The programme was launched under the patronage of H E Sayyid Salim Mussalam al Busaidi, Undersecretary for Administrative Affairs and Development in the Ministry of Civil Service.
Following the success of Springboard, which was specifically for women, Spring Forward is open to both men and women who aspire to lead.
Ian Dench, CEO of Ooredoo, said, “We want our customers to enjoy the Internet. We also want entrepreneurs to prosper from the Internet. Our commitment is to contribute to the growth and development of Oman’s economy by nurturing the country’s talent and supporting digital business. Through this programme, we are providing opportunities which will empower and develop the younger generation. Open to men and women across all sectors, Spring Forward is all about Oman’s future leaders.”
Spring Forward focuses on growing and further developing the strengths of its participants by teaching them how to be more aware, build team working skills, and demonstrate the required leadership skills to rise to the top.
Highly motivated candidates looking to drive change will work closely with industry leaders and licensed trainers to develop their own leadership style and build on their strengths. Currently, 80 participants from different sectors and ministries have registered and started their first session.
Ooredoo’s commitment to inspiring the next generation is driven by the values of promoting human growth. It has trained hundreds of women from its previous development programme and aims to see hundreds more men and women alike benefit from Spring Forward.
