Kimi and I worked together at Expo2020. She was a highly motivated, committed and dedicated colleague and team player. She was one of the most engaged employees, and had no fear to work hard, often sacrificing personal and family time to get the job done. A self starter, who could be relied upon to get the job done (no micro management needed for her). She is committed to quality and excellence, and this was evident in all work projects and assignments. I would have no hesitation to recommend Kimi and without hesitation love to work with her again in the future.

As a global megaevent, EXPO2020 is a fast-paced & agile environment. Kimi executed innovative wellness programs which kept us employees healthy and engaged both physically & mentally. Although she just left us for new endeavours, her absence is already felt! Nevertheless, Kimi deserves nothing but the best & we wish her just that.

Kimi has had a profound impact on me personally but I also believe to my colleagues during her time at Expo 2020 Dubai. This was the first time that the concept of wellness as a major corporate initiative was part of my day to day dealings and leadership activity. Kimi introduced a range of topics, classes, and benefits to the Expo team and as such overcame a number of skeptics. Her work in this area along with her team has shown to me that this area is crucial to any organisation. Her enthusiasm, passion and dealings with everyone at Expo were to her credit. Kimi’s insights, knowledge and friendly attitude are an asset. Stand up desks for all!

The concept of wellness as a major corporate initative was new to me when I first met Kimi our Corporate Wellness Senior Manager at Dubai Expo 2020. Kimi’s real strength comes from her recognition that engagement plays a key role in the success of a wellness programme. Her prioritsation of this above all else ensured that the wellness programme truly resonated with staff and in a few cases changing life styles for the better. In addition Kimi was also able to bring a sense of fun to the programme and in doing so something that offered a topic of conversation across the organization that brought people together in the process. I have no hesitation in recommending Kimi and hope she is able to change more lifestyles across more organisations in the future. Now I’d better get back to that back stretch!
