You’re Invited

The second LEQA (‘Get Together’ in Arabic) event, open to all, is scheduled for Monday 16 January 2012 at 6pm at the HCT—Fujairah Women’s College.

Two Guests

There are two guests giving input to the first LEQA meeting for 2012:

The Hon. Greg Fischer (pictured), Mayor of Louisville, Kentucky will be connecting with those at LEQA by way of Skype.

Fischer is an entrepreneur, businessman and philanthropist who was elected Louisville’s 50th mayor on 2 November 2010.

The Mayor is the founder of SerVend International, a worldwide corporation and co-inventor of the SerVend ice and beverage dispenser.

He is the founder of Iceberg Ventures, a private investment firm, and co-founder of bCatalyst, the first business accelerator in Louisville.

Mayor Fischer is a former partner and former CEO of Dant Clayton Corporation, which designs, manufactures and constructs sports stadiums around the USA.

Mr. Murshed Mohamed Amed (pictured with Professor Muhammad Yunnus) graduated from the Dubai Men’s College in Mechatronics Engineering and Engineering Management. After successfully completing his Masters Degree in Project Management from the British University in 2008 he went on to write a book focusing on Emirati success stories.

The publication covered six inspiring cases of Emiratis and how they dealt with the problems they faced in their own business ventures.

Murshed is the CEO of Yebab.com, the famous Online Wedding Directory of the UAE.

While no doubt successful as a businessman and politician, the claim of inventing the ice dispenser machine is heavily disputed, and sounds like an overstatement or embellishment.

Apparently, his Father was the buyer, of the company holding the original patents. Servend was later renamed Servend International, and Fischer was able to get his name inserted on a re-application of one of several patents purchased with the family business as co-inventor.
