In his opening note addressing the students Vodafone’s COO Mr. Mohamed Al Sadah said “I am honoured to be here representing Vodafone at this gathering that brings together the future leaders of our great nation. Vodafone is of one the world’s largest telecommunications companies and are also a British Company that is very proud to be operating successfully in Qatar so the support of events such as today’s is a natural fit for us.

“Vodafone Qatar’s priority is to help realise the Qatar National Vision 2030 by building a world class telecommunications infrastructure and to do whatever we can do to support in the areas of human development specifically the youth of Qatar. Across our operating companies spanning the globe we have many initiatives and programmes that support and empower youth.  We understand the youth and go to where they are.” Al Sadah concluded by saying that for Qatar to continue prospering a strong ICT environment would be fundamental that is overseen by highly talented professionals. He urged the students to pursue education and careers in this field with the hope of welcoming some of them to the Vodafone family.
