Barwa Bank hosts motivational workshop with North Pole explorer

Doha, February 19, 2012 - Barwa Bank, Qatar's fastest growing shari’ah compliant banking service provider, hosted Nabil Al Busaidi, the first Arab to walk to the magnetic North Pole, yesterday at a motivational workshop facilitated by consultants of Art of Abundant Living, for Barwa Bank, Retail Banking employees at the bank’s West Bay branch.

Barwa Bank staff were given the unique opportunity to hear Nabil speak on his gruelling expedition, as the 39 year-old and his team mates walked more than 650km to reach the magnetic North pole, in order to draw their own personal outcomes and inspiration from it.

Nabil shared his individual challenges, his courage, ambition and motivation; detailing his toughest trials, including dealing with frost bite in temperatures as cold as -40 degrees Celsius. He then went onto discuss the lessons he has learnt from these hostile environments and how these have been directly applied in normal life. Art of Abundant
