The Dubai Leadership Summit (December 12-16, 2021)
About the Event
THE DUBAI LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
The Dubai Leadership Summit was initiated by the Commonwealth University and the London Graduate School consortium to serve as a forum to inspire leaders to exchange ideas and opinions about practical leadership challenges, and to enable leaders to benchmark good practices. The seminar is held every four times every year. The first summit was held in 2010. It has always been a huge success as scores of business leaders from Africa, Europe and Asia are usually in attendance. The programme consists of presentations by scholars and practitioners on major business and leadership themes. The key topics have been carefully selected after discussing with leaders and senior executives. Our purpose is to impact on decision makers by interacting with them.
When the board of the university initiated the summit, it was meant to encourage leaders like to come together to share perspectives with other professionals, business owners and senior executives and to gain from the coaching processes of the university.
