Highfield MEA Director Rebecca Sprenger had the honour recently of meeting with one of the United Arab Emirates most important dignitaries, Sheik Nahyan bin Mubarak.
The meeting, which took place earlier this year, was to discuss training and education across the UAE in general, as well as Highfield MEA’s role in helping to upskill the workforce of the Middle East in terms of food safety and in particular, the Person in Charge programme in Dubai.
Rebecca met the Sheik, who heads the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Social Development in the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi. The Sheik, who is the son of Mohammed bin Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, is also Chairman of the Centre of Excellence for Applied Research and Training (CERT), the commercial arm of the Higher Colleges of Technology, and has been the sponsor of the Emirates Natural History Group for a number of years.
Rebecca said, ‘It was a great honour to meet the Sheikh and have the opportunity to talk with him. He has done an incredible amount of work over the years for the UAE, particularly in terms of skills and development, so it was a great opportunity to discuss that with him. He is also keen on improving the education of young people across all of the UAE, providing them with vital life skills such as first aid, food safety and health and safety’.
