In light of our social commitment to our community's growth and development, Business Lobby took part in two major events in the past two weeks
The first initiative was organized by the USAID University Scholarship Programs (USP) Alumni Chapter in collaboration with AUB's Office of Alumni Relations. The purpose of the initiative was to provide students and graduates of the American University of Beirut with career mentoring and advice.
This initiative was very important to Business Lobby, and specifically to our Managing Director, Mrs. Tina Badran Kfoury, as it provided an opportunity to share the experience gained over the years and, of course, to help the younger generations. Thanks to the Office of Alumni, AUB students and graduates now have the opportunity to connect with AUB alumni around the world and benefit from their invaluable experience and professional advice on the AUB Alumni Mentoring Platform, where Tina is very active.
The second event that Business Lobby was part of was a panel discussion organized to announce the partnership between the International Executive School - Paris and Standards, as well as to celebrate 10 Years of Standards. The event was hosted by the CEO of Standards, Dr. Hady Safa, and focused on "Talent Retention & Development Challenges in Lebanon."
The panel discussed the different challenges that both employers and employees are facing nowadays. In response to these challenges, Tina and other panelists suggested best practices and solutions for training and development in the region, based on their journeys and experiences. Participants also had the chance to share some real-life experiences related to employment and talent retention.
Business Lobby is known for believing that there is always something that can be done for the greater good. Seeing the economic and job struggles that Lebanon is facing has made us more eager than ever to go the extra mile and offer a more diverse way of providing services.
