Current Business Challenges in the UAE

According to the Emirates NBD Dubai Economy Tracker Index (DET), while companies in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) face significant short term challenges, their long term growth potential is strong. Some of the challenges include:

  • charting a course in the face of change and uncertainty
  • managing fast-paced, rapidly growing organizations
  • managing diverse, multi-cultural teams
  • promoting cross-functional teamwork

 

How we can Help

Since the year 2000, our president has been travelling to Dubai for leisure and to work with clients. She has had an opportunity to observe firsthand the dramatic transformation that has been taking place. With a track record of over 20 years, Executive Oasis International, a Toronto team building and management consulting firm, has helped rapidly changing organizations from 18 countries:

  • Design & execute innovative strategies to stay ahead of the competition.
  • Break down silos and improve cross-functional communication.
  • Manage growth, change and uncertainty.
  • Manage diversity.

 


 

The retreat went well. Anne provided useful techniques and was enthusiastic and informative. The Leadership Team enjoyed themselves and learned so much about the value by each participant from our Leadership Team.

Bob Boaldin, Founder/CEO, EPICPCS, Elkhart, Kansas

We had the pleasure of having Ms. Thornley-Brown assist us in developing an Arctic Simulation experience for 35 members of our team. Anne facilitated the sessions and empowered us to find unique and effective solutions within a collaborative environment.

David Peterson, Executive Director, Indian and Northern Affairs Canada

I admire the style in which the session was conducted and the manner certainly catalyzed active participation and discussions. The real eye opener was that all participants were required to apply in a real life situation; within a specific time frame; all relevant business principles.

Ooi Joo Hong, Deputy General Manager (Marketing), Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd (Malaysia)

We had a great time and took away a number of good learnings. I have no hesitation in recommending Executive Oasis International to any interested companies.

Akhtar Zahid, General Manager, Blue Nile Dairy Company Ltd., The Dal Group of Companies (Sudan)

The survival case gave us a chance to provide our own ideas and defend them in a team setting. The architecture case allowed us to collaborate with others to get the job done. The puzzle game was challenging but also brought out good team dynamics.
