IDG Opens UAE Office to Further Serve Leadership Development in the GCC Region

Located in the heart of Dubai, new location will give more organisations the opportunity to take advantage of unique business improvement philosophies and partnering agreement with the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

March 2019: Leadership and management performance consultancy the Inspirational Development Group (IDG) today announced the opening of its latest office. Located at One JLT in downtown Dubai, it is the company’s second within the GCC, following the establishment of its first in Oman in 2013. The Dubai office and team will manage IDG’s operations in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain. In addition, following the success of IDG’s recent Middle East Youth Development Forum, the office will provide a platform to expand operations into Iraq.

IDG creates measurable and sustainable change in an organisation through the development of its people. Since 2000, IDG has been helping organisations achieve a quantitative improvement to their performance by aligning the behaviours of its people to the strategies of the business. Whilst this approach has resulted in multiple award-winning development programmes for large multi-national commercial organisations, the methodologies are equally applicable in any area where leadership skills are required. For example, IDG has delivered several programmes around the region for young people that concentrate on developing the leaders of tomorrow.

IDG’s Value Proposition is founded upon its exceptional programmes, its world-class Client base and, uniquely, its partnering agreement with the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. This relationship gives IDG privileged access to the Academy’s facilities and combine its own contemporary business-focused philosophies with Sandhurst’s applicable military methodologies that have been built upon over 200 years of creating world-class leaders. Numerous Sandhurst graduates have gone on to become political leaders for GCC countries, and IDG offers these and other perspectives on Leadership, Followership and Partnership to organisations within the region.

Peter Turpie, Director IDG Middle East commented:

“By establishing the office in the UAE, we are looking to build upon our Value Proposition by demonstrating our commitment to serve our clients in the region as best as we can, to develop mutually beneficial partnerships, and to build local capacity. Moving forward, we expect to establish further offices in the region to underline our commitment.”
