Dubai, UAE, 05 May 2015 - The Dubai Business Women Council (DBWC), the renowned official representative organization for business women, both professionals and entrepreneurs, in the Emirate of Dubai, hosted international delegates from Global Terminology to discuss the acceptance of the challenge involved with leading and the role of “Leaders as Effective Communicators’.
