FinMark backs YAL event
Manama, June 29, 2010
FinMark Communications (FinMark), a specialist corporate communications consultancy, took part in a workshop conducted by the Young Arab Leaders (YAL) in Bahrain.
YAL’s six-day workshop “Steps to Success Program”, which will run up to July 1, focuses on helping the next generation of Arab business leaders and entrepreneurs make the transition from university into the job market.
FinMark’s Bahrain-based managing director Zahraa Taher spoke to the group of more than 100 recent university graduates on strategies and tactics for successfully identifying relevant openings and career paths, communications techniques for interviews and networking.
She stressed the importance and application of ethics in the work place and spoke about her own path to becoming an entrepreneur and business owner in the field of communications.
“FinMark Communications is delighted to support YAL and, in particular, to take part in this important program which is targeted at helping young Arab businessmen and women forge ahead with their chosen career paths,” said Taher.
“We, ourselves, are committed to the hiring and training of local talent and working to ensure knowledge transfer and best practices in communications to young local PR practitioners.”
“We commend YAL for all of its efforts in this area and believe its programmes are an important part of developing a strong and vibrant private sector as well as the next generation of business leaders who will help drive further development in the regional economies,” she added. – TradeArabia News Service
