Launch, a series of associated learning events to support career enhancement for Qatari nationals, will host its second Conference on 1–3 December 2015 at the Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel​.

Launch facilitates the professional development of Qatari Nationals by equipping them with professional knowledge and skills, as well as cultivating responsibility, ambition and ownership for their personal career development. In addition, Launch fosters a community of leaders through both collaborative and engaging networking events and by also providing forums so participants can connect on a professional level. With this in mind, the three day Launch conference has been specifically tailored to suit participants’ profiles and needs, all the high profile speakers have been carefully selected to impart their knowledge, as well as to provide industry insight and business understanding.

In addition to annual conferences, Launch provides a highly interactive series of learning events post the conference including workshops, coaching and mentoring services, interactive social media advice, as well as networking opportunities, which provide forums for discussion on issues and opportunities related to professional development.

The second Launch Conference will centre on the theme, ‘Mind and Motivation’ which will explore critical thinking skills, problem solving, motivating self and others as well as examine emotional intelligence and professional mindfulness.
