Louai Al Roumani
Agent: Ben Clark
Louai led the strategic planning of a leading bank in one of the most hostile business scenarios imaginable; in Syria during its civil war. Despite the gruelling circumstances, the bank was able to safeguard the savings of Syrians from all over the country.
Louai has lived in six different countries across the Middle East, USA and is currently based in London with his wife. His passion for food and history drove him to create a new dining experience called the ‘Civilisations Supperclub’ hosted at London’s prestigious museums, which was chosen lately as one of Lonely Planet’s top 10 food experiences in the world.
His debut book Crisis (Penguin Business, 2020), is a part-memoir and part-business story that highlights the leadership lessons learned from this almost matchless experience. At a time when most of the voices originating from Syria are voices of sorrow and agony, Louai hopes to emit a different voice of resilience and perseverance.
