He played as a goalkeeper. said that the first Leaders in Abu Dhabi event follows on from the successful Leaders in Dubai conferences that have taken place over the last four years. "Unlike Leaders in Dubai which attracts more political leaders, Leaders in Abu Dhabi is a business forum focusing on back to basics pure leadership," says Kelly. "This is about developing future leaders in the region and inspiring people to be the best that they can be." Leaders in Abu Dhabi's objective is to enable senior executives from Abu Dhabi and the Middle East to hone their strategic management skills giving them the ability to lead, mentor and inspire their executive teams. "Thus far there hasn't been any concrete support or advice on pure leadership skills for the top business leaders in the region," Kelly says. "To address this we're bringing in four of the top international leadership experts to present and offer their expertise to our current and future leaders." According to Business Week, 41-year-old Marcus Buckingham is the worlds most in-demand management guru. Kelly said that Buckingham aims to transform good leaders into great leaders by expressing his belief that companies who focus on cultivating employees' strengths rather then improving weaknesses, stand to increase efficiency and maximise personal growth. Using chess as a metaphor, Russian chess grandmaster and former world champion Garry Kasparov will talk of strategic leadership and the "right moves" in business. "Kasparov refers to three important principles of chess that translate directly to business," Kelly says. "His presentations are very compelling and, with his background, he is able to refine strategy and leadership down to a science." General Wesley Clark will draw on his military career to talk of organisational leadership from a military point of view. "Clark will use his expertise to relate world events to current business strategies," Kelly said. "His experience covers strategic leadership, technology, training and development and he is well aware of the challenges facing today's corporate world." Yo! founder, entrepreneur, and motivational speaker Simon Woodroffe, OBE, has an impressive list of supporters and is hailed by many for giving "the most inspirational and exciting presentation I have ever attended". "Leaders in Abu Dhabi isn't a conference, it's an experience and Simon Woodroffe is the star attraction," Kelly said.
