Abdullah Interviews Abdulrahman Al-Nouri & Al-Qattan
Some boys kept sending me emails complaining that I dont have male guests on p0ach.com no more, I beg to differ ofcourse but I wont get into further details, I , my dear darling earthling beings, brought you not one Abdulrahman, but two, two Abdulrahman’s, two of the brightest men out there in one interview, so no more talking/complaining, yes ? Talk about sexist, eh ? Ladies you better fire back, boys are jealous. I can confirm that for sure.
Allow me to just say that in my humble opinion, p0ach.com today is the ultimate Kuwaiti web platform to promote local talents, new business establishments and everything energetic, full of life, hawt, new, fresh and hits right back at us, right back to Kuwait.
What is the concept behind Cubical Services you ask ?
A: You have an idea, would like to establish your own business BUT you dont know what to do ? who to contact, where to go, who to trust, how much, value, expensive, cheap correct wrong, yes ?
B: You have a business, probably home based, you’d like to grow and rent/build/create your own shop but dont have the know-how’s ?
YOU GO TO CUBICAL SERVICES.
In short, Thats what they do. They lead you through their intensely complicated systems/intense research to the easiest most useful time managed plans thats out there today. All you have to do is choose what works with you.
Not only that, you get to have your own office, meeting room, your personal account manager, your assistant, all combined with todays latest technological advancements at the palm of your hands, you also get people from this country as vibrant and as fresh as you are helping you do everything you want, your way.
The other day I went to their office, had a nice chat with them, they probably thought im KOKO in the brain cuz I was exhausted and I said the nastiest things imaginable, HAH! Seriously though, the guys are just wonderful, know what they are doing, down to earth and extremely easy to deal with.
I wish I could end this interview and talk all about their services myself but I know you’d shove a cheese sandwich in my mouth to shut me up. That being said, lemme give you the boys and let them do the talking.
Boys, speak to us !
Abdulrahman Alnouri, 24 years old bachelor in accounting. I’m a partner in Cubical Services and also working at Kuwait Oil Tanker Company – Finance Accounts Department. My interests include reading and Water sports.
Lets go back, childhood flashes, what comes to your mind ?
Alnouri: I remember Fridays at the grandparent’s house very vividly. When we were children Abdulrahman and I would take money from our grandfather, go to the co-op and buy lots of candy, chocolates and “khamacheer”. Then we go back to the house and sell them to the family, with a modest profit of course!
Alqattan: I think at the time subconsciously we knew that one day we would grow up and be partners running our own business. Our grandfather, Ibraheem Alqattan, is one of our biggest inspirations. He was one of the pioneer members of the Kuwait Chamber of Commerce. We always looked up to him.
What inspired you to start Cubical Services ?
Alqattan: Abdulrahman and I had a business idea in mind. We were both working long hours at the time and had many family, social and personal commitments. Neither one of us had the time nor resources to plan and execute the business properly. As a result, we never took full advantage of this idea. It was a frustrating experience, but out of that Cubical Services was born.
Alnouri: We realized that we weren’t the only people who had a business idea but didn’t have the time, the business start-up “know-how”, or the budget to see it through. Kuwait is full of young and ambitious business owners who have incredible ideas they want to build, or have excellent businesses they want to expand. We want to help these people realize their vision. Cubical Services is built to remove these barriers to success.
Alqattan: We have a team dedicated to streamlining your business processes. Our clients are assigned an office manager who will help regulate the administrative side of starting a business, and allow our clients to focus on setting their strategies and managing their growth. The office manager will handle your correspondence, set up your meetings, talk to your suppliers and clients (under your instruction and supervision). The office manager is here to support and do anything within his or her capacity to increase your productivity and decrease your routine workload.
Alnouri: We have also created “Steps”, a program designed to help those with an idea for a business venture see their idea come to life. Our team will guide you through each step of the way, from how to do your market research and feasibility study all the way to marketing your product or service when you’re ready to launch. Not knowing how to start-up your business is no longer a limiting reason. We help you draw a map and walk with you step by step to reach your goal.
Alqattan: Cubical Services also minimizes the costs associated with running a business. Rather than worrying about finding office space, paying monthly maintenance and overhead bills and hiring support staff, you can leave that to us. We have fully furnished offices and board rooms for our clients to hold one-on-one and group meetings.
Alnouri: We can also help international businesses. Cubical Services is an excellent first stop for any company interested in gaining access to Kuwait. We are here to minimize the hassles and expenses of establishing your presence locally by handling all the Kuwait-related business processes.
So how are you different from competitors ?
Alnouri: Cubical Services is the first company to offer these services in Kuwait. We offer fully equipped offices and board rooms, but our business is not built on renting these offices out to clients, they are shared. Moreover, our services are provided for a simple subscription fee. We do not enforce revenue sharing or taking a stake in our clients’ businesses.
Alqattan: While it is true that we can advise you on handling the administrative process side of your business, your business is yours to run as you please. We are not strategic consultants, although our service provider network contains many consultants who we can put you in contact with.
Tell me more things you want the readers to know about your business ?
Alqattan: We strive to maintain the highest standards of professionalism and quality. We want you to know that our staff takes your business very seriously, and will do everything they can to help you succeed. We also value the confidentiality of your business. We will not share your details or details of your project with anyone unless we get your explicit approval. We are very serious about maintaining the confidentiality of our clients, and keeping their trust.
Alnouri: We also designed our website to include a unique access to the web portal for each of our clients. All your service requests can be made online, you have your document management system on the portal, and you can easily communicate with your office manager. You don’t need to be in Kuwait to run your business. You can run it from anywhere.
Your support system ?
Alnouri: Everyone needs support to reach success. We had lots of support from our parents, family and friends. Without them we would not be where we are today.
Alqattan: Our employees have also been terrific, especially leading up to our launch. They were passionate, energetic and at times really patient. We really appreciate all the support they gave us.
Throw something for poach readers !
Alnouri: When you think about it, the company that you currently work for was started by somebody. Whether small or big, it does not matter. Somebody had the inspiration and motivation to accomplish something, took the risk, and made it happen. What’s to stop you from doing something similar?
Alqattan: We always love to hear people’s ideas and visions, and share our own. We are happy to see what fellow young Kuwaitis have achieved, and what their dreams and visions are. We’d love to hear from p0ach.com readers, and encourage them to drop us a line via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we’ll be happy to respond.
A BIG thank you to p0ach.com for having us.
