Some of the world’s most renowned business and leadership thinkers will discuss key topics in critical leadership and people issues for businesses in the GCC at the Leadership and Talent Forum which inaugurates today in Dubai.


Taking place until 28 November, the Leadership and Talent Forum is presented by Al Khafji Joint Operations (KJO), a joint operation between the national oil and gas companies of Saudi Arabia (Saudi Aramco) and Kuwait (The Kuwait Oil Company), and will be attended by senior business leaders as well as talent and HR Directors from major companies in the GCC.


Anas Salmeen, Analyst, KJO, the hosts of the forum, will deliver the welcome address followed by a keynote seminar by Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management Practice at the London Business School.  The seminar will spotlight some of the global trends in leadership and talent development and how the future of work will evolve in advanced economies.




Lynda has been ranked by The Times as one of the top 20 business thinkers in the world today and was selected by The Financial Times as the business thinker most likely to make a real difference over the next decade. 


“Tapping the right talent at every growth phase is the key to a company’s success, said Dr. Saleh Salem Al-Marri, Superintendent, Planning and Employees Support, Al-Khafji Joint Operations. 


“The Leadership and Talent Forum will offer advice on how to identify talent gaps and utilise talent sources while providing a platform to industry experts from some of the world’s top companies to discuss strategies and best practices that lead to talent management success.”  


Experts from Standard Chartered Bank, ARASCO, Union National Bank and Saudi Airlines will be among the first group of panelists in the morning of the two-day forum to discuss the building of robust and sustainable leadership bench strength.


They will be joined by Ehad Hassan, Group CHRO and EVP, National Bank of Abu Dhabi who will address delegates about developing a pipeline of national business leaders to meet national agendas.


The inaugural Leadership and Talent Forum will also host a top assembly of regional HR and Leadership experts including Hussain Al Obaidly, Head of HR, MENAT, GE Oil and Gas, who will deliver a presentation about overcoming talent deficiencies such as a shrinking talent pool and an ageing workforce in the oil and gas sector.


Mike Forde, former Director of Football Operations at Chelsea Football Club and currently a strategic advisor to the San Antonio Spurs and McLaren Formula 1’s Applied Technologies division will deliver the keynote seminar on the second day of The Leadership and Talent forum about playing in a winning team and talent and team performance lessons from the premier league.


“In modern leadership, it is impossible for organisations to succeed without leaders who know how to attract, retain, develop and manage talent,” said Forde ahead of his presentation at The Leadership and Talent Forum tomorrow.


“Speaking at The Leadership and Talent Forum provides a great opportunity to be on the same stage as some great thinkers in the world of leadership and talent at a time where the race for talent – across all sectors including sport – and the global nature of talent management, has never been as critical as now.”




Also speaking at a panel discussion on the second day of the Leadership and Talent Forum will be experts from Du, Saudi Bin Ladin Group, STC Group and Alolayan Group who will focus on national talent development in all organisation layers.   


The forum will culminate with a presentation by Sangeeth Ibrahim, Head of Learning and Development, Sharjah Islamic Bank about managing and engaging with an inter-generational workforce.
