Injaz-Kuwait holds its 4th ‘BLC’ Seminar

The seminar focuses on ‘A Future Career in Kuwait’s Financial Service Sector’

Injaz-Kuwait successfully held its 4th ‘Business Leaders Campaign’ (BLC) Program of the academic year at the Kuwait University, College of Business Administration, on 4 February, 2015. The seminar was represented by Dr. Jassim Al-Mudhaf; Dean of College of Business Administration at KU, and the director of the Office of Student Training and Alumni (OSTA), Dr. Fahed Al-Mudhaf.

The BLC program is a platform for business leaders to connect with university students and share their success stories. Each BLC is centred around an industry, whereby Injaz Kuwait invites leaders of this particular industry to engage with the students in a two hour discussion.

The topic of focus for this session was ‘A future career in Kuwait’s financial service sector’, where prominent figures from the business sector spoke to over 200 university students from the College of BA, who were invited to attend this session. Speakers for this round were Mr. Abdulaziz Al-Loughani, Vice Chairman and Executive Director of the Kuwait National Fund for SME’s development, and Mr. Faisal Sarkhou, CEO of KAMCO. The seminar was moderated by Mr. Khalid Al Zanki, Founder and CEO of Al Zanki Enterprises.

Commenting on the seminar, Rana Al-Nibari, CEO of Injaz-Kuwait said, “The start of a new year always brings an exciting new wave of energy and motivation and hopes for more success than that witnessed the year before. With the start of our new BLC round of seminars, I’m very happy say we got off to great start and we hope we continue to see an increasing number of students who are interested in this concept and value the benefit of our program.”

The BLC program was designed with the aim to inspire students to pursue a professional career post-graduation by exposing them to success stories, experiences and an overview of the challenges and opportunities of each industry.

The session was concluded with an open discussion via Twitter hashtags engaging both speakers and students, and was followed by an exhibition where the companies that the speakers represented displayed their services and products in separate booths, allowing students the chance to apply for a job or internship opportunity with the companies.

Injaz- Kuwait reached over 31,000 students since 2005, through more than 1,700 volunteers at over 60 schools and universities. Injaz-Kuwait will continue to empower youth through different means and channels, fulfilling its pledge to this ambitious segment of society.
