“For today’s youth, there is a fascination for physical exercises and fitness. However, we must encourage thinking in our younger generation as it is an essential everyday exercise to keep sharp the most important faculty that distinguishes mankind. Just as there are regimens for disciplined physical exercise, creative and constructive thinking habits could also be nurtured and developed systematically.”

“It is not often that commercial business can be leveraged effectively to help solve major social issues, develop the local economy and enhance the leadership position of a country all at the same time. The IPO of CERT is designed to provide a unique opportunity to invest in a highly profitable business with exceptional returns and global outlook. The CERT value Pyramid shows the mutual benefits of investors and the socio-economic benefits to the UAE.”

“CERT has a bold, but realistic vision of its future and that of the UAE. What is particularly impressive is that given the strength of its present leadership, personnel, partners and resources, the organization is already well-qualified to provide technology and training solutions to clients worldwide. It would be a mistake to regard CERT as having only regional capabilities.”

“Consider what we have achieved here in the past 30 years. If we can do all this; then, it is a safe bet that we can produce a generation of entrepreneurs to take it all forward.”
