Coaching Football team in middle of Baluchistan

 

Hi! I am Ammar Haider and I get to talk about myself, How cool is that!

Born in Karachi, schooled in Hyderabad, graduated in Malaysia from a UK university and worked in UAE for a French company to look after brand in African market. Now that’s true globalization and the reason why I am turning into Digital Nomad.

Completed my studies in Computer science but realized I can’t sit whole day on one chair and just write codes (No offense programmers, massive respect for you guys), so I ended up exploring career opportunities in sales, marketing, event management, and PR.  Started blogging as a hobby but later on moved into social media marketing after developing an interest & passion.

Another passion I developed during my self-exploration, is Business of Sports and Football Coaching. The overall idea of sports marketing, fan engagement, and management of sports properties fascinated me.

I now have 7+ years of working experience in Digital Marketing, Strategy, Media Planning, and Advertising in Pakistan, Middle East, and Africa.
