SHARJAH: Sheikh Salem Bin Abdulrahman Al Qasimi, Chairman of the Sharjah Ruler’s Office, was in attendance at the graduation ceremony of the 10th batch of Sharjah Leadership Programme (SLP) held on Monday, at the Al Jawaher Reception & Convention Centre (JRCC) in Sharjah.

The ceremony also witnessed the launch of the next edition’s theme ‘Leading with Knowledge & Imagination’. SLP is organised by Sharjah for Capability Development (SCD), a subsidiary of the Rubu’ Qarn Foundation for Creating Leaders and Innovators.

The 10th SLP was organised in partnership with the American University of Sharjah and INSEAD Business School. The programme is designed to enhance the skills of future leaders based on their area of expertise, enhance their knowledge and stimulate excellence and creativity, to shape their roles at their workplaces, and ultimately raise Sharjah’s profile as an attractive environment for innovation and leadership in all fields.

The American University of Sharjah and Bocconi School of Management, Milan, Italy, have been identified as SLP’s next edition academic partners. The key focus of the 11th edition will be the ‘concept of culture’. Through the programme’s curriculum, participants will be encouraged to think and apply themselves creatively, making it the core of their innovations. Milan’s cultural legacy and their success in business will be the focus of the programme’s participants who will be taken on field visits to the country to study their culture, art, their role in improving the creativity and leadership of young citizens.

At the graduation ceremony, Reem BinKaram, Member of the Board of Trustees of Rubu’ Qarn Foundation for Creating Leaders and Innovators, said, “The Programme was launched 10 years ago and has produced over 400 graduates who have trained at leading organisations in the UK, USA and Singapore. They have met with peers and exchanged ideas at the likes of Cambridge, INSEAD and Stanford.

“These efforts are in line with the commitment of the UAE and Sharjah to invest in human capital, and continues the important work done in the field by the country’s visionary leader late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan.” BinKaram added, “SLP has grown tremendously, thanks to the directives of the Ruler of Sharjah, and the continuous support it has received from both government and private sectors.

“Our efforts are embedded in our belief that we must train our youth to help build a post-oil economy and lead the future diversification efforts of the UAE.” Sultan Al Saberi, Head of Human Resources, Bee’ah (SLP’s strategic partner), said, “Bee’ah has been an SLP partner for five years. It is a great achievement to see participants doing so well at the programme and working diligently to complete it successfully.”
