Aiming High in Dubai

blueVisions and the Institute of Management have relocated their Dubai office to the new commercial district of the city in Business Bay.

Located close to Downtown Dubai and the iconic Burj Khalifa, the Dubai office is in a new building on the Business Bay development which is set to become a new business city within the city, as part of the vision of the Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Al Maktoum.

Joining the existing UAE team of Mohanned, Katy and Darwin in Abu Dhabi, the new team members based in Dubai are Vivian King, David Turner, Eric Pike, Judy Kabbani and Khalil El Jor. Each brings their own industry experience from the sectors of training, customer service, commerce, human resources, project management and sales, in order to cover all bases in the blueVisions and the Institute of Management portfolio of services.

The UAE and Dubai in particular are now fast recovering from the financial meltdown of recent years and the team is keen and ready to win business for the blueVisions family in the Emirate and throughout the whole of the UAE.

Delivering Diploma of Management to ECSSR

“Interest in education is a scientific, social and cultural principle that has elevated the status of this country and its people.” This observation was made by His Excellency Dr. Jamal Sanad Al-Suwaidi Director General of the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) during a press conference held ahead of the ECSSR’s 4th Annual Education Conference entitled ‘UAE: Innovation and Knowledge Production’.

In line with this belief, ECSSR has contracted blueVisions to develop a management diploma for ECSSR’s middle managers to be delivered over 24 weeks. This programme will focus on all aspects of management to ensure that ECSSR managers are familiar with all management principles that guarantee the proper implementation of worldwide best practices.

One of the aims of the programme is to achieve ECSSR’s commitment to excellence by developing an innovation workplace capable of inspiring people and unleashing their maximum potential.

This diploma will be delivered to ECSSR by blueVisions for the third year in a row following the great success achieved in the previous two cohorts.
