Coming soon to a conference near you...ME!

I've got a busy day next Wednesday (27 June, 2012).  I'm speaking at not one but two events on the same day.

I'll be speaking first at an event hosted by the Department of Economic Development entitled "Culture of Service Excellence" where I'll be speaking about social media.  The event is open to all members of the Dubai Service Excellence Scheme (DSES) so if you are a retailer and are a member of the DSES, it would be an excellent opportunity to come and hear about what we're doing as retailers in the UAE.  Apart from myself, there are a few other speakers and since it is a half-day session, it could be well worth sending a few delegates from your company there.  A copy of the flyer is shown below but basically it is a half day event from 8:30am onwards till 1pm at the Business Village (next to the Maktoum Bridge in Deira).

Later that day, I'm also going to be speaking at the Channel ME Conference hosted by ITP.  The title for this event is "Preparing for Growth in the Middle East Channel" and focuses on the challenges many SME's face in growing their business within the region.  If you are in IT, this could be well up your alley.  I will be part on a panel discussion talking about marketing and business communication for SME's.  This event is being held at the Emirates Towers on the morning of 27 June, 2012 as well.  I know ITP can still send out invitations to delegates interested in attending this event.  Details of this can be found on

My first presentation will be at 9:00am at the Business Village and my second gig will be around noon time at the Emirates Towers so I'm hope for clear roads and little traffic in my way as I zip my way through town on that morning.
