About Sarah-J Leadership Series

The UAE was, 40 years ago, a fisherman’s settlement and has since rapidly grown its GDP. This growth has brought political, societal and leadership demands which are being explored now more closely than ever.

Nowadays its industry relies more on tourism and small to medium businesses.

Developing the next generation of leaders is seen as a strategic challenge of national importance in the United Arab Emirates of late (Sage, 2017.) However, the situation is both complex and uncertain.

The Women In Leadership award will be presented by leading coach and speaker Sarah Jones, whose business Sarah-J Coaching (Sarah-j.com) founded the initiative to celebrate underrepresented leaders across the globe. 

Nominate an exceptional leader in your organisation today!

The awards will be hosted by renowned coach and career expert Sarah Jones, the founder of Sarah-J Coaching.

Sarah Jones is a renowned leadership and reinvention coach and she has worked with corporations, individuals and charities globally to transform their performance. She has a successful background in PR and communications having sometimes been the only woman in a global boardroom at companies such as DHL and in the healthcare sector.

She is accredited by The Coaching Academy and has numerous qualifications such as Mindfulness, Image Coaching, NLP and Neuroscience.

Her work has been featured in the Metro, BBC, Daily Mail and the Sun newspapers and now she is bringing her transformative approach and proven tools to the UAE to work with leaders and emerging talent to bring out the best the region can offer.

We are very grateful to British Business Group UAE, Meydan Hotel and Adam Bradford Associates for their support of this initiative.
