Last week, Becky moderated a Town Hall in Dubai where she put the results of our #Influencer2014 online voting to a group of leading opinion-makers from across the Middle East.

They had the opportunity to discuss why the Middle Eastern Refugee, Saudi King Abdullah and ISIS Leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi came out ahead of the other candidates on our list.

Afterwards the audience gathered in the Town Hall voted on who they think had the most impact on regional affairs in the past year. This is the clip of our guests discussing the reasons they think Al Baghdadi had the most influence.
