Hani is Lebanese, born in Beirut in 1967. He lives in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. He studied at the American University of Beirut, majoring in Economics. He continued his studies in later stages to get his MBA from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.
His first book Letters to Dalia: Reflections on Lebanon and the Middle East is the result of two and half years of work.
The messages in the book are numerous: tolerance, co existence, no blind following, the dangers of the abuse of religion and ideology, think, research, live, enjoy life, be artistic, and most of all find harmony with the self, soul, heart and mind. Aligning the four elements might hold the key to happiness.
The second book is a Novel entitled Conversation with Abed. Most part of this Novel was written in the beautiful area of Maria Wörth, a town in Austria. In this novel, Hani creates two characters: Sam and Abed. They are soul mates. They also like debating different topics. These topics, in addition to other characters as well, become the portraits of different aspects of life and people living in Arabia.
The third book is entitled Islam The Brand. It is a provocative book that handles the declining image of the brand Islam, and the prevailing perceptions around it. This is not a theological conversation; it is a purely cognitive, and communications led argument where both Muslims and no Muslims played a role in reaching this stage of deterioration on a brand level strictly.
Hani considers that knowing and learning are an endless journey. The three books are inspired by his daughters - Dala and Lea. Hani hopes he can complete the journey to know more and learn more.
As a renowned public speaker, Hani gives lectures worldwide in universities on media, culture, politics and current affairs.
