Ritu Prakash Bhatia
United Arab Emirates
started my banking career in 2001. Mumbai being the finance hub of India, I spent 7 years working in 3 private banks there until I decided to move to Dubai in 2008 to take my career further. The merger of Emirates NBD had just taken place so I knew there would be a lot of challenges and opportunities within the bank. Based on my past experience in Operations, I was rightly placed in Group Operations at Emirates NBD. I think this was the best thing that could have happened to me. I work with a smart and highly competent group of people. I am now a Project Manager in the division and work together with seven other Project Managers. We learn a lot from each other and it's fascinating how all of our different backgrounds come together to create a great productive synergy. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I see myself as the only woman in a packed meeting room working shoulder-to-shoulder with qualified and successful men and Emirates NBD has definitely aided in that journey. I wish to gain higher understanding and wisdom of life and invest more and more in people which will ultimately keep me and others happy.
