October 30 saw GRSP host the 2014 International Road Safety Executive Dinner at the President Wilson Hotel in Geneva.
It was a distinguished gathering comprising thought leaders, advocates and innovators in the field of road safety. The evening was in part a celebration, acknowledging some achievements of the year. It presented an opportunity to connect, it was above all however, a chance to make time in a less frantic setting to talk, to share, to reflect and enjoy a pleasant evening with like-minded colleagues.
Guests were honoured to have on the evening as special guest and speaker, His Excellency Amr Al Dabbagh, Founding Chairman of new GRSP member, Stars Foundation, who spoke eloquently on the principles of ‘Giving, Earning and Sustaining’.
