We had an amazing 45 minute meet up with Jeff Price who was surprisingly down to earth in spite of his accomplishments. Jeff took the time to get to know more about our Suraya Foundation campaign and agreed not only to help us connect with the right people in the radio industry but also help Mohd Shahnawaz, road ambassador of Suraya Foundation to better put out the word of road safety when he goes for an interview in Dubai Nightline on Sept 6th. Bin Sulayem and Wael Al Sayegh were two influential Emiratis he mentioned during the meeting.

All in all the meeting was very refreshing and we were happy to find creative people like Jeff Price in our community who are willing to give their time for betterment of the society.

Jeff Price is very well-connected with media community in UAE and and one of his many highlights is that he has helped to start the first commercial English radio station in UAE. He runs Jeff Price Media FZE where as a Programme Management Consultant he is provides Professional Broadcast Services. He writes a blog on http://wwwjeffprice.blogspot.com/
Got a chance to meet up with Marketing and Communications Manager, Peyman Parham today at RTA headquarters in Al Garhoud.  As I was entering the office there was loud bang and I turned back to look at the crash scene a etisalat can hit Emirates Post van, good topic to start the coversation.

The meeting with Mr Parham was very quick and the objective was to get RTA member to join our Board of Advisors. Mr Parham was in a hurry for a meeting and introduced me to Murali Krishna who is was previously working in Saatchi & Saatchi and now deals with marketing od road safety campaigns in Dubai.

Mr Murali was very impressed with our campaign plan and said "It is very innovative campaign I have come across" and mentioned they have some campaigns coming up very soon.

We look forward to some members of RTA to join our Board of Advisors
