Having found its start in 2007, Evo Sports Qatar has made itself the enthusiastic and encouraging front-runner of Qatar’s multi-sport coaching industry. Working hard to support a myriad of different clients across all levels and kinds of sports, its passion is in encouraging positivity and inclusivity in the sporting world by ensuring its services are as accessible and friendly as possible, each staff member helping make this a reality. Evo Sports Qatar’s mission is to show its clients that anyone can get involved with sports. Whether its professional coaching, team sports, getting fit, making friends, holiday sports, or just finding a new hobby, Evo Sports Qatar promises to ignite a new drive in everyone who walks through its doors. Due to this focus on the people behind the sports, its operations keep the members at the heart of the operation. Its reputation is one of respect, professionalism, inclusion, and pride, and it is excited to share this with so many more people long into the future as it continually grows in the sports training and activities it can offer, a notoriety which saw them chosen as a case study to demonstrate the benefits of community sport during Qatar’s FIFA World Cup 2022 bid. Moreover, based at Doha College, it has grown up with some of the country’s best sporting facilities. In opening these up to everyone, it makes sports fun and easy to get into for anyone and everyone in the local area, with professional coaches on hand to teach everything from soccer to swimming, basketball, netball, fencing, archery and all around fitness. Additionally, its Evo Minis provision ensures that even the youngest members of the community can start finding their feet in sport. Run by qualified coaches, children under six can enjoy a fun and active timetable of training that takes them from the basics right through to specific skills and techniques. However, Evo Sports Qatar isn’t just for the little ones, and the community it has built has members as young as 18 months and older people alike, building strong relationships with organisations and groups all across its region. It also holds tight to a core philosophy of developing the person before the player. Its staff will always work on a friendly, empathetic, and personal level with members in order to truly get to know them and learn how best to teach them, allowing them to grow as people as well as athletes with this support system at their back. Therefore, Evo Sports Qatar is an environment where members have the time and space to develop, with aspects that are challenging, developmental, and inspirational, underpinned by the club’s sporting values. Its coaches also adopt and encourage a ‘growth mindset’; without failure, there is no development. This aided Evo Sports Qatar during the trials of Covid-19, as it refused to simply be satisfied with closing up, instead pivoting to online training for its members and developing robust health and safety procedures that are implemented seamlessly in all programmes, ensuring it will welcome members back into the safest possible environment. Consequently, going forward, it is coming back bigger and better than ever, developing new state- of-the-art facilities and building up to the Qatar FIFA World Cup in 2022 with its partners and members alike. Company: Evo Sports Qatar Contact: Toyan Greaves Website: Medical Devices and the Future of Healthcare ChitoTech is the company that has worked hard to secure the ‘Best Wound Care Products and Antiseptic Solutions Company’ accolade in 2021 forWestern Asia. Serving hospitals, clinics, and the patients those institutes look after, its wound care, rapid diagnosis, and antiseptics have propelled it into becoming a household name during the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. A company developed from a research facility, the idea for ChitoTech was born from the study of marine biopolymers and their applications in modern medicine. Being such a specialist medical devices company, its work now lies in the provision of advanced wound care devices such as haemostatic products, nanocollodial silver antiseptics, hygiene products, and more, with 16 years of experience in this that has secured its name as one of those at the top of its field. Additionally, it is a foremost voice in a new kind of research, looking into commercialising rapid tests that can diagnose infections in bodily fluids. This company’s drive for success has been empowered by the founder and her own ambitions; Dr Sohelia S. Kordestani is a protein chemist with a vision of how the medical device industry could shape the future of medical technology, having cut her teeth working as a research fellow at the Department of Medicine at Birmingham University. The introduction and implementation of innovative medical treatments replaces outdated traditional procedures and technologies eventually. Fundamentally, this is something that Dr Kordestani wants to ensure continues to happen, with the newest and best front runners of human ingenuity being made available to hospitals and medical care facilities who need the support of such innovations. Serving hospitals, clinics, and as non-prescription medicine providers, ChitoTech’s products are used by surgeons in operations, nurses, and patients, helping them to handle wounds of all types, from pressure ulcers and burns to diabetic foot. This, in essence, has set them apart from the competition in an exemplary manner, as it has grown up with the understanding that the most important product attributes are how they will best serve the patient, with a marketing team effectively targeting the healthcare market to show it how ChitoTech can help. Further empowering its growth has been the excellence found within its own R&D team. Crucially, this group of people are self-motivated, excited, and active in the company’s efforts to work towards solving the challenges faced by modern medicine, an attitude mirrored by the entirety of ChitoTech’s staff as a whole. It also works by way of an organisational chart – a way in which it can ensure transparency in the workplace by way of implementing oversight – which has helped ensure ChitoTech can meet its goals quickly, efficiently, and with the strength of a united team. Moreover, this has increased the level of communication within the team itself, something that has propelled ChitoTech leaps and bounds when it comes to organising itself financially and in terms of operational infrastructure; with so many expenses incurred before the product reaches the market, it has to consistently ensure these are watertight across the board. It therefore wishes to thank the staff who make this possible, managing everything from patent application to registration and competition management, allowing for the developing of its ‘ChitoCheck’ product and antiseptics to aid with testing and hygiene during Covid-19. This is something it will continue to develop and improve as it moves forwards towards the future, creating more rapid diagnosis tests for infection and other disorders, and ready to provide its aid to its market segment however it needs.
