I would like to know as much about him as I can. I know I'm probably not going get anything about his private life. But I need enough info I can write a good paper about him for my professor. My friend from Jordan said he owns his own stable and horses?? and he spends time in England??

Thanks. Has he done any recent duties that I could research or find?? Sorry I'm not doing good explaining myself, I'm learning as I go about UAE. Sheikh Majid looks to be a shy, sweet person. I'm interested to learn more about him.

I already know all of this, It was the first information I learned and could find. I have got on youtube and watched has many videos as I could find about his work. I find you never see any replies on Zajel Zu, Dubai Fitness or Championships channels.

I need enough information about him to write a detailed six page report. I know his date of birth, who his mother is, the schools he went too, his suppose interests and I know he is the Chairman of the Dubai Culture and Art Authority. What I guess I'm looking for is what does he do as the Chairman?? What duties or what's he over basically? I just need a little more information to go with what I have already about Sheikh Majid.

The role of a Chairperson is to do work between meetings, external representation of the organisation and work with staff. Chairing a large organisation or an office requires diplomatic and leadership skills of a high level. The Chairperson is responsible for making sure that each meeting is planned effectively, conducted according to the constitution and that all matters are dealt with in an orderly, efficient manner. The Chairperson must ‘lead the team'. This also involves regularily reviewing the committee's performance and identifying and managing the process for renewal of the committee/board through recruitment of new members.

Main duties of the chairperson:

1. To ensure the management committee functions properly
2. To monitor progress towards the timely and effective achievement and implementation of the objectives, policies and strategies set by the board and of other decisions taken by or on behalf of the board
3. To ensure the organisation is managed effectively as a whole
4. To ensure that members of the board understand the views of major key stakeholders
5. To provide support and supervision to the Chief Executive Officer
6. To promote the highest standards of governance
7. To represent the organisation as its figurehead

A Chairman are characterized by promoting the highest standards of integrity, openness and probity. He/she should to ensure that there is a balance of power and authority and no individual has unfettered powers of decision and control.

A bunch of pdf documents which was sent to your PM provides you an overview of the responsibilities of a chairperson. Good luck and success for your written essay.

Thanks for all the help :) My paper is done and submitted to my professor, Hopefully he likes it. I've enjoyed learning about Sheikh Majid and his family. I hope to learn more about the UAE and him.

I know I'm kind of late in this discussion, But while I was researching his brother Sheikh Majid. I came across something about Sheikh Hamdan and one of his brother suppose to be addicted to drugs and doing other things. His family was trying to get him clean. Maybe his healthy now is why his so skinny?? You can't believe half what you read on the web so it could have been just gossip.

Whether Hamdan has been addicted to drugs or not It is a private matter only . As every human being, he has the right to a minimum of privacy.
You were right to be wary about that information !
one can't stop the spreading of rumours but one can choose to believe them or not.
Sheikh Hamdan is a high-level athlete and competed in many international equestrian championships. It seems therefore difficult , in view of the numerous drug testing , to combine the take of drugs and a strict healthy lifestyle.
And honestly, there are so many rumours about the al maktoum family that a lifetime wouldn't be sufficient to accomplish them all ...
many rumours that have been raised are totally bogus.
None of them are based of fact , they are solely designed to harm and spread confusion and are based on unfounded speculation.
Unless it comes from official source ( especially rumours about marriages) , one can not totally trust what they read on internet.

I agree with you that he deserves to have privacy like anyone else, and I know not to believe half of what I read on the web. I have seen many of the rumors and you need only to type there name in for it to pop up that they are married or something. It's difficult getting the smallest basic information about the Al Maktoum family, I thinks it's clear that people will only know what the Al Maktoum family wants you to know or what's officially released to the press. :)

He is still to young to bear many responsibilities in public...but he is in training, see #340 here in this thread. He is Chairman of Dubai Events Management and Organisation, Chairman of the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation and Chairman of the UAE National Olympic Committee.

Which link? Not all of the al Maktoum brothers are Chairman. Some are Chairman of organisations or authorities:

Shaikh Hamdan:
Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Dubai
Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council
Chancellor of the Hamdan bin Mohammed e-University
Shaikh Maktoum:
Deputy Ruler of Dubai
First Deputy Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council
Shaikh Ahmed:
Chairman of Dubai Events Management and Organisation
Chairman of the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation
Chairman of the UAE National Olympic Committee
Shaikh Majid:
Chairman of the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority

Currently Shaikh Mansoor, Shaikh Saeed, Shaikh Rashid, Shaikh Marwan and Shaikh Zayed () are not Chairman.

But:
Shaikh Mansoor is Vice President of Al Shabab Sport Club in Dubai

More the content of the obligations is crucial than the amount of tasks that one has to fulfill. Life is made up not of great duties only...

True, I didn't mean for my comment to sound like I was criticizing him. It's just Sheikh Majid seems to be a very intelligence guy and a hard worker, I could see him doing more like his brothers. I know his new to been a Chairman maybe when his comfortable he'll decide to take on more committees or maybe not.

He use his intelligence and ambitiousness to work hard and do his best to fulfill one duty which is an important part for UAE´s culture, heritage and art. Also there are some obligations like initiatives and humanitarian work which run under his guidance. Further commitments may invisible for public as well. Surely you will see more in the future. Everything has its time ....
