TribalScale Announces TakeOver Dubai and a Keynote Speaker


TakeOver Innovation Conference, Canada’s largest one-day innovation and technology conference, presented by TribalScale, today announces its first ever event to be held in Dubai along with an impressive line-up of speakers.

TakeOver Dubai will take place on November 14, 2018, at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. The conference connects TribalScale’s North American network with the Middle Eastern and North African innovation sector. Already, and much like the conference held in Toronto, TakeOver Dubai is attracting C-Suite and executive-level business leaders from the financial services, media, and telecommunications industries.

“There is so much growth and opportunity in the UAE. We believe that it’s time we connect our networks and push for international collaboration and innovation,” said Sheetal Jaitly, TribalScale’s CEO and Co-Founder. “TakeOver is just one of the ways we give back. Dubai and the UAE have given TribalScale so much, it’s time for us to return the favour.”

In front of a highly curated audience, TakeOver speakers will bring forward-thinking and strategic perspectives on enterprise transformation, artificial intelligence, and global startup incubation. Speakers include:

  • Keynote Speaker, H.E. Marcy Grossman: Consul General of Canada in Dubai and the Northern Emirates
  • Session Speaker, Karthik Ramakrishnan: Global Head of Industry Solutions at Element of AI
  • Panelist, Peri Ozdemir: Head of Innovation and Special Projects at Emirates NBD
  • Panelist, Anshul Srivastav: CIO and Digital Officer at Union Insurance
  • Panelist, Mark Chahwan: CEO and Co-Founder at Sarwa
  • Panelist, Karin Gabriel: Head of Programming at Dubai Future Accelerators
  • Panelist, Neelay Patel: Director of TV, Radio and Music at the BBC

TakeOver Dubai will also prominently feature TribalScale Venture Studios. Venture Studios leverages TribalScale’s operations and network across the globe to source, invest in and scale startups in conjunction with corporate partners. The Venture Studios team is partnering with MENA enterprises to bring innovation and startups from the most important venture markets in the world, including Silicon Valley, New York City, and Toronto.

The Knowledge Society (TKS), Canada’s top innovation incubator for young leaders, will also be at TakeOver Dubai hosting interactive sessions on AR/VR, quantum computing, and machine learning. TakeOver partners include Arabnet, Careem, Digital Gurus, FinTech Galaxy, the Government of Canada, Element AI, Enterprise Ireland, Support Legal, and The Knowledge Society.

TribalScale’s operations in the region are growing rapidly. The team in Dubai, currently 20, earlier this year, announced Fraser Matthews as the Middle East North and Africa (MENA) Regional Director, and TakeOver Dubai is a further reflection of the company’s growing presence in the area.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
