THE AWARDS RECOG­NISE AND HON­OUR MEN AND WOMEN FROM ACROSS THE MID­DLE EAST WHO HAVE HAD OUT­STAND­ING SUC­CESSES IN THEIR FIELDS

THIS YEAR’S THEME WAS OUT­STAND­ING ACHIEVE­MENT, HEAD­LINED BY A TRUE VI­SION­ARY LEADER

A wel­come let­ter from our CEO It is my great plea­sure to wel­come you to our an­nual Ara­bian Busi­ness Achieve­ment Awards. I must con­fess that when we set out to plan tonight’s event it was a daunt­ing task. Last year we marked the 30th an­niver­sary of ITP Me­dia Group by hon­our­ing the great­est achiev­ers of the past three decades. It was a won­der­ful and in­spir­ing oc­ca­sion that left us won­der­ing: how do we scale those heights again? But when our team sat down to dis­cuss po­ten­tial win­ners this time around, we were re­minded of a pow­er­ful truth about the coun­try we are proud to call home: namely, that its suc­cess is built on the in­cred­i­ble work of so many peo­ple from all walks of life. These ef­forts are guided by this great na­tion’s lead­ers who have set the stage for ev­ery­one to play their role in this re­mark­able story. This evening we hon­our the in­di­vid­u­als who have made an im­mense con­tri­bu­tion to the growth of this re­gion. You will see a wide ar­ray of ac­com­plish­ments across many sec­tors. Once again these awards will re­flect on the true mean­ing of suc­cess: work­ing for the good of the com­mu­nity and help­ing oth­ers so that they can help them­selves. I very much hope you will agree with our choices, and look for­ward to meet­ing with as many of you in per­son as I can.
