King's Academy, December 7, 2006 – King’s Academy Founding Headmaster Dr. Eric Widmer and Chairman of the Board Dr. Safwan Masri took part in the fourth annual Arab Strategy Forum (ASF) in Dubai from December 4 to 6. The two were among 600 of the leaders in business, government and civil society invited from the region and across the world.
The ASF, whose theme this year was “Creating Opportunity from Change,” proved an ideal forum to introduce King’s Academy as a site of such change and opportunity in the Middle East.
“The Arab Strategy Forum gave me an opportunity to meet many leaders in business, government, and other professions,” Dr. Widmer said. “Of course most of them were also parents, so that the news of King’s Academy that I was able to bring them was of more than incidental interest.”
