The UAE's approach to boost entrepreneurs and encouraging them to unlock potential that the nation offers is evident with US-headquartered Corporate Connections (CC) - global network of business owners and C-Level executives - launching its first chapter in Dubai today.
This falls in line with Dubai's strategies to connect with the world and accelerate business growth with the Expo 2020 Dubai. The chapter in Dubai is Corporate Connections' first in the region.
The organisation connects successful business executives, who are active in high-performance teams that focus on advanced referral, relationship marketing and networking strategies and has currently signed up 15 businesses so far with goal of 50 by end of the current year.
The members of first Corporate Connections chapter in the UAE represent a wide range of businesses - from hardware supplies to chemical supplies and automotive sales to manufacturing. The organisation has set a target of Dh200 million business to be raised from the UAE chapter by end of 2020.
Robert Gervais, global president, Corporate Connections, said, "We are pleased to launch here in the UAE, as the part of expanding operations across the Middle East. Our aim is to help the world of business and individuals continue to flourish by providing members with a well-structured referral business development system based on relationships. The UAE is an ideal nation with visionary rulers and progressive minded business leaders with entrepreneurial zeal. At times, these leaders feel lonely at the top and are missing the company and counsel of like-minded business owners. The UAE is a business hub and, hence, the value of connections is higher."
The target profile for Corporate Connections is a business owner or a C-Level executive, who is in business for over five years and a top line of over $5 million. Corporate Connections provides global business leaders the ideal setting for generating exceptional and measurable results through executive networking opportunities. The international community of networking has active chapters in USA, Canada, Switzerland, Japan, India, Mexico and growing.
Established in 2004, the premier platform for accelerating executive-level connections is facilitating large scale businesses grow by building referrals generating relationships for hundreds of members around the world.
Chirantan Joshi, national director - UAE, Corporate Connections, said, "Networking helps to accelerate business growth through business opportunities and recommendations. Networking is a relationship building process and we know that people do business with people they like and trust. Active networking increases your circle of connections and thus your opportunities for growth. I would say that networking can help you accelerate business growth." -
