Glad Rags

It's that time again, yes it's Geekfest the bi-monthly meet up of the "geeks", am I a geek?  I don't consider myself as one, infact the majority of the people who attend aren't either just a group of like minded people who have a bit of a passion for Twitter  who enjoy meeting new folk and putting names to faces.

This month it's ONE FOR THE GIRLS, by that the unorganised organiser of said event, Lord @alexandermcnabb has given in and the let the female fraternity take over with a series of female speakers and business showcases from women in business.  With talks from @amazingsusan, @devinadivecha @naylaAlkhaja and @aidaAlb it's going to make for an interesting evening. 

There are also 9 women in business who will be showcasing their business in the main area of The Shelter, Dubai, the list is as follows:
