Pakistani Professionals Abroad Networking Event

Dear Members,


As you already know that merely after 9 meetups we at Pakistani Professionals Abroad (PPA) have accomplished a major milestone of having our own venue.
This achievement has opened door for bigger and better events round the clock; 365 days a year.

We’ve had to postpone the 10th. meet up twice hoping that we shall host it in our own premises. However, legalities to secure the License and other formalities are taking more than anticipated time frame. Therefore we have to host the 9th. February event in fabulous “Maward Restaurant” that is located just across the road from our in prestigious Ubora Tower.

This Meet Up will Not be a free event as we are in the process of seeking a new Sponsor. However, you will have to pay only AED 39/- per person for the event that includes sumptuous 6 course Buffet dinner and networking opportunities.

VENUE DETAIL: Maward Restaurant located in U-Bora Restaurant Business Bay
PARTICIPATING COST: AED 39/- Per Person


Rest assured, 11th Meet Up will take place in our own premises :)

Cheers.

    I am not thanking the organizers, administrators, volunteers or coordinators for such an excellent networking meetup last evening.
    Just because, we all are part of one team, driving towards one common objective. Instead, I would truly appreciate the outstanding efforts from: Adeel Anjum, Adeel Akbar, Ansab, Zeeshan, Hassan, Farooq, Mahnaz, Yasir, Amer, Shahzad Siddiqui and rest of you.

    Kudos to all of us. We have once again proven that together we can reach the heights. And remember, even sky is not the limit.

    Let us all plan for the next event and show that we just get better and better.

    United we stand, forget about division.

    Regards,

    ShaZZ

    I must appreciate the efforts made by everyone, who were invloved I must appreciate the efforts made by everyone, who were involved in organizing the meet up. Despite few serious issues, PPA once again proved that we can overcome whatever the hurdles are with a better approach. Introducing a shuttle service was a great addition with regards to venue. Special thanks to all participants, who have spared themselves for the meet up to make this event successful.

    May Allah Bless us with continuous success and help us in achieving our goals. Ameen

      Debate should definitely going on...and is already. The question to be addressed here is if this is an Open forum of professional exchange, then the 'small stuff' may also have to be accommodated since it is a part of everyday work life. Meanwhile google groups will not work out here since we dont interact with eachother personally...nor will have the reach to a larger and varied audience. I dont understand why such 'small' requests for help are being made a 'big' thing of. Should we not focus on the areas of expanding the scope of this forum, including modifying limiting thoughts and behaviours?

      1 · January 12, 2013

    • Shaj

      I hav'nt got chance to participate in any event of Pakistani professionals, but in any case, I am looking forward to give strength to this channel. Also, professionalism as mention Mr. Adeel, its clear and want to continue it, that they are welcoming every one...instead of size of their profession. All Pakistani's working abroad, are just for work/ profession, so they all are professional, so we should have to open it an easy access to discuss their ideas and expectation, either they need job or support, instead of stages and categories. Also to continue Mr. Abdul Ghafoor's sentence its good to share suggestion and Ideas instead of Criticism for Criticism. Because criticism for criticism is the only problem we have, either we accept or not...so instead of posting criticism phrases on panel wall, its better to shall post some motivated line with our feelings and have to appreciate, at least some one took good initiative, which was not in ones mind before.

My suggestions would be to place importance on
