trends, while reinforcing the role of young leaders and linking ties between
the economic sectors in order to improve Sharjah and consolidate its position
as a highly competitive emirate.

innovation, leadership, entrepreneurship, and support for novel projects that
serve as key tools towards comprehensive development, stimulating community
outreach, volunteer work, and Corporate Social Responsibility. The forum also
seeks to promote fruitful cooperation with major consulting firms, research
centers, and international and local universities to ensure the improvement of
future generations in the field of leadership and management.
