YAL Bahrain to launch leadership forum
Manama, February 1, 2011
Young Arab Leaders (YAL) Bahrain, an independent pan-Arab organisation, will launch a forum aiming to nurture the leadership potential among Bahrain’s youth and provide them with skills and mentoring to forge ahead as leaders.
The Arab Leadership Forum (ALF) 2011, also known as Yalla!, in partnership with Kuwait Finance House (KFH), Manara Developments, Hill & Knowlton, and Memac Ogilvy & Mather, will be held at the Gulf Hotel from March 6 to 8.
Two hundred handpicked young Bahrainis will be selected to attend to learn, develop, share, connect and network with like-minded people from all over the world to discover how to become a mover and a shaker in their community, their region and the world.
Mazin Al Shehabi, vice chairman of YAL Bahrain, said the Yalla! event will help motivate, guide, and nurture leadership skills amongst Arab youth to help them unleash their potential, and will build on experience gained at the previous events held in 2009 and 2010.
“This year’s forum features some truly inspirational speakers who will challenge participants to embark on a path of personal and professional self-discovery, propelling them towards enhancing their leadership skills in both their careers and personal approach,” Al Shehabi said.
“I would like to thank all our partners for supporting us and contributing towards making the forum as successful as possible.”
ALF 2011 will feature some of the region’s top leaders sharing their success stories in addition to international leadership trainers including Gaia Grant, best-selling author and leadership consultant; Manoj Sharma, corporate strategist; and international speaker Robert Panté. – TradeArabia News Service
