AUS Career Advancement Executive Lecture Series
Lecture by Abdul Latif Al Sayegh, CEO, Al Sayegh Media
In collaboration with the AUS academic units, the Office of Development and Alumni Affairs is pleased to host Mr. Abdul Latif Al Sayegh, CEO, Al Sayegh Media, who will give a lecture to the AUS community entitled "Media is Evolving: New Opportunities in the Horizon."
Abdul Latif Al Sayegh is one of the Arab world's most distinguished media pioneers. After completing his media and communications degree at the University of Tampa, Florida, he joined the Government of Dubai and established one of the UAE's largest media corporations - and the most diverse in the region.
He was expressly selected by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to build and manage an enormous portfolio of media assets for the Government of Dubai. This included three daily newspapers, eight radio stations, the region's largest printing press, the region's biggest distribution company, an outdoor advertising company, the UAE's most active event management company, and three major television stations (including MTV and Nickelodeon), among many other ground-breaking projects.
Seeking a greater challenge, in early 2010 he entered the even more exhilarating world of digital and social media. He created his own organization (Al Sayegh Media), which serves the entire region with unique world-class services like website development, mobile application development, social media management, SEM services, event management, videography and photography, branding and marketing, media planning/buying, as well as media consultancy.
In 2007, Abdul Latif Al Sayegh was recognized as 'CEO of the Year' by the CEO World Forum. In 2008, he was awarded the accolade of being one of the 'Top 25 Most Influential Personalities in the Arab World', by The Times newspaper.
Students, alumni, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend the lecture.
