Our Speakers

Previous ABCC events have attracted an impressive
array of influential and distinguished speakers 

Over the years, the Chamber’s international business events have succeeded in attracting as their keynote speakers many representatives of companies who are leaders in their business fields, members of the Royal Household, Arab and British heads of state and heads of government, ministers, diplomats, chief executives from major corporations, directors of think tanks, policy makers, financiers, advisors, educationalists, exporters and service providers. The Arab British Economic Summit will build on a record of success by bringing together a unique pool of talent and expertise that will enable delegates to gain insights into the latest developments in the Arab World and engage in discussions with key decision makers and opinion formers.
