The Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies will host a symposium under the theme of ‘Leadership and Resilience in Emergency Management’ on 20 September. The public event, which will be held from 11am – 1pm at Georgetown University in Qatar’s Education City campus, will celebrate the launch of the University’s new regionally focused Executive Master’s in Emergency and Disaster Management degree.

The keynote address at the symposium will be given by H.E. Dr Mohammed bin Saleh Al Sada, Minister of Energy and Industry for Qatar. There will also be a panel discussion with industry experts including: John Galt, country emergency and security manager for Qatar Shell; Dominic Genetti, vice president and joint interest manager at ExxonMobil Qatar; and Khalid Al Hashmi, assistant undersecretary for cybersecurity at the Ministry of Transportation and Communication.

The symposium will form part of the first of five residency sessions for the inaugural class of the regionally focused Executive Master’s in Emergency and Disaster Management degree.
