Back To Business


Take part in our Back To Business webinars

The world has been hit by the COVID-19 pandemic on an unprecedented scale. This once-in-a-lifetime occurrence has had an enormous impact on people’s lives and worldwide economies. We know that for many companies, right here in the UAE, life was tough during the pandemic. The economy definitely slowed down. But now the green shoots of recovery are beginning to sprout. Which is why we are going… BACK TO BUSINESS.

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Cisco – the guys who’ve kept us all connected via Webex – to bring you the information you need to drive your company forward. We are offering 40 business people, an exclusive opportunity to take part in our exclusive seminars. Our series of webinars will be beamed via Webex from Nasdaq Dubai, the region's international financial exchange.

In our penultimate edition of our Back to Business webinars, we’ll explore the topic of People Power.

It’s been a year like no other for Human Resource departments the world over.

When the economy came to a standstill, the biggest casualty in most organizations was staff numbers.

As we see the green shoots of recovery, we look at how some of the world’s best employers are keeping their staff engaged and motivated after a period of pay cuts, furloughs and redundancies.

This webinar will help you invigorate your staff, and get them motivated for a great 2021.

  • Consumer Confidence - Monday October 19th

    Our first programme will explore ways to re-energise consumer confidence, and global examples from brands that have shown relevancy during periods of economic pain.

  • Staying Lean - Monday 2nd November

    For many companies in the UAE, cutting costs quickly has been a necessity during the pandemic. That means costs have to be cut equally sharply – and the reality is that for many organizations, salaries are the #1 cost - being selective is key.  

  • Digitalisation - Sunday 15th November

    We’ll investigate how to combine a legacy physical business and a new online platform – going ‘phygital’ – so that neither suffers, and both thrive.

  • The Permanent Pivot - Sunday 29th November

    When does your Covid solution become business as usual? We’ll look at how to make the difficult decisions when it comes to realigning your business – simultaneously pivoting and protecting revenue streams.

  • People Power - Monday 11th January

    The pandemic has brought opportunities as well as contraction. We’ll look at how to take advantage of market fluctuations to expand into new territory.

  • New Horizons - Tuesday 26th January

    During this programme we will speak to companies who have made difficult staffing decisions about managing change, as well as experts in employee motivation, recruitment and retention, and empathetic leadership to hear first-hand the challenges, and the best practice solutions.
