Xpat Community Ezine / Thursday 10 March 2016
Dear Member, first up this week is a great new Xpat Interview:

Mohamed ElSayad, Marketing Director, Telekom Hungary. Previously Mo was the General Manager of MSN Arabia, Maghreb & Pakistan. He is passionate about start-ups, technology, sports and storytelling. Example Q&A’s: Have you ever been an expatriate elsewhere? “I was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt. I've lived in Dubai working for another Telekom operator...”. Your favourite Hungarian word? “I have so many… one of them being köszi – because it means something so different in Arabic...” Your personal motto? "This above all: to thine own self be true…” Click here to read his full interview.

Now here's hoping you like what's included for you below.
Yours with kind regards, Stephen@XpatLoop.com
