6th December: Oday Abbosh
Oday Abbosh graduated from Imperial College with a degree in Mechanical Engineering before qualilifying as a Chartered Accountant with KPMG. However, things soon got more exciting for Oday as the Global Managing Partner of Accenture's Media & Entertainment business, where he worked on many world renowned entertainment brands across the world. Oday then moved on to serve as the Global Managing Partner of Accenture's Management Consulting business for the Comms, High Tech and Media industries and then finally to run Accenture’s Analytics business in Europe, Africa and Latin America. After more than 24 years across KPMG and Accenture, it was time to do something very different and more creative.
Oday's driving force in launching Ora was to bring back some genuine innovation, fun and
excitement into everyday life consumer products. He believes that aesthetics, smart thinking & determination can lead to products which can revolutionise established categories and bring more exciting products to market, which are actually better for the environment and the consumer alike. Ultimately, challenging the norm and having faith in lateral thinking will lead to better products all round.
Oday lives in London with his wife Colena, their sons Max & Harry and their super fluffy
white dog Sami.
