IDG in UAE, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia
Encouraged by our successes elsewhere in the region, our presence in Kuwait is relatively new but growing
Initially, business development has been handled by combining our recourse in London and U.A.E with our excellent agency, Mashoura International – one of the largest trading companies in Kuwait.
Recently we ran our first programme for the Kuwait Institute of Banking Studies. As borne out by the outsourcing feedback from participants, course directors from fields and from the course directors at the Institute, it was a great success.
The 4-day programme was designed for aspiring managers who were earmarked for future leadership positions. The leadership development programme was designed for people who aspire to greater heights of personal and team performance – to their benefit and that of the organisation. The programme addresses the key characteristics that high potential employees have in common; aspiration, ability and engagement. It aims to help and engage delegates to develop their own Personal Leadership Philosophy through greater knowledge, capabilities and self-reflection. It also aims to get the delegates to hone the knowledge, skills and attitudes to effectively respond and combat the VUCA pressures of the world-wide banking sector and equip them to manage in a high-performing culture. After the 4-day programme, delegates reported that they felt more equipped with the knowledge needed to return bank to their banks.
We are currently expanding our youth work across the region and have developed a tailored programme for the Gulf Financial Centre – part of the Gulf University for Science and Technology – due to start in 2019. This will be a modular programme spread over the course of 4 months taking place both in Kuwait and at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
