The former prime minister admired the UAE’s founding principles, which have attracted individuals from all over the world seeking new prospects.

During his speech, Cameron shared his many insights on effective decision-making processes, particularly in the context of meetings.

He expressed the view that larger meetings tend to be less productive, and stressed on the importance of engaging a core team of approximately six individuals who can engage in constructive debates and discussions.

By allowing thorough examination of different arguments, issues, policies, or decisions, smaller meetings foster an environment for productive disagreements to take place, Cameron explained.

“Different arguments, issues, policies, or decisions can be thoroughly examined. Disagreements can take place. Too many people, and meetings tend to become more performative and lose their purpose.”

Shifting focus to the realm of politics and public service, Cameron also voiced his belief in the worthiness and nobility of engaging in such roles.

He also spoke about the the impartial and professional civil service in countries like Britain, stating that it works for the greater good.
