From a young age, Michelle Garnier-Chedotal committed herself to lifelong learning and continuous personal growth.
The principles that have been guiding her in everyday life involve self-belief and sheer determination with positive mental attitude. The breadth of her knowledge is derived from the diversity of the careers with which she has been involved from being an executive in a booming hospitality and leisure sector to becoming a self-made entrepreneur in air-conditioning and refrigeration services for competitive energy and marine industries.
Michelle sought the opportunities to come out of a violent and unhealthy family environment when she was in her young age. It led her to believe that education and clear commitment to self-development were the cornerstones to eliminating individual deprivation and social exclusion. Much of her life since then has been focused on those values in all areas of her day-to-day existence.
"My journey has been incredible. I started out as an au pair girl living in England and Italy from the age of 16 years old, then moved on to work in emergency hospital wards to earn enough money to go back to school and earn a degree” she says.
Michelle has gained through her career in the business world a vast experience at management level and can be referred as a committed executive and achiever. Michelle spent 25 years in the Hotel, Service and Golf Industries where she worked to promote Dubai as an Emerging Golfing Destination in the world and this, for over 15 years.
