Students enjoy it as a social activity, while we see it as an important opportunity to reach the maximum number of our special students. As part of our sponsorship this year, we will host a private workshop for merit scholars in the US, where we present to them different potential career paths and opportunities, with a few tips that will guide them in starting successful careers. Alghanim Industries will also sponsor a panel discussion entitled ‘She’s a Leader’ on women in leadership positions.

I am also excited to announce that I will be on the judging panel of the ‘Business Startup’ competition, taking place during the conference.
In 2014, Alghanim Industries launched “Alghanim Industries Future Leaders Program” (AFLP) that extends over 12 months, and is designed to provide recent, high-potential Kuwaiti graduates with a comprehensive introduction to the different businesses and support functions in Alghanim Industries, including world-class training and development activities.
