Last Thursday I was privileged to be asked to be a guest speaker at Qatar’s first participation in ‘World Leadership Day’ Here is what one of the local papers (The Gulf Times) reported:
QF’s role in honing skills hailed on Leadership Day Doha: Qatar celebrated yesterday the World Leadership Day as an annual,
international event to inspire, connect and transform leadership thinking and development across generations, gender and cultures.
On the occasion, Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF)’s Doha Debates held an event attended by HE the Minister of Culture, Arts and Heritage Dr Hamad Abdul Aziz al-Kuwari and a number of other dignitaries.
The event, held at the Education City, was aimed at marking the day and upgrading the level of open discussion and debate among students and young people in Qatar and elsewhere in the region.
Chief Executive Officer of Qatar Debates Dr Hayat Maarafih, in her speech, noted that Qatar Foundation is an appropriate place for building high-skilled leadership not only on the local level but also on the international level.
Qatar was the first country to celebrate the WLD in the Middle East
