Batelco announced joining hands with London Business School to provide a tailored, first-of its kind executive talent programme in Bahrain, which will see several of Batelco’s aspiring young talents developed for senior roles within the organisation.
The partnership marks the first time that the London Business School has created an executive talent programme to develop the next generation of leaders for the telecom industry in Bahrain.
The two-phased programme consists of 6-months of training, covering six modules to develop strategic leadership skills by attending virtual training sessions with renowned members of the LBS faculty.
The participants will later also go to the LBS campus in London where they will have the opportunity to put the learnings from their training into action through engaging discussions and a final project. The Batelco participants will also be making site visits to technology leaders in the United Kingdom to learn from their experiences and success stories.
Dean of London Business School, François Ortalo-Magné, said: “Our first such strategic learning partnership in the Kingdom of Bahrain, this builds on our global experience and also our experience of working with many executives within the Kingdom who have attended our degree and executive programmes, contributing to the strength of our local alumni network.”
Batelco Chief Human Resources Officer Faisal Al Jalahma said “The LBS programme is designed to build industry-specific capabilities with young team members who can lead Batelco’s future digital strategy. Additionally, the knowledge gained will ultimately contribute to an enhanced experience for Batelco’s customers.”
