Hassan Jameel, Deputy President and Vice Chairman of Abdul Latif Jameel, was among the speakers at the recent two-day Family Business Council – Gulf (FBCG) Annual Summit in Dubai, UAE.

Mr Jameel joined sustainability experts from around the world in a panel session discussing effective ways of giving in the context of the family business.  Representatives from Community Jameel also attended the summit, where they shared the organization’s approach to developing community projects centered on job creation.

H.E. Abdulaziz Al Ghurair, Chairman of FBCG, said: “We believe each family business has its own secrets to success, but we also believe families can inspire each other on ways to regenerate their own formula to success.  By tailoring the summit agenda around real-world case studies and success stories, we aimed to provide families with practical insights they can learn from and incorporate to better address the challenges of growth, business model evolution, and generational transition.”

Now in its fourth year, the summit brought together leading GCC family businesses, experts, and academics under the title ‘Secrets to Family Business Continuity: Committed to Evolve Over Generations’.  FBCG is the regional associated for Family Business Network International (FNBI).
