Qatari writer, Maryam al-Mansoori, one of the top management consultants in the country, presently working as the chief support officer at Barzan Holdings, is set to publish her second book, titled ‘Flight 101”.

Maryam, who held senior management positions in some of the major organisations across different industries in Qatar, had penned her first book titled ‘The Fourth Floor’ published in 2017. While her first book dealt mainly with human resources and the corporate culture in Qatar, she has touched upon a variety of subjects in her new book which will be published soon.

“I wanted to write about issues faced by people in their daily lives. I’ve dwelled upon nearly 30 subjects, each of them presenting ideas, answers and solutions to issues related to everyone’s daily life, regardless of social, educational, cultural, economic or professional background,” said Maryam.

“For me, the best time for reflection is while I’m travelling. It’s often on long-haul flights that I get uninterrupted time, say about 7 to 10 hours continuously, to think about life and its challenges. I get time to connect the dots and evaluate my life’s journey. It was during one such flight that I got the idea for this book,” she added.

As for the title of the book, ‘Flight 101’ she said, “Number 101 is generally associated with human values such as inspiration and positive attitude. I believe these are traits which will help people to solve their problems.”

The book, in Arabic and English, is being published by Lusail Publishing House.

Khaled Mubarak al-Dulaimi, managing director, Lusail Publishing House, said this book dealt with self-development and believed it would make a good read.

“I’m sure this book will inspire the readers and boost their confidence to perform well in their lives. It provides answers to life’s many questions all around us. Maryam has taken a different approach and she’s looking at life from a different perspective. Yet, it’s simple and thought-provoking. The book addresses the concerns of a large segment of readers, from various age-groups and different backgrounds,” said Khaled.
