MELA 6’s last day started off with an impassioned and inspirational talk by Mr. Mohammad Husain, President & CEO of EQUATE.
His attitude and dedication to addressing the needs and development of the next generation of leaders was impressive and encouraging!
The session was attended and enjoyed by special guests, MELA alumni from previous academies and many others.
After a hefty lunch and a session about the ‘Power of MELA’, it was the time for the GRADUATION… but first, the speeches by Mr. John Pay from Shell Kuwait and Mr. Qusai Al Amer from Kuwait Oil Company.
The great KOC team that facilitated and supported MELA’s academy to reach its full potential.
