Build Dubai September meeting

How to keep teams engaged | The Gargash Mosque by Dabbagh Architects

September is here, and so are our Build Dubai networking events. This month’s guest presentation by Andy Fieldhouse, a teamwork expert, author and coach, was about creating committed, engaged and happy teams in difficult post-Covid times. The pandemic has disrupted how most of us work, and for many teams, this has been challenging.

Andy offered insights and advice on the importance of consciously and intentionally addressing the impact of COVID in your team, how to boost morale and engagement and what can be done to prepare for disruption in the future.

Build Dubai member’s presentation: The Mosque of the Late Mohamed Abdulkhaliq Gargash

Our Build Dubai member, Sumaya Dabbagh, presented Dabbagh Architects’ latest project – The Mosque of the Late Mohamed Abdulkhaliq Gargash. Located in Al Quoz in Dubai, the Mosque of Light is a contemporary place of worship and one of the first mosques in the UAE to be designed by a female architect. This project has already gained traction from both local, regional and international design media.
