Swiss Ladies Dubai was initiated in 2004 to organise meetings for all Swiss ladies resident in Dubai. It is our deeply held desire to create a forum and platform to share experiences and mutual interests in an informal, constructive and positive way.


Martina Boessow  – President

Martina Boessow

I was born in Zurich and did my studies in Lausanne, thus speak Swiss German and French. I came to the UAE in 2005 with my husband. We started off in Abu Dhabi and then moved in 2007 to Dubai when I joined the Swiss Ladies Group.  Since 2008 our current team has continued the work started by founder, Georgette Hartmann  and I was appointed President in 2009.  Shortly after this in 2009 my twins were born here in Dubai.
