Dubai 2017

Our second EMEA Conference will take up where we left off in Cape Town.  With Dubai and the Middle East poised for even more growth over the coming decade, what implications might this have for our industry across the region and the continent?

We will use our programme to look at the economic and cultural challenges that face people relocating to the Middle East as well as how compliance impacts on the mobility supply chain.  What exactly are the complexities of working in the region with the increased requirements of Privacy Shield and the new EU Data Regulations?

When the work is done, we have built three great networking opportunities into the programme; our Gala Dinner in the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, the networking lunch during the conference day and our outstanding Party Venue at The Palace Downtown Hotel overlooking the incredible Dubai Fountain at the Burj Khalifa.

Rooms in the superb 5* Jumeirah Creekside Hotel cost from €160 plus tax.  

Join us in this amazing city, to share, meet, learn & network.

Please note, you cannot add guests to your online booking.  If you would like to bring a guest, please call the office on +44 1379 640883 or contact Maree Ninow maree@eura-relocation.com.

WEDNESDAY 22nd NOVEMBER

MIM+ ACCREDITED TRAINING DAY

09:30 - 17:00 - MYERS BRIGGS TYPE INVENTORY AND ITS IMPACT ON MOBILITY

Trainer:  Dr Carmelina Lawton Smith, Director of Education, EuRA

This course will introduce delegates to the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI) personality framework. The MBTI is a formal personality assessment tool used by qualified practitioners around the world to support personal development. However, the framework can be used informally as a way to understand individual difference and to define appropriate strategies for working with different ‘types’.  Building an understanding of the MBTI framework can help to build relationships, inform communication strategies and expand self-awareness. It can be a valuable aid to understanding your own personal preferences and how this might be influencing how you are perceived by others. We will evaluate the framework in the context of relocation when working with multiple stakeholders and a diversity of nationalities.  This day of training is worth 50 CPD points towards all MIM certifications.

This training day is open to delegates who choose the Training Enhancement to their Conference Place.
