World-renowned business educator and coach Dr. Marshall Goldsmith will deliver a two-hour workshop on “Transform your Leadership to Transform your Business”.  

“Leadership and talent development are cornerstones of business success and nowhere is this more evident than in the rapidly evolving Middle East region,” explained Goldsmith. 

Attendees will be discussing topics related to upskilling and reskilling, adopting a comprehensive workforce management strategy, promoting Emiratisation and localisation, fostering leadership and innovation, harnessing AI for accelerated development, the event organisers said. 

“By hosting the ATD Middle East Conference and Exhibition, we are committed to supporting learning and talent development professionals through an extensive speaker line-up of thought leaders from learning, business, and international employers,” said Tony Bingham, President and CEO of the Association for Talent Development (ATD).
