Entrepreneurs’ Organisation (EO) UAE, the local chapter of the dynamic global network of entrepreneurs, hosted an exclusive executive education event for its members called “The Foundations of Growth”. The two day session that took place at The Meydan Hotel, was attended by 75 EO members (including members from other chapters in the region) and was led by John Mullins, renowned Associate Professor from London Business School.
As EO members plan the growth of their businesses and increase in sales and profits, the objective of the event was to provide EO members a customized and dedicated program offering them a spectrum of tools needed to tackle the challenges that come hand-in-hand with a growth strategy. Key takeaways from the event included financial planning, cash management, relationship/partnership building, customer service and loyalty.
Bilal Alibhai, EO UAE President said: “EO is known for its wide range of unique and customized learning events offered to its members throughout the year. Expanding a business is a crucial step for any business and our objective is to always add strings to our members’ bow. We aim to accompany them in their pathway to more success. We were honored to have John Mullins with us, a high-calibre professor from Europe’s number one business school, to share his experience and provide a concise plan on how to grow business.”
John Mullins, Associate Professor, London Business School: “The Entrepreneurs’ Organization here in the UAE is dedicated to helping its members. The foresight to align with an international business school to bring international best practice to this dynamic and entrepreneurial country – is very strong.”
EO UAE was the first chapter globally to host a two day executive education event with a professor from a leading business school and plans to hold similar events annually for its members. Apart from the executive education event EO UAE holds learning events every month for its members with business leaders and renowned speakers in order to help members gain insight on taking their business to the next level.
