2019 Back In Business

Cliches aside, there really never is a better time to embrace and leverage a brand new business opportunity than the seemingly shiny start of a new year.  Psychologically it lures us in, a veritable fresh sheet where we can cast aside the clutter, ready to take bold new steps in to a certain future of businessy-optimism. Sound familiar? Of course, in the real world, rhetoric and reality are a far cry apart involving a great deal of hard work, a steady supply of cold hard cash and a healthy stroke of good luck. Having said that, it would seem that there is plenty we can do to get ahead in 2019, to help further businesses and enable careers to flourish here in the UAE.

With this in mind, Dubai Eye 103.8 will be getting ‘Back in Business’ this January, with a series of inspirational interviews, practical advice and helpful hints to help make 2019 a fruitful one. As well as insight and pipeline predictions for the year ahead on The Business Breakfast, Off Script will speak to experts who will provide the tools to brush up on those all-important soft skills. How long is the perfect CV? Are you using your LinkedIn profile effectively enough? Perhaps there has never been a better time to take the next step on the company career ladder with the help of a new qualification?
