1. Dave, as the Sales Director of Capital Club Dubai, you’ve had a front-row seat to witness the transformation of the business landscape in Dubai. Can you share a memorable anecdote or story that encapsulates the spirit of entrepreneurship and collaboration you’ve seen among your members?
Dave: I would say patience is a virtue. In so many cases it’s not necessarily expecting speed to be the key but instead to listen, observe, rationalize and then base decisions on all the above. Generally speaking, the culture in Dubai is that of entrepreneurial achievement and having a growth mindset. However, it’s critical to make the right calls at the right times with the right people.
2. We often hear about the professional side of Capital Club Dubai, but can you shed light on any unique or quirky member events or interactions that have occurred within the club’s exclusive walls, showcasing the more unconventional side of the business world?
Dave: We really cover a wide spectrum from very intense business discussions right across to jazz evenings and wine pairing events. I would say the masquerade ball and anniversary party are two events not to be missed! It’s great to see all of our members and their guests in a party spirit.
3. The UAE is known for its cultural diversity. Could you share how Capital Club Dubai celebrates and leverages this diversity to foster a global perspective and open doors to international business opportunities for its members?
Dave: We see diversity in many different ways in the club, both in terms of nationality as well as celebrations such as Emirati Women’s Day as an example. We often have events and gatherings to mark these occasions. The United Arab Emirates continues to diversify and this is also reflected by all the nationalities and cultures that we see in the club. As people tend to understand each other’s cultures this can often be an advantage in terms of forming a base of common understanding to do business.
4. We often hear about the role of a positive mindset in success. Can you give an example of a member who, after joining the club and adopting this mindset, experienced a noticeable change in their business fortunes or prospects?
Dave: I cannot mention names for privacy reasons but there are so many successes seen on a daily basis. Each share this positivity as it’s critical to take each day with a fresh approach. I’m a strong believer in positivity bringing further positivity. You cannot expect success to come without challenges but being positive is essential in my mind.
5. The past few years have seen a significant shift towards remote work and digital collaboration. How has Capital Club Dubai integrated these changes while maintaining its focus on in-person networking and relationship-building among its members?
Dave: We support the ability for our members to conduct their virtual meetings as well as those private face to face discussions. In recent years there has been more flexibility to have freedom to operate outside offices which has resulted in a surge in applications from entrepreneurs looking to multitask from the club. However not all matters can be done remotely. It’s very useful to be able to support both sides in that respect.
6. Networking and collaboration are central to the club’s mission. What principles or practices does Capital Club Dubai promote that might contribute to the idea that “like attracts like” among its members?
Dave: The club is very much a business focused club providing a platform for expanding your network. It’s not necessarily about following a specific ethos. I think that the concept of like attracting like and the law of attraction is more of an individual belief. With respect to Capital Club the key is that members have similar natures and backgrounds in terms of being successful within their industry or field. Being around success I feel breeds further success and development
7. The club’s ability to stay ahead of the curve in Dubai suggests it naturally attracts innovative and forward-thinking individuals. What qualities or attributes make Capital Club Dubai magnetic to such individuals?
Dave: I think Dubai and the United Arab Emirates provide its residents with a feeling that with hard work anything is possible. Having a wonderful view of the Burj Khalifa from our 5th floor terrace is a constant reminder to that effect. There is an energy within the club that you feel. It’s a combination of the privacy together with the intense business focused discussions happening continually.
8. Looking ahead, how does Capital Club Dubai plan to continue fostering an environment where members can channel their ambitions and aspirations, ultimately attracting success and growth?
Dave: Two of the main factors I feel is to continue to support diversity and inclusion together with appealing to younger aged members and their guests. I feel adapting to the changing wealth patterns is very important.
