Programme offers 100 young professionals the opportunity to develop international connections
In collaboration with the Qatar Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’, Arcadis successfully hosted its recent annual young talent programme, Global Shapers, in Doha.
The event was attended by over 100 young professionals and 15 Arcadis officials who spent a week working together and learning from each other, the design and consultancy firm said.
Global Shapers is an annual six-month programme that Arcadis set up in 2012, and which offers 100 young professionals from around the world the chance to develop international connections and share knowledge.
The core theme for this year’s event was ‘Client Focus’. As well as bringing local knowledge and professional skills, the future leaders from Ashghal also offered a client’s perspective on all of the solutions developed.
Jack Overkamp, managing director, Arcadis Qatar welcomed the president of Ashghal, HE Engr. Nasser bin Ali Al Mawlawi to the event.
“We were privileged and very fortunate to have Ashghal take part in this year’s Global Shapers event. The insight that their leaders and young professionals shared throughout the week will be of benefit to all,” said Graham Reid, CEO, Arcadis Middle East.
