Delegates from Mobily, the second largest telecoms company in Saudi Arabia, visited the UK in January to develop their management skills.

Fourteen participants spent two weeks in the UK undertaking the programme, which involved one week of classroom-based workshops at Henley Business School's Whiteknights campus, and another week of industrial visits.

The Future Digital Leadership programme, developed and delivered jointly by Henley's Digital Talent Academy (DTA) and Huawei Global Learning Service, covered concepts and models of business strategy, planning and management, methods and techniques of business management in the digital era.

Addressing requirements from the client company, and considering the varied backgrounds of the delegates, the programme encouraged active interactions and engagement from the participants through debates and discussions with Henley faculty and Huawei experts.

During their industrial visits, the delegation visited a digital service provider of Volume AI, a local government of London Redbridge Borough, China Unicom Europe and BT headquarters.

The two-week programme came to a close with a presentation of certificates by Professor Keiichi Nakata, Head of Business Informatics Systems and Accounting, and Jean-Pierre Choulet, Vice Dean and Director of Development and Alumni, who confirmed the delegates would now be part of Henley's prestigious alumni network.

Each delegate also received a souvenir of their time at Henley from programme director Professor Kechung Liu, and gifts relating to Chinese New Year.

Participant Rand Alkhalaf said: "By attending this programme, the Mobily elites acquired knowledge and skills that enable us to contribute more to the company."

Muhannad Alshehri also said: "We hope to come back to Henley Business School one day soon when we become real leaders."
