M. Shafik Gabr, Chairman & Managing Director of ARTOC Group for Investment and Development, delivered a series of keynote addresses at Yale University, USA. The series, focusing on the current business environment in the Middle East, kicked-off with a speech on "The Impact of the Global Economic Crisis in the Middle East", organized by the School of Management International Club. Mr. Gabr also spoke on this topic as part of the Yale World Fellows Program, the university's signature leadership training program, launched in 2001 on the occasion of its centenary. The Council on Middle East Studies also hosted Mr. Gabr for a talk on "Entrepreneurship in the Middle East".

Yale University, the third-oldest institute of higher education in the United States, is renowned globally for its notable alumni, which include five US Presidents and several foreign heads of states. Mr. Gabr was invited as a keynote speaker due to his keen interest and wealth of experience in participating in global issues, which includes founding and chairing Egypt's International Economic Forum and serving on the International Business Council of the World Economic Forum. He is also a member of the Board of the Egyptian Center for Economic Studies, and serves on the Business Advisory Board of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and of Zurich Financial Services.
