The Wellness Edition

Dream big. Work hard.

Thrive is a premier event series and vibrant community that helps thousands of high-performing entrepreneurs, business owners and executives build incredible careers and bring ideas to life.

Thrive's series of live speaker events showcase the personal stories and lessons learned of leaders, founders and emerging talent in the UAE, with a focus on giving women in particular a stage and a voice. Why? Because, we believe that we see ourselves in the stories of others and that shared experience creates connection, fuels inspiration, transfers knowledge and has the ability to change lives.

Our purpose in all this: to empower others to strive for better when it comes to our work; to encourage ambition, innovation and meaningful dialogue; and to nurture a community of curious thinkers and do-ers in the Middle East.

"One Of A Kind"

We are not a traditional networking event or business conference. We are a community. Our brand is kind, human, educational and inspirational.

Our speakers are founders and leaders of Dubai's most admired companies; they design its best-loved products; they are trailblazers, innovators and individuals with inspirational stories, something important to say and a desire to give back.
