Founder & CEO
Dr. Saadi Adra embodies a passion for capacity building with purpose. He's passionate, committed, knowledgeable, and driven. An early member of the elite club of professionals with the highest number of PMI® certifications, he pursued and completed a PhD In Program and Project Management with SKEMA Business School to investigate silos and how to break them in a very rigorous way. The outcome of his research caught the well-deserved attention of a PMI® international committee, who made him the PMI® Snyder award recipient of 2016.
Saadi has also co-founded and led the curriculum design of several programs, including the post-graduate project management diploma at the American University of Beirut and the PMD 2.0 with SKEMA Business School. In addition, he led the team which set up one of the most critical PMOs in the region. His long experience with projects and programs has made him, according to some very seasoned professionals, an international thought-leader.
