UMBAR SHAKIR – PRINCIPAL
Umbar joined Gate One because she relishes a good challenge: the thrill of the journey to solve a good puzzle; the buzz you get when helping a client have a ‘light-bulb’ moment; or the excitement of turning ideas into reality. Umbar manages to combine many of her passions with her professional specialisms: digital / omni-channel strategy and implementation, business modelling and international development strategies. She has worked most extensively in the Public Sector and TMT. For its part Gate One is also proud to have its very own ‘Annie Liebowitz’ in Umbar. She is a freelance digital artist/photographer and has been published in major international fashion magazines including Elle and Asiana. She also designs ‘skins’ for 3D virtual reality gaming via Second Life…which makes her a bit of a geek, but a pretty cool one, we think.
