Dubai Lynx | Under the Spotlight

Dubai Lynx, 14 March, 8am to 9:30am

Join us for a truly inspiring Under the Spotlight breakfast on Tuesday 14 March from 8-9.30am, taking place at the Madinat Area, Madinat Jumeirah, as part of the Dubai Lynx

At our Under the Spotlight session, Sophie Devonshire, CEO, The Marketing Society will sit down with Kiran Haslam, Chief Marketing Officer for the Diriyah Gate Development Authority and The Diriyah Company. 

With a career truly spanning the globe, Kiran has played a key role in reinventing two of the world’s most powerful luxury brands in both the luxury yachting and luxury automotive spheres. He has established and branded progressive media platforms in the Middle East; authored two children’s story books; toured the world as an acclaimed musician and composer - and has been recognized as an influential and powerful public speaker with a creatively disruptive and strategic mind. The Perth-born (Australia, not Scotland!) nomad has lived, studied and worked across South and Central Asia, the Middle East, Central Europe, and the United Kingdom, with his wife, two kids, and 17-year-old street cat.

Currently based in Riyadh as the Chief Marketing Officer for the Diriyah Gate Development Authority and The Diriyah Company, Kiran is now establishing “Diriyah. The City Of Earth” within the Kingdom and re-establishing its position, globally, not just as the birthplace of the Kingdom, but also as a centre for preservation of heritage and perpetuator of culture. This pedestrian and urban city, anchored on the UNESCO World Heritage site of At-Turaif, will play a significant role to shape global society to redefine Saudi Arabia as one of the great gathering places of our time with its unique quality of life proposition.

Under the Spotlight

The concept of our Under the Spotlight format is to bring together influential leaders for an insightful conversation where they bring their true selves to the conversation, are provocative and share insights that marketing leaders can learn from and be inspired to do something differently. We are interested in the untold stories, challenges that have been faced and overcome, brave decisions that have been taken and understanding how we as leaders can make a positive impact at work and on society as a whole. This is an informal, relaxed conversation between the participants and the interviewer, there is no script and no PowerPoint presentations
