Communications issues in a cross cultural environment

*** Communications issues in a cross cultural environment:

On behalf of Ned Lundquist, ABC, vice chair of the IABC Accreditation Council, I am pleased to invite you to join UAE-based members of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) for a discussion on “Communications issues in a cross cultural environment”. The UAE is probably one of the most diverse business environments, and given the growing importance and influence of the GCC in global businesses, this is surely a timely moment for us to identify common issues that confront our daily business lives, and explore solutions that make a difference.

Date: Sunday, 19 April 2009

Time: 3:45pm – 5:30 pm

Venue: We will confirm the exact location once we have an indication of numbers. This is most likely to be in the vicinity of Emirates Palace as traffic and parking will be more manageable. F&B will be at your own expense.

Ned Lundquist, ABC, is an award-winning communicator who is visiting Abu Dhabi that week. He will facilitate our discussion. We will examine communication issues from a global and regional context. Ned will help us identify issues, and explore potential solutions that tap on the services, expertise and resources IABC and its members around the world can offer.

IABC ( provides a professional network of over 15,500 business communication professionals in over 80 countries. We have an exciting opportunity to shape the communications profession in the UAE, and we will be pleased if you can join us for the discussion. You do not need to be an IABC member to join in this dialogue. If you are able to do so, please confirm your participation on this email, or call me at mobile 05 0 875 4977, by Wednesday, 15 April 2009.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards.
