Our founder Adel came from humble beginnings. In 1976, at the age of 12, he migrated to Australia with his family for a fresh start from war-torn Lebanon. Despite the apparent challenges in adapting to a new culture and learning a foreign language, Adel excelled in school and was accepted into the prestigious University of New South Wales (UNSW), where he graduated with an Honours in Civil Engineering.
After more than a decade of working for various companies in the project delivery industry, Adel made the jump to start his own business. In 2001, blueVisions was established with the aim to close the customer experience gap and produce better project outcomes for clients. blueVisions would expand its offering by including capability development and enabling clients to become their own source of success through the establishment of the Institute of Management in 2006.
Enterprising and immensely passionate about making a positive difference, Adel believed that understanding and appreciating the clients’ requirements is key to the success of any project. He also had an uncanny ability to size up situations and articulate the issue in the simplest terms possible. Because of these skills, complemented by a commanding presence, strong attention to detail, and a strategic project planning ability, many have said that he was the perfect mix of a great project manager and inspiring business leader. This was evident in his highly motivated team, acknowledgements received from his peers as well as the high levels of repeat business.
blueVisions & the Institute of Management and our founders unwavering dedication and hard work – restless business journeys, long-haul flights, sleeping with one eye-open (as he used to describe it) to endless emails and phone calls – has seen both brands evolve into the remarkable organisations they are today, ensuring a secure future for his family.
Adel passed away in 2020 after a long battle with cancer, both brands put in place a succession plan to ensure the longevity of the company and its services were protected.
Molita Khreich and the executive management team at the Institute of Management continue to uphold the values instilled by Adel and further his vision to deliver the highest level of capability development to clients across Australia, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East.
Today, both blueVisions and the Institute of Management is a thriving consultancy and training organisation spanning Australia, South-East Asia and the Middle East.
Our intention is to always empower our people and to focus on making our clients their own source of success.
After 20 years of delivering our great country and clients, we look forward to continuing the legacy and building great talent over the next twenty.
