hosted by myOffice and The PR Professionals
myOffice Business Solutions Center and The PR Professionals initiated a high profile, women's only event for entrepreneurial and high achieving women across the UAE. Sam Malik from The PR Professionals and Melissa O'Neil from myOffice strategized the event off the back of the International Women's Day that was celebrated on Saturday 9th March 2013.
The women's only event took place at Thiptara, The Palace Hotel, Downtown Dubai against the stunning backdrop of the Burj Khalifa. The decision was taken to host this women's only event as part of an incentive to bring innovative women together within the UAE.
Sam Malik Managing Director and Owner of The PR Professionals:
‘'It is important to initiate events of this sort as we get so busy in our day to day business routine that we forget the potential we retain within a group of highly professional women. We generate great business amongst ourselves therefore it is vital to mix women of likeminded background and of similar caliber.
Gina Costa from Avventura Group spoke at the networking event that attracted several women business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs. She walked through her journey of setting up her business and shared words of encouragement with women who were interested in setting up their own business.
Melissa O'Neil, General Manager of myOffice:
‘'We were really pleased tying up with The PR Professionals to host the first ‘Women in Business' event. We have many international enquiries that come through our business centre, but only a few from entrepreneurial businesswomen. After meeting Sam and having several in depth discussions, we both realized that there are many women who aspire to set up their business or who have already established their company and are looking for likeminded support. We met with some really inspirational women and are looking forward to our next event”.
Each ‘Women in Business' event will have a different focus point to aid and engage pioneering women who want to learn more about the constantly evolving industry. We will be involving influential women from the business front to co-operatively strategize key business focus points and share ideas with other higher management females.
Women in Business would like to thank The Palace Hotel, Lama Bazzari CEO of NStyle, Gina Costa from Avventura Group and Hyku Desestos from Hyku Photography for their continuous support.
