Global organisations adapt

“Dubai is different, unique in many ways. Here we must be dynamic in our programme delivery, to uphold our international reputation and to observe regional conventions”

“I joined London Business School as cover for a Senior Programme Manager. I guess it’s no surprise, in an institution that is constantly developing ideas and people, I too would go through a transformation. During my time in Dubai, I’ve held many positions and performed many roles – sometimes all at once! I have been able to work closely with different departments across the School network and each experience has strengthened my overall perspective.”

Recently, I’ve had time to explore opportunities with the Ministry of Education in the UAE. Working collaboratively, we have put forward ambitious proposals that will create a long-lasting impact in the region. Our plans are bold, but Dubai is a hub of bold plans and people – many of them work, study or lecture at LBS. Take for instance, a workshop I joined earlier this year for thought leaders in education with Her Excellency Noura bint Mohammed Al Kaabi; she presented her bold and inspiring vision for Dubai’s role in knowledge development.

A working family

“Receiving maternity leave meant I could remain ambitious in my career.”

“Taking time out to have children hasn’t hindered my career progress or goals. I was eased back into my role through flexible working and I received additional support for my childcare needs. Now my children are two and four years old, we go to the beach at weekends, visit parks and swimming pools – Dubai is great for young families.

“Similar to London Business School, my network is spread across the globe. I have parents in Orlando, siblings in New York and Miami, friends around the world from my MBA in China plus my husband’s family in Kuwait. Dubai is a global transport hub, so it’s easy for me to travel anywhere and for friends to visit me.”

Open minds

“Everyone is happy to share their experience and knowledge. You’ll never be short of inspiration.”
