About Sarah-J Leadership Series
The UAE was, 40 years ago, a fisherman’s settlement and has since rapidly grown its GDP. This growth has brought political, societal and leadership demands which are being explored now more closely than ever.
Nowadays its industry relies more on tourism and small to medium businesses.
Developing the next generation of leaders is seen as a strategic challenge of national importance in the United Arab Emirates of late (Sage, 2017.) However, the situation is both complex and uncertain.
Over 2 days, participants will build their capacity in self-awareness, assertiveness, management, team dynamics, leadership and mindset growth. Delivered in partnership with local Universities, businesses and entrepreneurs the event boasts a vibrant platform which will showcase emerging leadership initiatives and unusual suspects in UAE leadership providing talent development and practical tools to help you to progress your career, reach the next level and achieve your potential.
