The impact of global mega trends and adoption of a tool-based approach for companies to design actionable growth strategies will be the focus for an upcoming event in Dubai organised by Frost & Sullivan, a growth partnership company.
Frost & Sullivan’s Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL), a premier leadership event, will bring together visionaries, innovators, and leaders on February 19 at Madinat Jumeirah.
The congress will offer participants an opportunity to collaborate and brainstorm with Frost & Sullivan Growth consultants and industry peers on how to effectively capitalise growth opportunities through industry specific groups.

It will first help companies in understanding the impact of the global mega trends on Middle East business, culture and society, identify opportunities and thereafter adopt a tool-based approach to design actionable growth strategies.
