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.

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.’
