The workshops are comprehensive qualification programs to assist businesses to adopt Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Performance Model (MRM)
Dubai, UAE: Kanoo Travel, being a proud winner of the 6th cycle of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Excellence Award shared insights on the topic “Achieving Customer-driven Innovation”, in a series of Best-Practices Seminars hosted by Dubai Chamber held in its Dubai head office on 27th February 2013.

On behalf of Kanoo Travel, Nayeem Syed (Network Manager - Business Development) discussed the topic to a group of senior representatives from various corporate industries, followed by a panel discussion represented by him and Aubrey Heldt (Regional Operations Manager).

The Best Practices Seminar is an opportunity for previous winners as business models to share their ideas, standards and experiences towards pursuance of excellence in applying for the Business Award under the framework of the Program. It also aims to highlight the importance of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Club which encourages interaction, learning and cooperation among its members while developing business competitiveness, adopting global best practices and elevating their business reputations worldwide.

Held annually under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, the MRM Business Award is the region’s most prestigious business award initiated by Dubai Chamber to support and reward the efforts of UAE-based businesses contributing to the economic development of the country.

Aubrey Heldt and Nayeem Syed, together with Prashant Nassery (Projects & Quality Manager) and Rayner Mathias (Quality Coordinator) from Kanoo Travel collectively worked as a team in this project to showcase the best practices and latest innovations.

Over the years, this seminar has always been supported by Kanoo Travel. The various topics shared by speakers have helped many companies meet international standards and have aligned them in their management techniques. This initiative has further strengthened the Kanoo Travel’s partnership with all its stakeholders throughout the region.

The seminar concluded with a token of appreciation presented by Dubai Chamber to Kanoo Travel for the valuable contribution in the success of the event.
