Having lived in Dubai now for over eight years and having worked at a senior level within a large UK Global organization I believe I have a significant amount of corporate as well as regional experience to offer in support of the British Business Groups (BBG) ambitions. I'm very committed to supporting UK plc as well as UK citizens living in Dubai in both their day-to-day and wider business objectives and see my involvement as Deputy Chair within BBG as a means of demonstrating this.
