Sustainability Goals and BREXIT. Where to go from here?

Stephen King

Middlesex University Dubai


Between 2015 and this summer, I conducted workshops across the UAE and Europe related to the UN Global Goals. The most recent of these concluded in London in August. It focused on the impact of BREXIT on the SDGs. Although 'academic research' was not the objective of these workshops, the number of these events, the variety of participants as well as the geographic scope provide some interesting insights into personalities working on or around these key issues. Join us on Wednesday and help workshop how we might take this anecdotal evidence to a higher level.


Stephen is currently lecturing with the School of Media & Performing Arts where he teaches second year digital journalism and first and second year advertising and PR students. Prior to joining Middlesex he launched and operated a successful 'short-form' video practice out of twofour54 in Abu Dhabi and continues to offer ad-hoc consultancy projects. Earlier he was the group senior manager for corporate social responsibility for Etisalat supporting communication teams  for the UAE telco in India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Egypt, Tanzania, Sudan, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and the UAE. Before this he was the head of ASDA'A Burson-Marsteller's Etisalat team, PR director of Weber Shandwick's Abu Dhabi office, and the lead on regional communications for Nokia and Cisco amongst others at MS&L Worldwide which is part of the Leo Burnett family of companies.
