A major motivator for Mansour is seeing the impact DEVA’s work has on the economies and the industry competitiveness. “I strive towards finding the balance between economic and social prosperity,” he says, noting that addressing future challenges - like gender equality, workplace diversity and inclusion, climate change and shifting socio-economic equations - will involve rethinking the traditional business practices in most organizations.
"As we head into a capricious new era of tumult and upheaval of global, economic, and social order – old rules won’t hold. Innovative top-down and ground-up thinking to develop highly specific remedies for economies and societies will be required."
