    Join the Canadian Business Council (CBC) Abu Dhabi for an informative session on Valuegraphics: Data that can eliminate the single biggest waste of time and money at any organization, in any industry, anywhere in the world.

    Organizations waste as much as 90% of their time and money trying to influence audiences using demographics, which don't tell us anything about behavior anymore. Trillions of dollars and hours are at stake. We need a new system to understand the people we want to impact.

    Valuegraphics is a new science of audience influence based on a half-million surveys in 152 languages from around the world, that tell us what people truly value. And because what we value determines what we do, with this data we can influence audiences 8X more than ever before with better products, services, brands and ideas. Valuegraphics will help any organization boost stakeholder engagement as much as eight times, remove the guesswork from decision making, reduce the risk of innovation, and help organizations thrive regardless of disruption and technological change.

    Join the Canadian Business Council (CBC) Abu Dhabi in collaboration with Snö Asthma & Allergy for an informative and interactive session on the treatment and management of allergies and asthma. Dr. Stuart Carr will start the session with a brief overview of what exactly an allergist is, what sort of conditions we see, and what to expect from a consultation, touching on unique aspects in the UAE, and what is and what isn’t a food allergy. Dr. Carr will be inviting lots of questions from the audience. 

    Speaker:

    CMO Stuart Carr, MD FRCPC FAAAAI

    Dr Stuart Carr was born and raised in Canada, and has over 20 years of experience providing allergy and asthma services for communities in Canada. His primary clinical interests are pediatric asthma and food allergy. He started a private practice in Edmonton, Canada in 1998.

    He graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Alberta 1993. He then completed training in both Pediatrics and Clinical Immunology & Allergy at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, and was granted specialty certification by the Royal College of Physician and Surgeons of Canada after successfully completing examinations in Pediatrics in 1997 and Clinical Immunology & Allergy in 1998.

    Dr. Carr has also been very active in continuing medical education, and also had the pleasure of serving as President of the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.  He has a number of published peer-reviewed articles and abstracts, and has co-authored one textbook chapter.
