Entrepreneurs’ forum begins today

RAMY SALAMA

DOHA THE EO Majlis, an event organised by the Qatar chapter of the Entrepreneurs’ Organisation (EO), will be held on Saturday and Sunday.

Speaking at a press conference to announce the event, Khalifa al Misnad, president of EO Qatar, outlined the objective of the event. “EO Majlis is intended to bring regional entrepreneurs together, not only to better themselves but also to give back to, and to participate in the development of their wider community,” he said.

The event will offer members of EO the opportunity to network in private on the first day. The second day’s event will be held at the Qatar National Convention Centre, and will be open to the general public.

It will feature keynote speeches by internationally renowned entrepreneur and author Ben Casnocha, and innovation guru Charles Leadbeater. There will also be a panel discussion on the role of education in supporting entrepreneurship, in which the two keynote speakers and Dr Sheikha al Misnad, president of Qatar University, and Noora al Mannai, CEO of Enterprise Qatar, will participate.

“We would like, in this way, to include all the members of the community who are interested in entrepreneurship”, said Mohamed Jaidah, event chairperson of EO Qatar.

“We are interested in providing a fertile ground for entrepreneurship, and in increasing their number by providing them with incentives and opportunities for growth”, said Hamad al Abdan, chief business operating officer of Enterprise Qatar, which is sponsoring the event along with Standard Chartered Bank Qatar.

Charles Carlson, CEO of Standard Chartered Bank Qatar, said “Through supporting EO Majlis, we hope to contribute to the local business community and the wellbeing of the country”.

Verne Harnish, who founded EO 25 years ago, was also present at the press conference.

He said he was inspired to start the group by Steve Jobs, whom he met many years ago.
