What’s the idea behind your company?
Concordia Consultancies was founded with the aim of providing global access to individuals and families through a second citizenship from countries in the Caribbean and Europe. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to have freedom of movement, security, favorable taxation, generational assuredness, superior healthcare access, as well as world-class education for their children, and a second citizenship provides just that. Our goal is to simplify citizenship by investment process and make it accessible to everyone who needs it.
Working from our Emaar Square office in downtown Dubai, the team is made up of professionals across different fields with a track record of excellence in the second citizenship industry. For over 8 years, we have helped over 2000 families change their lives forever.
How did you begin your career journey? Do you have some advice for beginners?
I started my career in public relations and communications, where I distinguished myself by telling brand stories across Africa and the Middle East. I worked my way up the ladder through hard work, dedication, and a hunger to learn. I have always had a natural, sales-oriented personality. Right from university, I was always selected to pitch group presentations with excellent results. Making the transition from public relations to sales was easy, and I have sold everything from fast-moving consumer goods to manpower solutions to luxury real estate. However, providing limitless opportunities through a second citizenship has to be my favorite.
My advice to beginners is to never stop learning and growing. Always seek opportunities to expand your skill set, and don’t be afraid to take risks and make mistakes. Remember that success is not always immediate, so be patient and persistent.
