Under the patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain, the Bahrain Institute for Banking & Finance (BIBF) held a one-day virtual forum, Achieving Excellence in a Pandemic, powered by Batelco, on June 24. With the attendance of more than 350 executives and business professionals from various sectors around the world, the forum provided an outlook on COVID-19 from a national and global perspective, as well as shed light on how to overcome challenges and attain business continuity. This initiative was launched in alignment with national efforts to support organisations during the COVID-19 pandemic, with a main aim of providing continuous education and training support to the business community. The forum provided an interactive and stimulating learning experience ranging from keynote sessions, expert panel discussions, and specialised parallel training workshops, where participants got the opportunity to select the breakout session of their interest that met their requirements, and were encouraged to discuss, share their experiences, and ask questions.
