Dubai September 2009: More that 69 per cent of expatriates are losing sleep over the state of their personal finances, according to Gautam Ganglani, Managing Director of Dubai-based Right Selection.

He said that the challenging ride of the past year is taking its toll on the region’s population, citing a recent survey among expatriates in Bahrain and the UAE.

Ganglani said that a short-term solution is to attend the upcoming event ‘How to Get out of Rat Race’, suggesting that participants will learn the secrets of financial security and how to thrive in the turbulent economy within a day with seven world-class speakers.

“This one-day seminar brings seven global entrepreneurs with local UAE experience together under one roof. They will tackle the subject of financial insecurity head on.

“The agenda will generate a powerful, open discussion, while sharing tips and tricks on how to prosper – and all for just Dhs 100 per delegate in our show of support to the local business community,” he said.

Ganglani said that the decision to bring this programme to UAE is a direct response to the concerns and demands of the UAE community.

“Our public seminars are highly responsive to the changing international environment and address the needs of individuals, professionals and companies and ‘How to get out of the Rat Race’ is a great example of us doing just that!” said Ganglani.
Right Selection Group is a training and development consultancy based in Dubai since 1993.
