Dr. Tayeb Kamali Chairman, UAE Chapter Institute Of Directors, India & Director General, Education Training Development, Ministry of Interior, UAE
I have pleasure in inviting you to the 27th World Congress on 'Leadership for Business Excellence & Innovation' being held on 18-20 April, 2017, at The Hotel, Grand Hyatt Dubai (UAE).
Today's executive are facing increasing pressure to achieve profitable growth, resulting from changes in economic landscape, geopolitical shifts, new technologies, shortened product life cycles, cross-cultural communications, global competition and changing consumer behaviour. All of these variables present new challenges, as well as a unique set of opportunities. Business leaders must be able to align corporate strategy and execution, to position their organisations for long-term success in the global marketplace.
Managing disruptive innovation is rooted more in leadership and organizational capabilities, than in technological prowess. Winning through innovation is about managing contradictions and taking advantage of technology cycles to proactively shape tomorrow's innovation streams. Open innovation is increasingly being embraced by industries and business as a key tool to navigate, sustain and grow an enterprise in the changing landscape. Innovations stimulate growth, and businesses place a high priority on innovation because new ideas, products and processes translate directly to higher profits and corporate growth.
The UAE, one of the fastest developing nations, derives its position from a holistic, government initiated approach, towards business excellence and innovation. The footprints of UAE are significant, and hold much for the nations to learn and apply. Destination Dubai makes for a perfect backdrop to discuss and deliberate, given the unprecedented business opportunities offered by this fast growing entrepreneurial capital of the Middle-East.
Dubai Global Convention is a flagship event of the 'Institute Of Directors', India, being held annually. The convention is a platform conceptualised to bring together opportunities for learning and sharing between the member and associated companies and organisations, covering transformational leadership for disruptive innovation and business excellence. A one of its kind initiative, the convention brings forth diverse companies and dignitaries on one platform, to critically discuss various themes of achieving Business Excellence, and explore giant business collaborations.
I look forward to welcoming you all, at the 'Dubai Global Convention', on 18 April, 2017
Dr. Tayeb Kamali
