It has been my pleasure to work with Emad on issues related to career guidance as well as TEVT. Emad is very professional in his approach to work, is efficient and effective in handling responsibilities, while managing to remain pleasant and courteous under stress. He is highly respected among local and international colleagues for his ability to work in different cultural contexts, and is always open to learning and to developing his skills and competences.

The International Career Guidance expert
I have known Emad Helmy since 2014 when I met him for the first time at a workshop for career guidance providers in Belgrade, Serbia. During the workshop along with a colleague, he demonstrated an activity to the participants that drew upon simple everyday life, but at the same time communicated important career guidance messages.
I met him again at a workshop organized by the International Labour Organization in Egypt that focused on developing a road map for career guidance in Egypt. Emad was an active participant and contributed from his considerable experience of implementing career guidance services in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. I also met Emad at the International Center for Career Development and Public Policy symposium held in Tromso, Norway at which he represented Egypt. Here too, his contributions were substantial with reference to the MENA region. I wish him the very best.

His extra-ordinary ‘people skills’ allow him to work in different cultural settings with all sorts of people and make him a fantastic trainer who ‘translates’ philosophical foundations and principles into the ‘words’ of ordinary people by developing images, games and metaphors that blend into the context on the levels of individuals, institutions and policy-makers alike. For me, Emad is a ‘bridge-builder’, a hands-on practitioner who knows how to link theory and practice, a teacher and learner at the same time, a good project manager and an extremely pleasant colleague to collaborate with … “
