(MENAFN Press) INJAZ-Kuwait successfully held a 'Business Leaders Campaign' (BLC) Program, holding its first speakers session at Kuwait University - College of Business Administration, on 24 March, 2014. The BLC program is a 5-part speaker series at universities organized by INJAZ Kuwait, whereby leaders from across different industries are invited to speak on different themes and engage with the students.



The focus of this session was 'Banking and Finance: Industry Leaders in Kuwait' where prominent figures from the banking industry spoke to over 100 university students from the College of Business Administration. Speakers at this session were Salma Hajjaj, GM of HR, Gulf Bank; Saleh Al Ateeqi, CEO of Boubyan Capital; and Bader Al-Sumait, CEO Global Investment.



Commenting on the launch of this campaign, Rana Al-Nibari, CEO of INJAZ-Kuwait said, "The BLC program has been developed with the aim of inspiring 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. Through this program and the valuable contributions the speakers make, students are being exposed to the reality of different industries and career options currently available in the market. The sessions also open doors of opportunity for internships within the different participating companies."



Mrs. Salma Al-Hajjaj, General Manager Human Resources at Gulf Bank and speaker at the Business Leaders program first session, said: "I am very proud, both personally and as a representative of Glf Bank, to be with you on this important day. Mentoring programs such as these are just one of the initiatives that Gulf Bank has undertaken with INJAZ, and we do so because we strongly feel it is our responsibility, as an organization that is part of the local community, to encourage the development and education of our youth to help build a successful future for Kuwait.




Saleh Al Ateeqi, CEO of Boubyan Capital and speaker at the BLC event said, "It's important that students are motivated by their successes and failures, both, equally. Success creates the desire to excel further, and failure should also create the desire to work harder to reach the desired end result. It's a vicious cycle that they need to learn to enjoy and benefit from at the same time. The INJAZ-Kuwait BLC program addresses just that, as it presents an excellent opportunity for students to learn more about the challenges and hardships of the business world and how one overcomes them, and hence the success stories that follow".



The session was concluded with an open discussion engaging both speakers and students, and was followed by an exhibition where sponsors of the event 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 27,000 students since 2005, through more than 1200 volunteers at over 70 schools and universities. INJAZ-Kuwait will continue to empower youth through different means and channels, fulfilling its pledge to this ambitious segment of society.
