Insights Session: Leading Through Uncertain Economy and Challenging Times

Uncertain economy and unpredictable circumstances are omnipresent in business world. Pandemic that we faced in 2020 and are still facing across the globe had given us a curve ball - companies need to rise to the occasion, make difficult decisions, re-engage and motivate employee, and juggle family life in between. We will hear from prominent Middle East female leaders how to lead through challenging times and compete sucessfully in volatile markets.

Panel Discussion: Future of Work - Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Throughout 2020, a distinctive term has been crafted that is now an unavoidable part of almost every conversation, be it professional or personal - work from home. Something that was unthinkable before is now challenging corporations to rethink their strategies and policies. However, pandemic hasn't only brought work home, it brought up profound questions around work-life balance and how much more it is impacting women who sometimes had two jobs- one at the office and one at home. It also showed us that skills employees required ten years ago are not the skills needed today. We will listen to these fantastic speakers that will guide us through their thoughts on what have we learned from 2020 that will give us tailwinds to better manage the workforce of tomorrow.

Keynote Session: Motivation, Reenergize and Future of Workforce for Women

The best fuel for diversity is diversity itself. We will reach the point of no return when men and women are equally attached to true diverse workforce, family-friendly policies, fair competition and equality in recognition of performance. More and more dual-career couples are leading the transition to a fully diverse workplace. Our children and grandchildren will not believe that it took us so long to make that change happen. Our speaker proposes to review together the milestones and define this point of no return which is first a mindset in the leadership and becomes with time a defining trait of the company culture

Panel Discussion: Re-energizing Our Workforce

The energy sector is often known for innovation and growth, but what about when it comes to re-energizing the workforce in a world exhausted by a pandemic? Albert Einstein said, “In the midst of every crisis lies great opportunity.” The pandemic has turned the old rules of the workplace into new ones, it increased the need for empathy, compassion, and it accelerated the need for new ideas and solutions. This has forced us to think closer inside us, about how we can re-energize ourselves and our organizations to restore and sustain our energy before the crisis. In this session, hear from top industry experts on what they have done to unleash the full potential of their team and what they have done to recharge themselves after the pandemic.
