I have known Moustafa for approx 13 years, but for the last three years I have been in the very fortunate position of being his academic colleague, here at the University of Birmingham, where he has been running the highly successful and popular Introduction to Disaster Management module for our masters students. Moustafa’s modules are always oversubscribed and audited by as many people as we can legally fit into the lecture room.
I have known Moustafa for many years within Islamic Relief HQ, Birmingham. Moustafa is a dedicated and professional Humanitarian worker with exceptional leadership skills. I was very pleased to hear that Moustafa is teaching students interested in Humanitarian work at Birmingham University because alleviating poverty is a long term commitment requiring dedication, experience and the ability to adapt to the challenges facing the developing world. Moustafa is a visionary leader with the ability to transfer the complex and challenging realities on the ground into a feasable clear action plan incorporating clear goals and outcomes for the communities [he] serves.
I would like to recommend Mr. Moustafa Osman as a unique and well-experienced lecturer in Disaster Management and Humanitarian Intervention. He is an inspiring person for all students around him. Moreover, he amazingly mixes theories with his real massive experiences from all over the world. If any institution is looking for people who can make a difference, definitely Mr. Osman would be the right person
Moustafa is one of the best lecturers I have ever come across. His style is interactive and energising and he has a wealth of up to date knowledge on disaster management that he shares willingly, bringing the subject to life. In 2007, I made a life changing decision to change career paths from the private sector to International Development – Moustafa you showed me that I had made absolutely the right choice, inspiring me to follow through. Thank you
I have come to know Moustafa as a very dedicated humanitarian professional who is able to build bridges between NGOs from various backgrounds.
