The American University of Kuwait Sponsors "Conquering the Impossible" Presented by 2015 Public Speaking Award Winner, Mohammed Al-Qahtani

Under the Sponsorship of the American University of Kuwait (AUK), the Institute of Banking Studies (KIBS) hosted world-renowned speaker, Mohammed Al-Qahtani in the Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and Industry last week. The lecture explored techniques of setting goals and achieving them while coping with unpredictable circumstances, new environments and conquering challenges. Al-Qahtani stressed the importance of assessing and recognizing one's personal skills for goal-setting; in addition to having the skill to avert obstacles and overcome challenges to achieve one's ambitions.

Al-Qahtani also discussed the importance of conducting personality trait analyses for the purpose of placing individuals in teams based on their personal and professional strengths which would ultimately contribute to achieving organizational goals effectively.

Among the topics of discourse were the ability to handle customers and clients, and what an organization can offer in terms of customer service that would distinguish it from others— such as presenting a professional image, listening attentively, controlling one's emotions, and effective problem-solving skills.

The lecture was attended by employees of private and public sectors, in addition to students of all levels where fundamental concepts were explained for those who wish to succeed professionally. PR & Marketing Director, Mr. Amer El-Assaad attended the event where he received an honorary plaque on behalf of AUK.
