January Event at Jones The Grocer

On January 27, 2014 the UAE Alumni Association met at Jones The Grocer, Dubai. It was again Yunib who offered to host us, this time in Dubai, and under the kind sponsorship of LSE Alumnus Sadiq Jafar from Hadef Partners. More than 40 LSE Alumni made their way to the restaurant, and enjoyed once more the wine and cheese of JTG. There was an introductory speech of Abdul Wahab Al Halabi, our Acting Chair, and few words from Arif Naqvi, CEO of Abraaj Group, and one of the best-known Alumni in the UAE, currently sponsoring the MSc in Finance and Private Equity. They both described the way forward for the Association and encouraged alumni to volunteer as much as possible.
