The Mohammed bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG), the first research and teaching institution focusing on governance and public policy in the Arab world, has launched the Leadership Club initiative, at the closing ceremony for the School’s “Future Trip” programme.
The Club is the first of its kind in Dubai, it seeks to enhance effective communication and strengthen bonds and cooperation among Dubai Government officials by promoting the exchange of knowledge and best practices. The initiative effectively builds a network of strategic partnerships, promotes teamwork, and encourages creativity and the exchange of ideas among government decision makers. It also introduces participants to the latest applications and technologies through lectures, workshops and an e-library aggregating all relevant legislations and government strategies, as well as scientific references.
His Excellency Dr Ali bin Sebaa Al Marri, Executive President of MBRSG, attended the ceremony, and Professor Raed Awamleh, Dean of MBRSG, along with H.E Eng. Rashid Al Leem, Chairman of Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA); Hanan Mansour Ahli, Director of the Competitiveness Culture Department at the Federal Competitiveness & Statistics Authority (FCSA); and a number of Government officials who took part in the Future Trip programme.
“We are looking to promote teamwork and spark effective communication and information sharing between Dubai Government entities,” H.E. Dr Al Marri said, “which serves to streamline decision-making and helps set compatible and synergistic policies across various Government bodies. The Club reflects MBRSG’s commitment to consistently introducing new and innovative approaches to engage its members and encourage out-of-the-box thinking, all in a bid to promote sustainable development and long-term results.”
The Club is set to bring together a distinguished group of Dubai Government executives in a number of activities, which include a monthly networking breakfast, where local and international experts will be invited to deliver scientific lectures. Members will discuss the most important topics in the government sector, introducing the initiatives and events of each institution, as well as ways to develop them.
