Ramez Helou has personal field experience and an inspirational attitude that has made him an extraordinary force in sales and negotiation training programs. Often referred as the 'SALES DOCTOR', Ramez is one of the top keynote speakers in the Middle East.
With a history that includes international company ownership, multi-million dollar sales and some of the highest industry accolades, Ramez is a master trainer and consultant who energizes and challenges his audiences to increase sales results.
At just 19 years of age, Ramez began his career in direct sales while studying International Business at Villanova University in Philadelphia, USA.

In a bold move from Philadelphia to Puerto Rico, Ramez broadened his experience and portfolio, successfully building a revolving sales force of more than 300 team members in 10 branch locations including Costa Rica.

More recently, Ramez worked at Unilever Food Solutions in Dubai where he held positions as the company’s Head of Sales, Business Head and Regional Sales Training Manager for Asia, Africa and the Middle East. He also authored the organization’s “Global B2B Sales Training Program”, which is still used across the world today.
In another series of phenomenal results, Ramez implemented new strategies and instilled new energy into his teams to turn Unilever Food Solutions Middle East sales from a five year losing streak into profitability.
In 2010,Ramez realized that the best way to use his extraordinary talents was to share them.
