Beginning 2016, founders of The Iraq Club will officially launch the Future Energy Forum (FEF), an exclusive business-focused community connecting a senior network of leaders specifically engaged in the development of emerging energy markets
FEF is spearheaded by William Wakeham and Leanne Case, both of whom are leading experts on critical business issues within emerging energy economies.
Co-founder of The Iraq Club, Iraq Business News and Libya Business News, Wakeham said that drawing on Dubai’s position as the business hub for the Middle East, FEF will showcase some of the world’s leading thinkers on critical business issues from geopolitics to security.
Offering members access to industry events, as well as a private online forum, FEF enables members to share experiences and best practices in overcoming barriers to doing business in emerging energy economies, in turn helping them to develop solutions to operational challenges.
“We are thrilled to be providing this much needed forum to our community. A members-only network dedicated to providing core information on best business practice in high-risk markets. Accessing the right information and connections can pose a significant barrier to doing business within these markets, thus it is in our best interest to handpick suitable individuals to create a collective community so that knowledge is shared and new approaches are developed,” he added.
Expected to attract a variety of industry personnel, Christos Charalambous, oil and gas specialist for Taylor Wessing commented, “We are delighted to be a founding partner of the FEF. Having regularly attended The Iraq Club, we have experienced the value of this network first-hand and we are happy to support its expansion into other markets.”
