Conference Presentations

It is with great joy that we inform you of the CIM’s recent acceptance to present our research at two prestigious, international conferences taking place in Chicago and Portugal. As we endeavour to build a credible academic institution, the recognition for our work amongst fellow academics is an important step forwards.

Our Head of Research and author of these works, Dr Obadah Ghannam, will be speaking on behalf of the CIM at both conferences. We request your prayers for the success of both of these presentations and the organisation overall.
