Abu Dhabi’s governmental communications have undergone a significant transformation with the establishment of the Abu Dhabi Government Media Office (ADGMO) and the launch of key programmes, including Ghadan 21 and numerous initiatives supporting business, knowledge, and communities across the emirate.
During this special Brunswick College session, we invite you to join representatives of ADGMO to learn more about major initiatives like Ghadan 21 and the Abu Dhabi government’s communications response to the impact of COVID-19. You will also hear about how government entities are now communicating and engaging across Abu Dhabi with the support of ADGMO, and how the private sector can engage with local initiatives supporting the Abu Dhabi story.
Strategic Communications – Abu Dhabi Government Media Office
Rebecca Jarvest is Head of Strategic Communications at Abu Dhabi Government Media Office (ADGMO), which launched in May 2019 to communicate the vision of the Abu Dhabi Government and the stories of our people to the UAE and beyond.
This role includes overseeing ADGMO’s communications for Ghadan 21, Abu Dhabi Inspires and Abu Dhabi Find Wonder, a global champion to highlight the emirate as one of the best places in the world to do business, invest, work, live and explore.
Prior to joining ADGMO a year ago, Rebecca was Head of PR at the Local Organising Committee for Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019. Gaining AED 254 million in media value impact for the UAE, the World Games changed perceptions of people of determination locally and globally through targeted media partnerships as diverse as ESPN, Abu Dhabi Media, and Humans of New York and campaigns such as the Rallying Cry which saw celebrities from Pep Guardiola to Gareth Southgate read a poem of encouragement to the athletes.
Rebecca holds a BA in Modern & Medieval Languages from Cambridge University and an MA in History of Art from King’s College London.
