RL100 Dubai Day Summit

Talks, Networking, Dinner & Drinks
May 4th, 2023
The Westin Dubai Marina, Dubai
10 am – Onwards 
30 Resourcing Leaders


On May the 4th, we will bring 30 resourcing leaders together at The Westin Dubai Marina, for our first ever Dubai RL100 day summit to break their routine, share and learn from each other in a relaxed, professional environment. Attendees will be joined by other like-minded talent acquisition professionals of a similar strategic position so you can be certain that conversations will be sure to challenge you and inspire you.

Throughout the day, we will be incorporating a mix of thought-leadership speakers with our unique, subject led, roundtable discussions. As well as TA focussed topics, you’ll get to hear from a handful of carefully curated partners about their insights into the latest TA technology trends and HR service providers, including case studies and state of the industry reports. These sessions will be broken up with networking opportunities, allowing you to share your challenges and capitalise on the knowledge and experience of your talent acquisition peers.

To close the day, we will also be hosting a networking drinks reception and dinner, allowing for a more relaxed and open discussion between leaders. This less formal networking opportunity gives you a chance to continue the conversations had during the day and build upon the relationships that makes the RL100 so valuable.

Building a MENA RL100 Community.

Don’t miss out on the chance to be a part of the international community that’s driving change and shaping the future of resourcing and talent acquisition. Enquire today to learn more about how you can join the European network of in-house resourcing leaders and take your career to new heights.

We are aiming to have this event be the catalyst for building a resourcing leadership community in the middle east. The existing RL100 is the leading community of senior in-house resourcing leaders in Europe.

“The RL100 are a small community of industry professionals who have been identified as a group of TA Heads who lead the way, challenge the industry to improve, share their experience and opinions on stage, and freely mentor those who want to make a difference in the world of People Management”

Director and Global Head of Resourcing / Talent Acquisition @ Baringa

“As I enter my 6th year as part of this network I’m reflecting on the great connections I have made, the vast knowledge I’ve had access to, the experiences this has allowed me and the contributions we have made as a group to our industry. Put simply, I wouldn’t be the “Resourcing Leader” I am today without this group”

Will Dempsey

An awesome group of open minded and supportive Talent Acquisition leaders committed to making positive change. Personally, I really value the sharing of experience and knowledge and a healthy dose of respectful debate and challenge to think differently about shared problems.
