First and foremost, our hearts and thoughts are with all those affected by COVID-19, as well as their families, friends and loved ones. Like you, we have been moved by its vast and growing impact across the world.
With the news dominated by Coronavirus, we wanted to get in touch and let you know that, the Emirates Group and the UAE are vigilantly implementing enhanced protocols to ensure the safety & security of our customers, suppliers, partners and workforce. We wanted to take this opportunity to share some of these positive insights with you for the future ahead.
Our Team in Dubai
Over the last month, our Team has been working closely with all of our clients who are thankfully mainly postponing events for later in 2020, or early 2021. Our strong relationships with our suppliers is paramount at times like this, and they have been incredibly flexible wherever possible to work with us to try and maintain as much business as possible and show flexibility wherever possible.
All of our team members are now safely working from home as Dubai starts its full lock down over the coming weeks. Daily catch ups on Microsoft Teams is a highlight, and the team is creative in different ways to ensure we maintain high spirits and a strong sense of humour during this unique and very challenging time.
We are maximising this time to work on creative new products for you and would love to share these ideas through our latest working tool, virtual calls. Along with many other projects which will further strengthen our services for you, we now have the time to start, which would not have been possible to do until summer.
The team are also taking the opportunity to do a range of online courses that are available through our Emirates Linked In Learning platform, such as showcasing tips on time management whilst working from home.
Our Overseas Representation Offices
We have an incredibly strong network of Overseas Offices in over 20 countries who are being very proactive in working around not being able to perform sales calls and attend events in their respective markets. From virtual sales calls to destination training our team is there to assist you for anything you may require.
