The Executive Club opens to Filipino entrepreneurs in UAE

The Executive Club (TEC), a network for Filipino entrepreneurs in the UAE, has recently been launched by the Philippine Business Council Dubai and Northern Emirates (PBC-DNE).

“The Executive Club is a prestigious network of forward-thinking business owners and decision makers under the Philippine Business Council. It offers a business platform for members to share experiences, explore opportunities, and grow the regional business community through high-profile events,” said Edwin Duria, Chairman of PBC-DNE.

According to PBC-DNE, The Executive Club provides an “expansive business network, access to club meeting and events for business development, as well as sponsorship opportunities.”

At the latest TEC event last week, “members dived into the fast-paced world of speed networking, forging meaningful connections that will shape their professional journeys. During the event, we proudly highlighted the remarkable accomplishments of our talented members over the last three months. Their dedication and hard work have elevated the TEC community to new heights, and we couldn’t be prouder of their success,” Duria said.

Duria said more Filipinos have joined the business community in the UAE in recent years, making the PBC-DNE busier than ever to help business owners network in the community.

In July, PBC-DNE signed a deal with Skyline University for Dh1 million worth of scholarship grants for members and their family to take up undergraduate and graduate programs in business, finance, computer science and other short courses.

Earlier this month, Metaverse Age Training Institute, which has partnered with PBC-DNE, launched in the UAE to usher in a “new era of education” in the metaverse.
