When you write a book on Digital Transformation, you might be lucky enough to get invited to speak abroad every now and then. At Duval Union Consulting we are very proud of our international clients and the last few months we have been to Hamburg, Utrecht, Paris, Dubai, London,…
Wait did you just say DUBAI?
Oh yeah, I just said Dubai! Even for us here at Duval Union Consulting that is a bit special…
Early November Dado was asked to give an in-house keynote presentation on Digital Transformation for one of the largest fashion retailers/distributors in Dubai and the Middle-East, the Chalhoub Group.

What is the Chalhoub Group?
The Chalhoub Group has been leading luxury across the Middle East since 1955. With retail, distribution and marketing services based in Dubai, they have become a major player in the beauty, fashion and gift sectors regionally.
Chalhoub in numbers:
- Regional coverage of 14 countries
- Over 650 retail outlets across the region
- Team of over 12,000 employees
- Over 100 nationalities
- Over 125 companies, affiliates and joint ventures
But is Dubai as crazy as everybody thinks?
Well, yes and no… Off course everything is bigger, taller, newer and more sandy.
But once we were in the boardroom, we found a down to earth group of people that were genuinely interested in Digital Transformation. It showed once again that Digital Disruption is everywhere and that emerging markets around the globe are seizing the opportunities.
