Levelling the Playing Field with Brandy Scott

Twelve months ago, Dubai Eye teamed with Jumeriah Hotels and Resorts to create a forum with a difference. A place women could learn and share skills that would make a real difference to their careers and their income.

This January, we held the last event in this series of Levelling the Playing Field in a fittingly fabulous location – Scape Restaurant and Lounge at the Burj Al Arab

The topic was the fine art of pay negotiation,, starring global business leader Heather Mcgregor – aka Mrs Moneypenny. With advice from lawyers, head hunters, recruiters and HR professionals, this may have been the most valuable Levelling the Playing Field Yet.

Thanks to Jumeirah for making this series possible in such amazing venues. And stay tuned to see what we do next.

November saw the third edition of Levelling the Playing Field take place… and this time we explored the art of the side hustle. Whether it’s monetizing a hobby, freelancing, or setting up your own cottage business – we looked at how to do it legally, professionally and successfully.
