I am not afraid of Change !

We have had a wonderful week in Abu Dhabi with The Marketing Society

Last Tuesday evening our Chair Amina Taher, Etihad hosted an Under the Spotlight with the incredible HE Dr Nawal Al-Hosany. Dr Nawal shared stories from the success of COP28, youth programmes, how she continues to inspire and uplift female talent and we also got to her personal stories too including being the 2nd female Emirati to climb Kilimanjaro.

A very impressive leader - resilient, inspiring, confident, highly ambitious but very humble. The feedback we've had from members has echoed the above.

Here are our favourite quotes from the night:

·        “I feel very proud about helping to create the Women in Sustainability, Environment and Renewable Energy – I just didn’t tell my boss the acronym until we launched (WiSER)”.

·        “I am the oldest sibling with 8 sisters and 3 brothers - it’s meant Youth Empowerment is a family matter”.

·        “The happiest day of my life was when I was walking through New York City and got the call that the UAE had won Cop28”.

·        “If you don’t get out of your space, you won’t get to connect with amazing people that you don’t know. “

·        “Every contact leaves a trace…”

A big thanks to the society for organising this wonderful event.
