Atty. Fatima Al Heyari, a Bikolana and a resident of Jordan for 30 years, shares her insights on what it takes to successfully climb the corporate ladder as a professional in the Middle East.
Initially hired as a personnel in-charge of foreign filing, she gained the complete trust and confidence of the United Trademark and Patent Services — one of the oldest companies in the Middle East to offer legal advice for intellectual property law — to lead the company’s branch when it extended its operations in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
She is married to a Jordanian, Engineer Mohammed Al Heyari, whom she met back in the Philippines and later on married, and had successful children in various professions.
