(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Orpic Women's Leadership Forum recently organised leadership workshops at the company's Sohar complex.


The forum was set up recently to drive the enhancement of women's capabilities in the company and serve as a knowledge- and experiencesharing platform to generate new ideas that might provide further opportunities for Omani women at Orpic to assume leadership roles.


At the workshops, held on two different days, a number of leading women from various institutions gave inspirational and motivational presentations. Omani women participated effectively demonstrating their interest in listening to speakers and interacting with them.


The forum invited to the first workshop Salwa al Housni from PDO; Maryam al Shaibani, interface manager - Oman Oil Co; Ayesha al Shoily, head of internal communication from Nawras; and Majida al Mamari, representative of Omani Women's Association (OWA), Seeb branch.


The event was also strongly supported by senior management with Raphael De Loenen (COO), Nofal al Saidi (HRS GM), Essam al Shaibani (Mina Al Fahal Refinery GM), and Luigi Slaviero (adviser, CEO's office) all present. At the second workshop, entitled The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,' the speakers were Siham al Harthy, director general of planning and studies, Ministry of Housing; Shaima al Lawati, CEO of Road Safety Association; Benita Stafford Coach, expert from Takatuf; and Haniyah al Hadhrami, marketing manager, Angham.


In their presentations, the speakers highlighted the experience and knowledge that helped them achieve their goals. One of the guests stressed the importance of prioritising tasks, setting achievable goals, and how to achieve them.


The second workshop was introduced by Dr Hilal Abdullah al Hinai, general manager of support services, who said, ''Omani history is full of success stories of great Omani women who achieved through hard work and determination. We believe in the capabilities of Omani women especially with the support they enjoy these days to help them achieve their goals.


However, we believe that the seeds of success are determination, belief in one's self, improving knowledge, and possession of the necessary skills. This means that achieving success depends on the people themselves and their willingness to work for their ambitions. We urge all Orpic female employees to take this opportunity to develop themselves and enrich their experience.''
