DP World is a leading enabler of global trade and an integral part of the supply chain. We operate multiple yet related businesses – from marine and inland terminals, maritime services, logistics and ancillary services to technology-driven trade solutions.

They have a portfolio of 78 operating marine and inland terminals supported by over 50 related businesses in over 40 countries across six continents with a significant presence in both high-growth and mature markets. They aim to be essential to the bright future of global trade, ensuring everything we do has a long-lasting positive impact on economies and society.

Talent in the Middle East is in short supply and DP World was painfully aware of the need to develop its next generation of homegrown leaders. The organization wanted these leaders to be exposed to the difficulties of a complex world – not shielded in a classroom on an academic campus – so they could become sophisticated global leaders just like their Fortune 50 clients and peers. A variety of learning methods were employed to accomplish this goal and help participants reach outcomes that include:

•    Strategies for leveraging large quantities of data to make effective decisions
•    An enhanced ability to make strategic decisions in a global economic context
•    Clarification of what each manager stands for as a leader, the leadership point of view,
and uniqueness
•    Increased capacity to communicate the DP World vision and strategy effectively
•    The social finesse needed to push others out of their comfort zone to bring out their best

The programme has had a profound impact on the lives of the participants and, in the words of the Vice President of Human Resources at DP World, “we expected the WOW factor, but we never expected that our executives would come back transformed.”
