A prized day for scholars.

PARTICIPANTS in the Crown Prince's International Scholarship Programme's (CPISP) sixth annual Action Learning Programme have delivered their final presentations.

Top ministry and business officials were on hand to hear speeches from teams representing platinum sponsors Alba and Batelco and the Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company.

Also in attendance at the Crown Prince's Court in Riffa were Finance Minister Shaikh Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa, EDB chief executive and CPISP board member Shaikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa, and Alba chairman and Mumtalakat deputy chief executive officer Mahmood Al Kooheji.

Alba chief executive officer Laurent Schmitt, Batelco Group chief executive officer Peter Kaliaropoulos and Batelco chief executive officer Rashid Abdulla were also present.

CPISP director Dr Ronald Koller thanked the participating companies and praised the quality of the presentations and the recommendations proposed by the teams.

Each team, consisting of CPISP students and delegates from the participating organisations, presented recommendations and proposed solutions to real business challenges assigned to them at the programme launch.

They also shared their experiences of personal growth and development via this project, which is based on the concept of Action Learning - an educational process where participants study their own actions and experiences to improve performance. Following the presentations, participants were awarded certificates in recognition of their achievements.
