The afternoon of Day 16 was dedicated to a workshop on Arab Role Models led by Hamza Chraibi, founder of Arab Excellence (AE). Teams were asked to analyse what makes and drives several Arab inspirational entrepreneurs and leaders including:
Omar Samra: Entrepreneur & youngest Arab to climb the Everest and become an astronaut.
Nezha Bidouane: Double world & Olympic champion.
Ossama Haddanein: One of the most successful entrepreneurs and investors in the Silicon Valley.
Hussam Abu Issa: COO of Salaam International- a leading Arab Conglomerate.
Students were then tasked to make a powerpoint presentation on specific insights they learnt from this model and how they could apply this learning to their own career roadmap and achieve excellence.
At the end of the workshop, each team presented their work before Hamza, Peter Zemsky as well as the rest of the participants. Each presentation was filmed and followed by a short Q&A.
Thank you Hamza for the very inspiring afternoon!
