THOUGHTS SO FAR...

ANDY ROBERTS J&J

“The Marketing Society has only been in existence in Dubai for a short period, however in that time I’ve met counterparts from many similar organisations, and some senior individuals from organisations outside of FMCG that I’m now actively working with to strengthen my own business plans for 2017 and beyond. I’ve also had the pleasure of attending a couple of inspirational events that have made me think differently about how we approach a couple of areas of our business, notably in the Digital world. These opportunities wouldn’t have presented themselves without the networking opportunities provided by The Marketing Society, and I am looking forward to the forthcoming events.”

SENIOR MARKETING DIRECTOR, MENA AND PAKISTAN “The Marketing Society in Dubai have since the soft launch back in September filled a gap where senior marketing and communications professionals can network, be inspired and most importantly talk about the common challenges we face around Talent, insight and analytics driven Marketing and the challenges and benefits around Digital Marketing. We already had several inspirational breakfast meetings with international executives providing their perspective of the major trends and their predictions for the future. The Marketing Society have done an outstanding job in the first few months here in Dubai and I am looking forward to future events with high quality content and peer to peer networking”.
