What clients say about me
Bilal is a game-changer. Back in 2013, I had an ambitious plan to transform the Rabea communication model and explore how social media can help us deliver on our strategic objectives. Bilal not only won that pitch (fair and square), but he actually structured the framework and guided us through an amazing 3 year journey (that is still continues). He delivered on what he positions himself to be: a transformational strategist, thought-leader, and was always open for collaboration on ideas, choices
Khaled Tash, Chief Marketing Office
Bilal is one of the only people I know who are perfectly matched for the career they are in. Bilal's passion for digital is contagious to both co-workers and clients. He has a great ability to easily build relationships with clients and is highly respected by everyone he interacts with both professionally and socially. Bilal has an amazing attention to detail and as such understands the solutions he presents to clients at a higher level than most strategists & consultants.
Myko La, Creative Director
It is my pleasure to recommend Bilal Hallab - our digital advocate. Within 2 years he became an experienced activation specialist who combines deep digital knowledge with shrewd business acumen. His enthusiasm and knowledge when it comes to digital is unseen. Not least, he’s also a rare pioneer in digital activation & social media in the region - where he successfully nurtured many key clients. I’m sure that Bilal will prosper in his new venture and I wish him the very best of luck.
