In early June, IADC’s Southern Arabian Peninsula Chapter (SAPC) hosted an HR Workgroup “Breakfast & Learn” event, led by Richard Roberts and Ashely Anderson. The main focus was a panel discussion about UAE employment laws, Emiratization, immigration, and residency visa reforms. This was the first event by the SAPC to be attended mostly by HR representatives from Member companies.
The workgroup event was held at the Crowne Plaza Dubai Marina and was facilitated by Sulaf Saleh-Al Zu’bi (SSA Consulting).
Guest panelists included:
- Sonny Ridgewell, Managing Director (BENEPLE)
- Thenji Moyo, Legal Director & Head of Employment (Gately UK LLP)
- Joanna Matthews-Taylor, Partner (Baker Mackenzie)
- Marie O’Neill, Owner & Managing Director (EER)
