International Bank of Qatar (ibq) organised two high level workshops on international trade finance for the benefit of its corporate customers and internal staff members. ibq partnered with Vincent O’Brien, highly respected international trade finance practitioner, who was leading these workshops over two full intense days. These workshops provided participants with an update on the latest developments in trade finance operations and global trends in international trade, followed by a focus on case studies, practical aspects, legal landscape and recent important developments in international trade finance products.

Giving customers the opportunity to interact with global leaders in the banking and finance industry reinforces ibq’s focus to grow and deepen its customer relationships. With over 20 years of experience in international trade finance, Mr O’Brien has supported many global organisations with financial guidance and delivered trainings in more than 80 countries worldwide. He was recently appointed Chair of the ICC Banking Commission Market Intelligence Group and is a trade finance consultant for the World Bank Group’s programmes.

ibq is honoured to partner with Mr. Vincent O’Brien and I would like to warmly thank him for the time and dedication he gave to ibq. Sharing his knowledge and his solid international experience is incredibly valuable to the Bank’s customers and internal staff” commented Omar Bouhadiba, ibq’s Managing Director.

These workshops are also fully in line with ibq’s values and commitment to invest in the professional development of its employees. “Skills trainings and solid people management are at the very core of ibq’s human resource strategy. Talent growth is a critical aspect of the Bank's current and future success. It has been our top priority since day one and will be for the years to come” added Mr. Bouhadiba.
