July 18, 2018:   More than 20 senior leaders from Bank Al Bilad recently participated in an Ashridge Executive Education Leadership Development Program in Riyadh. With a focus on building 21st Century Leadership capabilities, this highly experiential and practical learning approach helped leaders communicate their strategic vision, set direction and develop high performing teams to succeed within the dynamic and fast moving Saudi banking sector.

With over 20 years of experience in developing regional business leaders, Ashridge delivered a highly customized program, designed not only to address the specific challenges facing the Bank’s leaders today, but also to unlock the emerging opportunities in the future.

Mr. Haitham Al-Medainy, General Manager of Bank Al Bilad, said: “Banking executives must constantly evolve their strategic platforms to keep pace with emerging challenges. In our sector, change is constant- from changing regulations to economic movements; and our leaders need to be prepared to tackle these issues with a focus on organizational leadership. The Ashridge program combined leadership development with strategic thinking and gave them hands-on development in solving their daily business challenges.”

The program was led by Ashridge’s international faculty team of Colin Williams and Tony MacRae. They said: “This was an exciting collaborative partnership with Bank Al Bilad, and a great opportunity to engage with and develop the bank’s leaders around their essential leadership and strategic capabilities necessary to successfully compete in today’s complex and challenging marketplace.”
