Representatives from Emirates, Dubai Airports, Khaleej Times, NRS International and other companies attended the event.  “The CSR Masterclass provided an excellent overview of sustainability as a topic, in a fun, informal way.  I enjoyed networking with other guests and interacting with the lecturers. I look forward to attending future events in the same vein,” shared Annie Meikle, Director, Social Shop by Aurora.
