Qatari students were welcomed at Doha Marriott Hotel in Al Fayrouz ballroom where they attended an intimate presentation about the newly launched Tahseen Program. Among the speakers there were Marriott International representatives from the Middle East & Africa region - Sayed Haggag, Market Director of Human Resources MEA/Africa and Bassam Al-Monthiry, Senior Talent Acquisition Manager MEA/Africa. The aim of the Tahseen Program is to provide young aspiring Qataris with an opportunity to be immersed in all areas of the hospitality industry during a 6 – 12 month period. Partaking in Tahseen program will allow its participants to engage and interact with some of hospitality’s key players enabling them to take advantage of developing for managerial opportunities within an exciting industry of hospitality.
The presentation was also attended by General Managers and Human Resources leaders from all 8 Marriott properties in Doha which provided engaging conversations and opportunities for participants to ask questions about the program. The presentation was very interactive and participants had the chance to answer quiz questions and win exciting presents from all the hotels. Afterwards, all participants enjoyed a lunch break inspired by Marriott’s exclusive event platform called Meetings Imagined developed around the idea that “Every meeting has a purpose”.
