Desert + Client Training = First Week of Work


So, I knew my first week of work would primarily be spent training comms professionals in the ways of media and PR planning. But, I didn’t realize part of it would be a desert safari…I experienced the exact opposite of the tranquility Brian “suffered” while lounging around a 5-star hotel and walking the halls of the poshest malls in the world. This “fun” evening activity involved an adrenaline-junky driver hurling us around in a 4×4 in the desert about 40 minutes outside of Dubai, allowing a photo stop and a moment to settle our stomach contents. After the thrill ride, we were led to a “traditional” bedouin camp experience with dinner, Egyptian dance, shisha tent, henna and totally authentic skimpy belly dancer wear. But, importantly, it allowed for┬áthe first camel sighting! Behold…

P.S. I’d recommend this experience, but one of my client attendees did get sick as we were heading to the bedouin “camp”.
