Kick Off Meeting

Hi everyone,

I am keen to hold our very first meeting in the New Year so that we can get to know each other, shape how we want the meetings to work and start to share our knowledge of managing organizational change.

Let's use this time to create a plan for 2014 of the key topics we want to learn more about in the Change Management field. I am also keen to invite speakers to our meetings in future so we can also brainstorm and see if we have some key contacts in the region who would be keen to share their knowledge with our group.

Looking forward to meeting you all.

Emma

    Hello Geo, Good initiative. Checked the folder and await first set of documents. Can members contribute documents ? How will documents contributed by members be uploaded. Suggest that we could have a Topic / Title based Index which would assist classify documents under each Topic. Let me know your thoughts.

      Hi Santosh. I'm just assisting Emma in the technical issues. I leave the structuring and uploading the files for her. If you want to contribute any document, please share the file with Emma and she will save it in the right folder. Thanks.

    Wishing You All a Happy and Healthy New Year. Was unfortunate not to attend the kick off, since I was traveling.
    Congrats Emma !!!!! 14 people attended the kick off, which is a great beginning. I had the opportunity to meet Emma at the ACMP MENA in Jan 2013. The ACMP MENA 2014 is round the corner in February from 4th to 6th and it is a must attend event.
    I am back in Dubai and look forward to being there at the next meeting of this group. Cheers!!!

    It was really nice meeting everyone today. The fact that each one is coming from a different background / profession will definitely enrich our future discussions. Thanks Emma again for organizing this, and looking forward for the next meetup!

    Hi Can anyone direct me how to reach the venue. I am new to Dubai and will be coming by metro so any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    • Emma M.

      Hi Raj, Dubai Marina is the closest metro stop, once you get out I think it might be easier to get a taxi around to Swiss Tower in Cluster Y, will only be about 5 mins but easier than walking through JLT.

    Happy New Year, really looking forward to meeting you all on Sat morning.
