The Pearl Initiative, in collaboration with Dubai Business Women Council, is honoured to invite you to attend this interactive roundtable event to discuss the value corporate governance has for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) seeking to raise capital.

Gulf Region MSMEs are innovative and growing fast, but face challenges in raising capital. If applied practically, corporate governance practices can assure stakeholders, investors, and other sources of funding that a business is serious about its growth and success.

At this event, join international and regional industry leaders and practitioners to learn why corporate governance is essential for small businesses seeking funding, and what MSMEs can do to adopt practices to suit their specific needs. Expert speakers will answer questions that tackle the most pressing issues for MSMEs today, including:

  • How can small businesses tackle difficulties in accessing funds?
  • How can small businesses attract and retain the right talent?
  • How can small businesses find the time to focus on the critical issues that really make a difference to the success of their business?

Strong Integrity practices are becoming more and more crucial for organisations looking to lead their respective industries in the current business environment. Business Integrity Principles: Driving implementation for sustainability roundtable will bring together business leaders and subject matter experts from various industries to share and discuss the benefits of implementing rigorous business integrity practices. 

With a primary focus on voluntary adoption of best practices, the discussion will seek to explore the mechanisms and systems implemented by organisations to detect, mitigate and prevent the risks associated with fulfillment of practices not aligned towards business integrity. 

The goal is to shed light on the practices that have assisted organisations to add value to their businesses by appointing sustainable and effective business integrity principles. 

In addition, Pearl Initiative will introduce the Gulf Integrity Indicator, designed to provide organisations with a framework to review their existing integrity practices in an effort to stimulate a discussion within the organisations seeking to enhance on current practices.
