Back2Business 2017: Oman’s Largest Business Networking Event

Back2Business is ‘The Largest Business Networking Event in Oman’ and will welcome hundreds of guests looking to network, socialize and collaborate with leading businesspersons from across the Sultanate. Following the huge success of the last three Back2Business events hosted by the Grand Hyatt Muscat, the working group are in the final stages of planning the 2017 event which will take place on Tuesday 7th March. The major sponsor of the event since its inception is the Bank of Beirut Oman.

Previous B2B’s have focused on the importance of networking, social media and leadership in the modern business world. Last year, B2B invited one of the most successful Ted Talk
Presenters, Drew Dudley, who believes ‘leadership is not a characteristic reserved for the extraordinary’ to share his thoughts.

This year’s members-only event is organized by representatives from the Oman American Business Group, the British Business Forum, the European Business Persons Group and the Australian Business Group Oman (OABG, BBF, EPBG & ABGO). “We are planning to use this year’s event to recruit more members,” stated Susan Rae, Chairman of ABGO. “All the groups meet regularly throughout the year and welcome new members. We want to encourage on-going participation”.

The 2017 Back2Business theme will be ‘Overcoming Challenge’, a title that represents the current standpoint of many businesses in The Sultanate. “Business in Oman is facing challenges due to the fall in oil price and many other issues,” stated Maggie Jeans OBE, Coordinator of the BBF.

To greater enhance this discussion, B2B will welcome His Excellency Talal-Al Rahbi, Deputy Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Planning; the organization behind the Tanfeedh initiative, to deliver a key note speech on the topic.
