HBKU-logo-large-qatarisbooming.com-640x480.jpgHamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU), a member of Qatar Foundation (QF), is hosting the 8th edition of Qatar LeaderShape at the Al Sultan Beach Resort in Al Khor from 4-9 January.

LeaderShape, a highly successful program which was established in the United States in 1988, is an enriching educational experience which focuses on teaching its participants how to ‘lead with integrity.’ Hosted in Doha since 2007, LeaderShape offers Qatar’s brightest future leaders the opportunity to develop the necessary tools and skills needed to successfully serve as global leaders.

During the intense six-day program, participants will learn to overcome challenges and build on their existing leadership skills in an environment set outside of the traditional classroom model. Each day will focus on a specific theme including, ’Building Community,’ ’The Value of One, Power of All,’ and ’Bringing Vision to Reality.’

Sixty students from HBKU’s partner universities have been selected to participate in this highly competitive program. HBKU’s LeaderShape Program is supported by its official sponsor, Maersk Oil Qatar which first joined as partner for the previous program held in January 2013. HBKU recently signed an additional two year partnership agreement with the leading international oil and gas company to help develop Qatar’s future leaders.

Commenting on this partnership, Sheikh Jassim Al-Thani, Head of Qatarization at Maersk Oil Qatar said, “We are delighted to be the exclusive partner for the LeaderShape program again this year, and to extend our support going forward.This partnership with HBKU is a key element of our social investment program that is focused on supporting the development of skills and capacity in young people in Qatar, and building the next generation of leaders.
