I'm a freelance copywriter, journalist and social media consultant based in Abu Dhabi, right next to Dubai, UAE.

As an ex-ad man, I've had the privilege of working for some of the hottest brands in the world from Microsoft, HP and Siemens to Adidas, Canon, Xerox, Etihad Airways, Emirates Airline, Jacuzzi, Taj Palace Hotels & Resorts, Millennium Hotels, KPMG, the United Nations and more.

As one of the first marketing bloggers in the Middle East, I am the Managing Editor of CopywriterJournalist.com - a blog that celebrates creativity and reaches a readership across more than 150 countries.

You can catch my tweets at @FarrukhNaeem. You're welcome to connect to my freelance copywriter on Facebook page if that's what you prefer.

My work has been featured in the Guinness Book of World Records (world’s biggest ad), Guardian UK, Campaign magazine, Communicate magazine, Forbes (Arabia), Newsweek USA, Gulf Marketing Review, University of Oxford, Zawya, Gulf News, Khaleej Times, and more.

As a freelance copywriter and social media consultant, you'll spot me speaking at industry events and conducting training sessions to help clients, students and the community harness the power of the internet and social media to communicate and achieve their goals.

Tip: If there’s something you need, you can bribe me with coffee and chocolate. Instant gratification!

Oh - and I'm addicted beyond any hope to the internet - if you haven't already noticed :-)
