Kaplan Genesis at Mohamed Bin Zayed Majlis for Future Generations
This event staged, in three large halls inside the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center( ADNEC), was presented under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Chairman of the Executive Council of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
The two-day summit brought together over 3,000 Emirati university students in a dynamic program of plenary sessions and breakouts alongside a fun, hands-on approach to problem-solving.
Kaplan Genesis was proud to be invited to design and deliver one of these breakout sessions entitled:
‘Get smarter with your money - Insights to boost your financial literacy’
Our belief, now more than ever, is that students must learn to ‘speak finance’ for their voice to be heard ….no matter what their formal budget responsibility may be in the future.
The event had our two facilitators speaking to over 100 Emirati attendees on a topic that obviously resonated well with the young students. The messages were clear;
The implications of not being financial literate through participation in an interactive and illustrative multiple choice quiz
How understanding the importance of financial literacy now will allow them to be better equipped to deal with the volatile, uncertain, and complex business realities when they enter the world of work.
And why the importance of striving to develop their behavioural skills alongside their current technical learning will hold them in good stead and enable them to fulfil their ambitions -to become the ‘Leaders of Tomorrow’.
Kaplan Genesis has a double helix approach to professional development.
We believe improving decision-making by developing both Behavioural Confidence and Technical Competence is the very DNA of great leadership. Our programs deliver the right mix of behavioural and technical development throughout to drive performance and produce results. Kaplan Genesis is part of the global Kaplan family- the world’s largest diverse educator established for over 75 years.
