31/08/2011


London, United Kingdom (01 September 2011) - AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has sent two of its up-and-coming engineers to the One Young World summit in Geneva, Switzerland.

Matanat Charkazova and Orkhan Asgar-zada, based in AMEC's  oil and gas business in Baku, Azerbaijan, are attending the gathering, held between 1-4 September, to help develop their leadership skills and continue their professional development.

"AMEC operates in highly skilled industries for some of the world's leading organisations and we rely on talented, motivated and well-informed employees for our success," said François-Philippe Champagne, AMEC's strategic development director. "We fully support the professional and personal development of our employees and the One Young World summit will be a valuable learning experience for Matanat and Orkhan. They will share their learning with colleagues and lead by example on their return.

"This is only one of many career and personal development initiatives underway at AMEC to attract and retain the best talent in the engineering sector, both for their benefit and that of our business and customers."

Often called The Young People's Davos, the summit is a major global forum for young people of leadership calibre. It brings together the brightest and best young people from around the world and gives them a platform to debate global issues, including business.

One Young World has six key 'impact areas': The Environment and its protection, Interfaith Dialogue, The Role of Global Business, Developing Global Leadership, the Media and its changing influence and World Health.

Distinguished counsellors attending the summit are Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Bob Geldof and Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, who were all instrumental in the inaugural event held in 2010.
