workplace bold & strong. I have recommended the course to my colleagues and my executive leadership.
We’ve pivoted rapidly during lock down using the time to learn, develop solutions, and digitise. We’re proud that the business continues to grow…
Thank you for your consideration
