Goodbye 2017 – Hello 2018!

Goodbye 2017 – Hello 2018!

The last day of 2017… It’s been a tough year for many here in Dubai and around the world. Politically and economically there has been much change, globally and here in the region. Belts have been tightening, concerns and questions have been raised over the imminent VAT laws and regulations here in the UAE and there has been a lot of uncertainty.

However, amidst all of this, there has been plenty of successes, and certainly plenty of learnings and development. We have a new UAE cabinet with more women than the White House and the youngest minister in the world, as well as our first minister for artificial intelligence – clearly demonstrating the UAE’s commitment to the future, and maintaining the pace of growth and development.

Closer to home here at MY PA, we welcomed three new PA’s to the team – Sian, Melissa and Beaulah joined us during the course of 2017, and we can’t imagine working without them now! We also gained a mini-PA, with Helen giving birth to baby Lucia! We added a number of fantastic new clients to the MY PA family, took part in some great networking opportunities and worked hard to support our clients in reaching their 2017 objectives.

As the year comes to a close, it’s incredibly important that we take the time to reflect, to take note of learnings and to celebrate successes – which we certainly intend to do this evening. With that in mind, we’d like to wish you all a fantastic evening and start to 2018. We look working with you throughout the year ahead and helping you to achieve all of those resolutions you may already be making!

Enjoy the celebrations – see you in 2018!
