New to Dubai? A very useful event just for you.

If you are new to Dubai then you’ll already know that life here is quite different to being in your home country so make a note in your diary to come along to a helpful presentation to get you up to speed on lots of things that you need to know. Saturday 13th August, 9am to 12pm, at FC Dubai in Al Quoz (near Ace Hardware).

This event is run by Citispi  and features several guest speakers on a variety of topics including all manner of financial issues from me, property by Espace Real Estate and schooling from British Orchard Nursery. The venue has a supervised children’s play area and there will refreshments and snacks. Citispi will also provide information about the local social scene.

Dubai imageThe topics I will be covering will include banking, Sharia law, protecting your family, how to plan your finances, smart shopping and general etiquette in the UAE. Serious topics but presented in a light-hearted way.

As well as finding out lots of useful information, this is also a great chance to meet other expats, network, ask questions from experts and generally get to know your new city better.

While the adults take advantage of open Q&A sessions, presentations and open forums, children will enjoy supervised playtime inside one of FC Dubai’s indoor football pitches, complete with bouncy castles and arts and craft stations.

There is a small charge to cover costs which is well worth it. More details on the flyer below.
