Breaking the mould of traditional entrepreneurial training, Takatuf’s “SME Leaders Empowering Programme” sought to introduce the concept of leadership and HR tools in order to complement the areas these businesspersons have to focus on. Nabhan al Kharousi, Takatuf’s HC consultant, highlighted the influence of the programme on Oman’s emerging entrepreneurs and emphasised the way this kind of training impacts the sustainability of SMEs and positions leaders for growth.
The second part of the event focused on youth and connecting them with business leaders, with the objective of clarifying what they need to do to become highly productive professionals in the near future.
Dr Ammar al Ojaili, Associate Director of the Takatuf Scholars Programme, was one of the panellists in this discussion and debated with the audience the main challenges students face and what they need to do to overcome them. Al Ojaili cited the achievements of Omani graduates of the Takatuf Scholars Programme and how the programme focus on 21st century competencies that will support their future success in both university and the workplace.
Commenting on the event Ibrahim al Harthy, acting CEO of Takatuf, said, “This event represents a call to action for organisations operating in Oman and the duty they have to contribute to the Sultanate’s growth.
High-potential youth, students and entrepreneurs, are the future engines of growth for our country.
Takatuf focuses on the future and anticipates the developing Human Capital needs Oman will face as it grows. We are ready to answer the call alongside Oman’s leading companies and hope to partner to continue offering programmes to entrepreneurs and students alike.”
