Mubadala

Students at Zayed University got a dose inspiration from Mubadala CEO Khaldoon Al Mubarak at the second session of the 100 Mentors initiative.

100 Mentors is a program organized by the Emirates Youth Council to connect Emirati youth with role models in both private and government industries.

In the most recent session, Khaldoon Al Mubarak took the stage to share with a large audience of students what it means to be a leader, while revealing personal stories that shaped his career.

Khaldoon said: “One of the biggest leadership lessons I’ve learned from H.H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan is that as people, we are responsible for helping our community. So when a person is in need, help when you can or at least try.”

100 Mentors kicked off in 2016 with a mission to create direct ties between nominated mentors and Emirati students.

Each session is broken down into three parts:  Storytelling, Coffee-Chat and Secret Recipe. Different skills are discussed in each session, such as creative thinking and leadership, in order to inspire the next generation of working youth.

Khaldoon Al Mubarak, highlighted the importance of doing what you enjoy and not to be afraid to make mistakes and take chances.

“If you want to succeed, get into a field that you enjoy. You may make some mistakes on the way, but that’s okay. Keep trying until you find what you’re passionate about.”
