DQG hosts behavioural change seminar
Dubai, January 13, 2009
Dubai Quality Group (DQG) organised a seminar on Tuesday for its members with the aim to enable business organisations in the UAE and the Middle East to overcome the current global financial crisis and realise growth opportunities in this critical period of the economy.
Managing director of Huthwaite International Tony Hughes gave the keynote address at the Grand Hyatt Dubai.
Huthwaite International is a globally recognised expert in utilising behavioural change to improve business performance of companies worldwide.
Organised with the theme "When the going gets tough, the best keep growing," the seminar focussed on the associated behavioural changes needed in the management and the staff of an organisation to enhance business growth during a time of crisis.
Hughes provided participants with key insights on the current economic downturn and discussed the tools and knowledge required to protect their businesses from being negatively affected.
"We are entering a very critical period as speculations abound on the future of the economy. The most important thing to do for all business organisations is to be fully aware of the various pitfalls as well as the growth opportunities that are available,” Dr said DQG chairman Wafi Dawood.
Hughes' behavioural change concept has been developed through extensive research and is based on a successful model of business excellence proven over time by companies in different industries.
As the premier driving force in a countrywide initiative that aims to improve the UAE’s business environment through enhanced quality standards, DQG has been doubling its efforts to spread quality and excellence awareness in both public and private sectors and provide business organisations with essential tools and information to deal with the ongoing economic challenges. – TradeArabia News Service
