International Institute for Learning, Inc. (IIL), a provider of professional training in project, program, and portfolio management, business analysis, Microsoft Office Project and Project Server, PRINCE2, and Lean Six Sigma, announced the opening of a new operating company in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
With demand for training growing across the Middle East, IIL says this expansion further solidifies its global presence and enhances its ability to deliver learning solutions worldwide.
"Innovation is inherent in our approach to learning and our clients in the Middle East are leaders in innovation—with a deep understanding of the critical importance of investment in training and development," says E. LaVerne Johnson, founder, president, and CEO of IIL. "We've been serving the training needs of clients within this region for many years, and having a direct presence in Dubai gives us an opportunity to not only expand our client base, but also provide enhanced client services to our existing customers."
The Middle East operation is led by Daniel Marsden, whom IIL says has management experience and interest in the region that will further enhance its ability to meet the needs of Middle Eastern clients. Marsden has managed projects and provided consultancy to clients in Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates, including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Ras al-Khaimah.
IIL says Marsden has already begun working with key clients in the region. "The scale of projects within this region is massive, and our clients understand investment in quality training and consulting can reap tremendous rewards," says Marsden. "It is my goal to build long-lasting relationships in this region, delivering the expertise that will enhance the effectiveness and productivity of their organizations."
