Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Former Stormers and South African Captain and Rugby World Cup winner Bob Skinstad is our special guest for the next RBN event in Dubai hosted by the RBN's sponsors Marriott. The event will take place at the Velocity Bar, JW Marriott, Sheikh Zayed Road. It is an invite only event, so not only will you get to hear from one of the legends of world rugby but there will be some excellent networking opportunities as our guests will be handpicked. Former Scotland captain Rory Lawson will be the MC for the evening.
Bob is not only a successful business leader with technology company Sharp in Africa he is also the founder of the Rugby Business Network in South Africa. In this event hosted by Liam Mooney founder of the RBN in UAE and MD of Blue Pencil Legal Recruitment both Bob and Liam will discuss how RBN members from different countries can collaborate better to generate business opportunities between like-minded people.
Bob will review the 6 Nations and Tri Nations and give his views on how the teams are shaping up for the next World Cup. He will also discuss his transition from rugby to business, his current life in business and his how he sees the RBN progressing in Africa. He will also discuss the state of the nation and business in South Africa with his colleague Mark McChlery.
This event is free but we will be running a raffle to support the Bill McLaren foundation. Bill is the late grandfather of our MC Rory Lawson. There will be a cash bar and the JW Marriott will be sorting out some drinks/food packages that people can purchase if they want on an arrival.
It promises to a great evening and a fantastic way to start the Xmas celebrations!
Rugby Business Network events are for business people with a passion for rugby and at the events attendees meet and help new people with similar values in life and in business. RBN members ask each other 'How can I help you?' as opposed to 'What can you do for me?'
The Rugby Business Network is sponsored by proud rugby sponsors HSBC and Marriott who have provided the venue for the evening.
