Age: 28

Nada El Barshoumi, Associate Director, Weber Shandwick: Evita Karam is an outstanding PR professional who deserves to be recognized as one of Campaign’s Agency Faces to Watch. A trusted consultant to her clients and an inspiration to her peers, Evita’s bold, no-nonsense sensibility and a keen eye for communications make her a cut above the rest.

Career highlights

From a Junior Associate to an Associate Manager in just four years, and as one of the few consultants in the Abu Dhabi office with experience in both public affairs and consumer PR, I currently manage and consult for key leisure and entertainment destinations in Abu Dhabi as well as those in the government and semi-government sector. Over the years, I was awarded the WS MENAT – Active Achiever of the Year award (Abu Dhabi) and have been recognized amongst my peers as an outstanding performer with several other internal awards including the Hakawaty Storyteller of the Year award in 2017, 2018 and 2020.

Guiding principles

Enthusiasm, curiosity, perspective-taking and pushing the status quo.

Aside from creating a deeper understanding of the human experience, career-wise, seeing situations from different angles allows one to understand what’s missing, identify opportunities, and generate inventive ideas. Coupled with the right mindset, can-do attitude, and passion… the world is your playground!
