Mike Coady – Experienced Dubai Expat


Mike was born to expat life thanks to his father’s oil and gas career – which took the family to expatriate hubs all around the world.

During his own career, Mike has lived as a Dubai expatriate for over 15 years.

In 2015, after having achieved the goals he had set out for himself, Mike embraced relocation by returning to London, UK taking on a number of Managing Director and Chairman roles for leading global financial advisory brands.

But Dubai was now in his blood. Here was a destination where effort counted, and where global expertise could be harnessed for local good. Mike took up an opportunity to return in 2017. He has since leveraged his skills and reconnected with old networks to once again immerse himself in life in the vibrant Emirate.

It was Mike’s network of connections and influences that eased him back into Dubai life. He realises the power of people, of connections, and of reaching out.
