I’m Hameed Yousuf, the Digital, Technology and Media Pioneer Ambassador for MEYE2020. I have been obsessed with the digital world for over a decade, consulting prominent brands and start-ups on their visibility on the digital platform. I’m a member of the Youth Media Council, under the National Media Council and have managed successful initiatives for the Governments of UAE and India – EXPO 2020, #HappyDubai, Hamdan.ae and International Yoga Day. Also known as Hami Vlogs on TV, social media and vlogs about tech, cars, gadgets, people’s achievements and CSR activities. I was recently titled ‘Most influential global youth marketing professional of 2019’ as a result of helping individuals with finding jobs and advocating youth to collaborate on startups and ideas that can change the world.
I’m also a part-time lecturer at Universities, Content Writer for prominent digital channels and mentor youth looking to build a career in digital media. I believe the most important challenge facing young people in the media is the limited resources for knowledge-sharing, largely conventional leadership, lack of youth ambassadors to follow and lack of insidious for training and moderation. Together we can make a difference and I look forward to being a speaker at MEYE 2020.
