A successful entrepreneur, businessman and EO Bahrain member, Suhail Algosaibi had long thought about how he could use his position and his company—FALAK Consulting—to make real, radical and sustainable change in his corner of the world.
He also considered what separated him and the people he admired from his neighbors, local students, other Bahraini entrepreneurs and societal shapers, including government officials and corporate executives. After much thought, it came to him: the difference was in how they think!
An Unreasonable Idea
“The Middle East consists of developing nations and, sadly, we are consumers of innovation and create very little of it ourselves. We hardly invent any new technologies and don’t invest enough in research and development,” Suhail says. “I want to encourage more innovative thinking.”
He was inspired by a George Bernard Shaw quote, “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
