Lisa Plaxco, Head of CFA Program visited the UAE on June 17th and 18th 2019 where she delivered two presentations, one in Abu Dhabi at the Four Seasons Hotel and another in Dubai at Armani Hotel.
The session in Abu Dhabi gathered 25 attendees and 50 in Dubai including charterholders, candidates and potential candidates.
Both sessions started with an overview on the program and the latest updates, followed by a fireside chat where Lisa was interviewed by William Tohme (Regional Head MENA) on popular CFA program related questions and followed by a Q&A session.
The Q&A sessions were very interactive where great interest in the program and Continuous Professional Development was reflected through the attendees’ questions. A hot topic was careers and the CFA charter’s importance in this respect.
