What's new in 2020?

Thursday 30th January 2020

Last week I wrote about some personal commitments for 2020 and the power of identity shifts. In line with change and new commitments this week I wanted to let you know about some shifts and new initiatives for the business this year. I love what I do and when you enjoy something it is easy to get complacent. I am always conscious of response when someone said they have 15 years experience and the other person says, no you don’t, you just have one year of experience repeated 15 times. How easy is it for us to fall into the trap of doing the same things year on year because we like doing them? Or even doing things year on year that we don’t particularly enjoy doing but we don’t change because change is hard and the status quo is the easier option.

For me, 2020 is less about sweeping changes and more about a slight re-focus and adjustment to where our time and energy will be spent. There are many new exciting initiatives and programmes that will be launching this year. With so many great things happening in the region and so many businesses undergoing their own transformations we see huge potential to make a real difference. We have some great new partnerships that are kicking off the new year with gusto for us and some exciting initiatives just around the corner.


Click below for more information on the following initiatives. 

Women in Leadership – we are so looking forward to launching this 5-day women-only leadership programme. Led by women for women, bring it on.

Saudi Arabia an exciting new market for us 2020, I see lots of Emirates flights in my future…
