Mentorship Forum Middle East (MFME) yesterday announced that the National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) has joined the upcoming 2022 edition of the event as the Lead Partner for the third consecutive year.  NBB is set to work closely with the Forum’s Organising Committee aimed at supporting the career progression of professionals and helping organisations meet their talent development goals.

The Forum will once again take place in Bahrain as a hybrid event, with physical and online attendance, and is set to be held in December 2022. NBB will join the Forum’s “Think Tank”, an advisory group to design the agenda.

Among the topics to be addressed by the Forum will be continued education of audiences on the importance of mentorship and its effectiveness in training the next generation of business leaders, looking at how the Covid-19 pandemic has continued to impact training and development goals and progression as well as sustainably and climate transition and how organisations and mentors are preparing to meet this important challenge and opportunity.

The forum last year welcomed more than 300 senior HR and mentorship experts as well as C-suite leaders from across sectors in person and online.


Jean-Christophe Durand, NBB’s Chief Executive Officer said, “We look forward to another engaging event and to bringing together mentorship and development experts to exchange our experiences and discuss how mentorship can be used to address organisational training needs and those of the young professionals whose progression we are dedicated to fostering and accelerating in the years ahead.”


Zahraa Taher, Managing Director of FinMark Communications, the Forum’s founder and organiser, said, “Working with their senior management team and HR experts, and alongside our other partners and contributors, we are planning another dynamic event that can help put mentorship at the heart of professional development across the region.”
