A first-of-its-kind forum, Sohar International encourages everyone in the industry to attend the event to make the most of a truly inspirational session that highlights important life lessons.

Knowledge sharing events like the Viewpoints also help shape the economy especially with the government’s support towards SMEs and the growing number of skilled youth joining the national workforce. Targeting the local workforce, it offers talented individuals who are eager to work, a better understanding of the local and international markets, valuable insights into the global economy and the opportunities and challenges it presents, as well as the knowledge to implement various self-development techniques.
Giving participants the chance to ask questions is a key feature of the event. As opposed to merely attending seminars, the virtual Viewpoints sessions seek to address the concerns and curiosities of the keen minds by dedicating a separate time for interactions. Increased interaction and engagement promote a better understanding of key concepts and fosters the right environment to generate new ideas. It also helps in the development of interpersonal skills and problem-solving capabilities that are imperative at any workplace. By encouraging participants to voice their opinions, the session becomes more engaging, productive and dynamic.
