The ‘Women in Business’ conference is attracting great interest from speakers, sponsors and delegates from around the Gulf. It will be held on June 2 and 3 at Shangri La’s Barr al Jissah Resort and Spa in Muscat.

Dr. Sheikha Hissah Saad Abdullah Al Sabah is the latest speaker to join the impressive list of outstanding leaders and successful businesswomen addressing the participants. The Wave has confirmed its position as platinum sponsor, Omantel and Oman Mobile have joined as Partners.

Rihab Al Hajj, business development manager of Envent, said: “We are delighted to be receiving such enormous support from neighbouring countries as well as within the Sultanate and continue to handle many enquiries on a daily basis.

“We are honoured that Dr Sheikha Hissah, chairperson of the Council of Arab Businesswomen, chairperson of Kuwait Businesswomen Committee and also deputy chairperson of Woman Affairs Committee, has given her support to the conference and agreed to be part of this fascinating line-up of speakers.”

Thanks to the generous educational sponsorship of Qalhat LNG, senior undergraduate business students from Sultan Qaboos University and business colleges in Muscat have been invited to attend the conference as delegates, free of charge, while Silver Sponsor Ericsson, is sending all female employees to the groundbreaking event.

“I see this event as very important for women from a variety of backgrounds, countries and industries to gather for good discussion and knowledge sharing,” said Ericsson general manager Peter A Anderson.

“Seeing the participation list of speakers, I am convinced that all attendees will walk out very much empowered and this is exactly why Ericsson Oman is proud to send our employees to this excellent initiative,” he said.

The conference’s Platinum Sponsor, The Wave, will host a visit of the prominent speakers at their project on the 1st June.

Omantel and Oman Mobile will be supporting the conference with the latest technology in telecommunications and two of their senior executives namely, Aneth Arosemena, head of sales and marketing for Oman Mobile and Fathiya Nasser Al Farsi, IT director of Omantel, will share knowledge and expertise with the delegates
