AIESEC Holds its Semi-Annual National Conference (NatCo) at AUK

The National Conference (NatCo) is a semi-annual event organized by AIESEC that features seminars, workshops, and other activities that are aimed to develop the skills and competencies of young professionals. In April, the American University of Kuwait (AUK) hosted its second National Conference where members of AIESEC took part in it to create better professional opportunities for themselves within the organizations in which they work, and beyond. The two-day event was sponsored by Talabat.com as part of their youth support initiatives.

The sessions that took place at the conference were tailored towards developing skills that will create leaders who empower others, are solution-oriented, are self-aware, and are global citizens. They were conducted by members of the Executive Board of AIESEC in Kuwait-Amani Khalaf (President of AIESEC in Kuwait), Dalal Al-Muraished (National Vice President of Talent Management & Finance), and Zahraa Alawi (Head of Exchange Programs), as well as Nasser Thani, who is a member of AIESEC in Bahrain and Mahmoud Mirza, Member of the Board of Directors of AIESEC in Bahrain and Founder of AIESEC in Kuwait.

Faisal Al-Mosawi, CEO of Move to Improve Co., was invited as an external speaker. He relayed his personal experiences in overcoming the adversities he faced following an accident he had and how his perseverance and willingness to improve his situation contributed to his numerous successes, including obtaining a scuba diving license.

"During these two days, our members came together from more than four different universities to revive their international strategies and direction of AIESEC, at the same time enhancing their skills for their selected roles that include marketing, sales, operations and PR. The National Conference provides a space to foster creativity from the members and develop few of the many skills that are required in the job markets across the world," explained Amani Khalaf, President of AIESEC in Kuwait.

AIESEC is an international, non-governmental, not-for-profit, youth-run organization that was founded in 1948 and exists in 126 countries. It focuses on developing the leadership potential of youth through cultural exchange programs, and community development projects. Currently, it has more than 1 million alumni, including Bill Clinton. Such success has been enabled by the assistance of their many global partners, including UNESCO, Google and Unilever. Locally, AIESEC in Kuwait started in September 2013, and currently has around 200 members and alumni.
