The 2nd edition of SCL Arabia held on 23 & 24 October at The Address Dubai Marina, UAE was an impressive gathering of 175+ delegates and 45+ speakers. The highlight though was not only the statistics but the composition of the attendees. The room was full of serial entrepreneurs who had stood upto multiple challenges to create success stories, dedicated innovators whose resilience and desire to stay in the game had helped create some industry benchmarks, evangelists who had done what no one thought could have been done in the sector in the region and last but not the least a very impressive group of women leaders who had carved out enviable positions and success stories in a sector which till some time ago was perceived predominantly a male bastion.
