NBB backs mentorship forum

MANAMA: Mentorship Forum Middle East (MFME) announced the National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) has joined the upcoming 2022 edition of the event as lead partner for the third consecutive year.

The bank has played a strategic role in the forum’s success in 2019 and 2021 and is set to work closely with the forum’s organising committee to deliver another timely and relevant event aimed at supporting the career progression of professionals and helping organisations meet their talent development goals.

The forum will once again take place in Bahrain as a hybrid event, with physical and online attendance, and is set to be held in December.

Leveraging its expertise and success in mentorship, NBB will join the forum’s ‘Think Tank’, an advisory group assembled each year to design the agenda and ensure the most pressing themes and topics of the day are covered.

Among the topics to be addressed by the forum will be continued education on the importance of mentorship and its effectiveness in training the next generation of business leaders, looking at how the Covid-19 pandemic has continued to impact training and development goals and progression as well as sustainably and climate transition and how organisations and mentors are preparing to meet this important challenge and opportunity.

The forum will once again feature participation from top regional and international speakers and attendees with last year’s event having welcomed more than 300 senior HR and mentorship experts as well as C-suite leaders from across sectors in person and online.

NBB chief executive Jean-Christophe Durand said, “We are pleased to support Mentorship Forum Middle East as its lead partner for a third year. Since the forum’s inception, we have remained committed to elevating the position of mentorship as a critical tool both for the economy as well as for NBB.”
