About the event

Embracing innovation for social and global good is one of the essential qualities of future leaders.  We are living in an extraordinary time of global disruptions and mindset shifts; the world is calling for more empathetic, sympathetic and responsible leaders who could create and bridge impact with legacy for generations to come.

Coinciding with the UAE’s 50th anniversary in 2021, Dubai will host the first World Expo in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, and safely welcome the world to a global event that not only excites and inspires, but also serves as a unique opportunity for humanity to come together in a spirit of optimism, hope and shared purpose.

Impact 17+1 club is pleased to welcome our keynote speaker Ms Nadimeh Mehra, Vice President, District 2020 – Transition Unit.

Nadimeh is responsible for the commercial development of the post-Expo site and supporting its transition into a mixed-use community and innovation-focused ecosystem; with the aim of supporting the creation of a sustainable legacy and long-term economic opportunities. Nadimeh’s topic covers: “Bridging Impact with Legacy.”
