The students got a chance to step out of their routine classroom environment, and connect to the real Business World. They not only got an insight on banking, but different aspects of business including finance, public relations, marketing, human resource and information technology.
This extremely well-structured and interesting training session began with a fun-filled ice breaker followed by a presentation on the Banking System in Kuwait, and the Vision and Mission of Al Ahli Bank by enthusiastic Mr. Abdullah Behbehani and Ms Fatima.
Through the highly interactive session by Fajr Al Kindari from the Public Relations department, the students learnt about Corporate Social Responsibility, writing a press release and more. The students were very keen to know more about taking Public Relations as their career. They were escorted in small groups to the different sections of the bank and explained in detail about the Banking operations by Abdul Wahab. Mr. Paulson and Mr. Sebastian explained complex financial matters in a clear manner and lived up to the message of Al Ahli Bank that says ‘Re-imaging to a simpler Bank’, which doesn’t mean doing simple things but doing complex procedures in a simpler way.
The session with the HR and the insights on internship and interviews was very informative for the students, who would want to see themselves as Bankers of Tomorrow.
Students together with their teachers returned to their school with a profound understanding of the bank daily activities.
