Qatar’s Future Leaders Exclusive Two Day Annual Conference to be Held April 26-27, 2015

Launch, a series of associated learning events for Qatari Nationals that focuses on developing the country’s future leaders who are commencing their professional career, will host its inaugural two day conference on April 26-27, 2015 at the Hilton Hotel Doha, Qatar.

Launch facilitates the development of Qatari Nationals through a two day conference featuring keynote speakers, interactive learning experience, goal setting, and reflecting and learning sessions, all focused on developing the future leaders of Qatar.

The two day Launch conference has been specifically tailored to suit the participant’s profile and needs, with Day One focusing on ‘Creating a professional dream you are passionate about’, while Day Two will focus on ‘What will I do to reach my professional dream’.

During Launch participants will explore elements of professional business practice and accept ownership for their professional development during the conference, other highlights including: workbooks filled with information and exercises to be used throughout the conference, to ensure that learning is maximised, access to key online resources, the opportunity to attend networking events and exchange knowledge with peers and meet industry leaders, as well as invitations to attend Launch learning workshops throughout the year.

In addition, there will be a range of high quality speakers from both government entities and private companies including Ooredoo, Qatar Development and Consultancy Centre, QTIPS, AMLAK and more, over the two days, to help participants gain insight into self-development tools and techniques, obtain an understanding of learning and thinking styles, and to also provide participants with real life examples and motivation as they reach for their professional dream.

Launch is the brainchild Elizabeth Fleming, Managing Director of Qatar Development and Consultancy Centre, who has over 20 years of international Human Resources and business solutions experience, and Isra Al Jefairi, Founder of Growth. Both founders were passionate about establishing an effective platform for professional growth of Qatari Nationals to network, explore and benefit from the expertise of industry leaders.

Ms. Fleming, Founder of Launch, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting and organising the first Launch conference in late April as we foster a community of the future leaders of Qatari professional through collaborative and engaging networking events. Launch cultivates responsibility, ambition and ownership for personal career development amongst young Qatar Nationals, and it is a privilege to be supporting them on their journey.”

“Also, Launch provides forums that connect, challenge and educate Qatar’s future leaders along with a range of blended learning events that stimulate learning, development and personal insight,” Ms. Fleming added.

There will also be a learning facilitator on hand throughout Launch to ensure all participants are energised and that participants are personally connected to what they have heard. Ms. Fleming stated: “We do not wish to provide another dull conference with a conveyor belt of speakers, as after a while they all blend together and participants are not able to fully grasp what they have heard. We wanted to offer something entirely different –we are offering a new style of learning to Qatar. We are providing a rich learning experience that will not be forgotten by our participants.”

Moreover, Launch believes that ongoing development and networking is required to support the professional growth of all participants. Apart from an annual two day conference, Launch provides a highly interactive series of learning events post the conference including: workshops, coaching and mentoring services, interactive web and social media advice, as well as networking opportunities through Launch Knowledge, which provides forums for discussion on issues and opportunities related to career growth along with an introduction to industry leaders and experts.
