Both founders were passionate about establishing an effective platform for professional growth of Qatari Nationals to network, explore and benefit from the expertise of industry leaders.

Ms. Fleming, Founder of Launch, said: “We are delighted to be hosting the second Launch Conference later in the year, especially as all of our participants were so dedicated and enthusiastic during the inaugural event. Launch provides a local platform for Qatari participants to be challenged, grow and to continuously network. Furthermore, Launch is beneficial for Qatari Nationals who already have some business or career experience, who are looking to continue developing their career or professional practice.”

“We are passionate about actively engaging with all of our participants, supporting Qatarisation to businesses through Launch, and also organising dynamic learning activities that will contribute to the achievement of the Qatar National Vision,” Ms. Fleming added.

Moreover, Launch believes that ongoing development and networking is required to support the professional growth of all Qatari participants. Apart from a series of annual conferences, Launch provides a highly interactive series of learning events post the conference including: workshops, coaching and mentoring services, interactive web and social media advice, as well as networking opportunities through Launch Knowledge, which provides forums for discussion on issues and opportunities related to career growth along with an introduction to industry leaders and experts.
