On 22nd January, 2020 Sustainability Development Committee (SDC) organized blood donation camp for the 1st time at the IMT Dubai Campus in coordination with Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Dubai International Academic City (DIAC). The Blood Donation Camp started well on time at 10AM in the Lounge. SDC team helped in making all the arrangements with the DHA also, there were 2-3 members always present at the venue to help the volunteer with the process. Students, Faculty and staff all came for blood donation in good spirit. A survey from DHA regarding health condition, medication or any disease was filled by every volunteer before proceeding with the health check-up process. After thorough check-up only volunteers were allowed to donate blood.
Nearly 60 donors participated for the noble cause. A survey was also taken with the donors by DHA about their satisfaction level in which most of the donors were highly satisfied the Process and whole experience. All the donors were provided with the manual instructing the precautions to be taken for few hours after Donation. Refreshment was also provided to every donor after the donation.
A few donors were also denied from donating blood by the Doctors because they visited India within 1 month and according to doctors India is a “Malaria” endemic country and the virus of malaria stays in the body for almost a month and it can’t be traced while testing the blood samples so, some volunteers were denied from donating. But we got a decent number of donors and DHA authorities were also satisfied with the number, when asked about their experience at IMT and they were ready to conduct Blood Donation Camp again in future. Overall the event was very successful.
Special Thanks to Mr. Nirmish, IMT Staff and whole SDC team members for their coordination in making the event successful.

IMT Dubai had the pleasure of hosting Ms. Heba Sayed, Marketing Head, IBM. She spoke about how the role of CMO is evolving in tandem with today’s growing digital world.
Though the role of the CMO no longer even exists in some of the famous brands like Coco-Cola, a company known for its creative marketing campaigns, there is still light at the end of the tunnel as there are also brands like McDonald’s corporation promoting their CMO to the CEO of the company.
She also spoke about how AI and other technologies are impacting the way CMOs market to their customers; North Face using it to make personalized outfit recommendations and Nike using VR to help customers find their real shoe size.
