Saudi women graduates complete Nestlé course
Riyadh, August 29, 2013
Ten Saudi women graduates completed a four-week skills development and alignment programme with the Nestle Centre of Excellence recently.
The graduates, in the fields of pharmacology, biology and chemistry, enrolled into the Nutrition Development Programme that focused on the subject of infant nutrition and important supplementary skills that aimed to develop commercial and technical skills useful in the company environment.
Roger Meguerdichian, country manager, said: “We were able to build on both their knowledge and aptitude and equip them with essential commercial skills required in today’s marketplace.”
“These young women I am sure will turn out to be model corporate citizens, one of our core aims, and make a valuable contribution to both the people they will interact with and the company they represent.”
The programme featured public and one to one presentation skills, besides training on the ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ and business etiquette, said a statement.
“Communicating efficiently and effectively and in a way familiar to both business and individual clients is central to building relationships and business,” said Meguerdichian.
Nestlé Saudi will offer job opportunities to around 40 per cent of the participants of the programme, mainly in the field of nutrition, said the statement. - TradeArabia News Service
