Following on from the highly successful inaugural Middle East Youth Development Forum on the Fourth Industrial Revolution in October, we are holding our second event on Thursday 28th February at The Law Society hall in Chancery Lane, London.

This event is aimed at anyone who has a business interest in the Middle East, and will include senior guests attending from Government and Industry. It will be particularly applicable to companies with a Middle East presence or business interests in the region.

The focused topic area for this event is ‘Rebuilding for Return: Investing in Iraq’s New Age’, and will be conducted in the form of a panel session involving the following excellent panellists:

  • Dr Renad Mansour –Research Fellow at Chatham House   Dr Mansour’s research explores the situation of Iraq in transition and the dilemmas posed by state-building. Dr Mansour is also a research fellow at the Cambridge Security Initiative based at Cambridge University, and since 2011 he has been a senior research fellow at the Iraq Institute for Strategic Studies in Beirut.
  • Mr Zaid Elyaseri –Head of BP, Iraq   Mr Elyaseri is Country Manager for BP Iraq and responsible for managing BP’s business integration in Iraq where BP is the lead contractor for developing the Rumaila oil field, Iraq’s largest field contributing over 40% of Iraq’s production. Zaid has an MBA in Oil & Gas Management from Aberdeen Business School.
  • Ms Howar Talabany – An Oil & Gas professional who is CEO of Hamilton Bridges UK   Ms Talabany worked in various commercial roles for Shell International throughout the Middle East region for 10 years, including as Business Advisor to Shell’s Head of Global Commercial and New Business Development, where she assisted with strategic management decisions including the Shell-BG integration and its corresponding $30 billion divestment programme. In 2018, Howar left Shell and became founder and CEO of Hamilton Bridges, a private consulting and investment company focused on establishing select business partnerships wanting to enter the Iraqi market, with an initial focus on training and development projects. She holds a BA in Political Science from SOAS and an MSc in Political Economy from the London School of Economics.

Our Chair for the evening will be Stephen Bennett, founder and Chairman of IDG, a senior businessman who has spent much of the last 20 years working with young people across the Middle East Region.

It promises to be an informative and interesting evening from which we hope you will gain useful insights into regional youth issues as well as practical actions you may need to implement in your own organisations.
