Donald Trump to visit Dubai
25-May-2005





Donald Trump spoke via video cast from New York at the Entrepreneurs in Dubai conference, in the International Entrepreneurship Forum and Exhibition 2005, held at the Dubai International Convention Centre. "Go against the tide, go with your gut, your instinct and Dubai is a good example for this," he said in this address to Dubai’s entrepreneurs.

In an aggressive tone he insisted to his audience to "get even" with those who harmed them. "It's important for self-esteem it's what I believe in and many disagree with me on this. When someone does anything bad to you, go after them and hit them harder than they hit you. At least then they will not take you on again. I get a great pleasure in going after people who have hurt me," Trump said.





Trump wore a dark suit with a pink tie with his hair neatly done, enthralled and entertained his listeners liberally intersperse his talk with anecdotes about his own life.

In his speech he exhorted the listeners by telling them that if they don't love what they do, they will never be successful. Successful entrepreneurs love their work passionately, and that never ever give up. Under no circumstances should one quit. Quitters are losers. Think of yourself as a warrior, he added.

Trump emphasized on the point of always staying focused, for him the beauty of going through tough times is that you will appreciate the good times better. “When times were bad for me, I did not have time to be negative. I was not focused when, in October 1989, the markets collapsed. It was a pretty ugly time for me. I had always made money, but for the first time I did not” he told to his listeners.

"Education and going to a great school is also very important. It's an asset for life. When I went to Wharton, it taught me that I could do more than compete with other smart people. It gives you self-confidence, in addition to knowledge and learning. In my TV show 'The Apprentice', we had two groups book-smart and street-smart. In the end, the book-smarts beat the street-smarts".

In a lighter vein, Trump said: "If you think you will be a person of means, always have a pre-nuptial agreement. It's a terrible thing and ugly, but in the United States, it has to be done. This includes women, too."

Hopefully this will attract some more attention out here in the US and bring some more well needed attention to Dubai from the Western world! YES! Finally!

I was actually in the process of making TV advertisements with video from dubai to attract attention, like one of those Visit Dubai Television Ads -- I got the idea from the Visit Florida aka Travel to Orlando tv advertisements.
