ONSTAGE Q&A WITH ANDREW NEIL
One of the main features that sets the Arabian Business Forums apart from other events is the Q&A interviews with Andrew Neil. These onstage interviews enable Neil and the speaker to discuss issues fully and go beyond the scripted sound-bite. Neil has a strong track record in broadcast media: he currently anchors four editions of the Daily Politics Show on BBC2 every week and the award-winning This Week on BBC1 every Thursday. For the BBC he also anchors Straight Talk with Andrew Neil and makes documentaries. The 8th Arabian Business Forum is a unique opportunity to witness some of the region’s biggest names sharing the stage with the BBC’s best political interviewer.
The 9th Arabian Business Economic Forum will feature three much anticipated, and guaranteed to be lively, panel discussions hosted by Andrew Neil. Covering the most important questions of this time; the Arab spring, youth unemployment, and the future of digital; the panelists are selected to provide balance and expertise on each subject. Once the panelists have outlined their arguments, and defended their points, the discussion is opened up to the audience for comment and criticism.
