About this event

PRO's or Public Relation Officers are certified professionals responsible for establishing a channel of communication between businesses and the government.  They are an essential requirement for conducting business in the Middle East with their importance often overlooked.
PRO's specialize in keeping a firm grip on a company's legal, administrative, human resource and financial aspects.  Mostly, these aspects are distributed into different tasks such as legal documentation, license renewal, implementation of government reforms and visa services for employees, dependants and domestic workers.  As the number of companies increase across the region and new ventures unfold, PRO's emerge to offer legal solutions in diverse government matters, assisting companies through cycles of procedural hassle in various sectors.
Join us to hear more about the importance of this role and how it continues to develop into the digital age to assist your business.
