Q1 2020

2 MEA MARKETS / Q1 2020 Editor’s Note , Welcome to the Q1 issue of MEA Markets Magazine. As always, we are dedicated to providing our readers with all of the latest news and features from across the Middle East and Africa. It’s an unprecedented time, to put it lightly, but the world continues on. True, at a more cautious pace as we try and make the typical everyday more …. normal. The world of business, especially, is at a bizarre crossroads, as we continue on where we can, and look to protect what we can’t. It’s also a time of intense change. Industries that remained traditional are now being forced to adapt to more modern sensibilities and methods of working. Time will tell whether these changes stick, or whether – once this is all over – we collectively slide back into the old. It’s going to be interesting, whatever happens. But, for now, MEA Markets will spotlight the work of businesses who are going above and beyond. Businesses that are setting the pace, adapting, and driving change. Today, innovation and creativity are needed, with business leaders up and down the region finding new ways to thrive in this otherwise uncertain world we now find ourselves in. Take, for instance, our front cover booker: Eloise R Photography. We spoke with owner Eloise Robbertze in detail about her work as an artist, and her inspirations. Because perhaps, right now, we all could appreciate something precious, rare and beautiful. I hope you all stay safe and have a wonderful quarter ahead.
