Finance Minister to open 2nd annual Mentorship Forum Middle East

Mentorship Forum Middle East (MFME) 2021 announced that the Minister of Finance and National Economy Shaikh Salman bin Khalifa Al Khalifa will open the Forum’s second edition with a keynote address on this year’s theme “Prioritizing Mentorship in a New World”.


The event will be held on November 11, as a hybrid event with expected participation from more than 400 C-Suite leaders, HR and mentorship experts and up-and-coming professionals across sectors.


The minister will address a local, regional and international audience on the importance of mentorship following significant workplace changes that have resulted in the wake of COVID-19 and how mentorship can be leveraged to keep training and development goals and ultimately business and economic goals on track.



“We couldn’t be more proud to announce Shaikh Salman bin Khalifa Al-Khalifa, Bahrain’s Minister of Finance and National Economy, as our keynote speaker. His interest and support for the event underscores the important nature of mentorship and the prominent role it can play in supporting human capital development and in turn broader economic advancement and growth, which go hand in hand. Strong human capital and talent pools are key drivers of economic progress and expansion and we look forward to hearing his remarks and giving our attendees this unique opportunity to benefit from his vast experience and insights,” Zahraa Taher, Managing Director of FinMark Communications, the Forum’s Founder and Organizer, said.


The Forum’s interactive sessions and workshops, which will follow Shaikh Salman’s address, will look to closely examine a range of topics relating to changes in workplace that have resulted from the pandemic, gaps in training and development that have occurred and the role mentorship can play in ensuring talent development goals stay or get back on track in the new working order. Panel discussions will cover: Mentorship and Meeting Talent Development Gaps in the Hybrid Workplace, Mentorship for Boards, Cross Mentorship and the Leveraging of Diverse Talent Pools, Technology-Focused Mentoring, Mentorship for Entrepreneurs and SMEs and Speed Mentoring. The event’s high level speakers and panelists will soon be announced.
