MYNM and MINI support 100 km walk for World Diabetes Day

Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors (MYNM), MINI’s official importer in Saudi Arabia, supported Ameer Al-Rimawai, founder of Backpackers Social Enterprise, a charitable organization, on his 100 km plus walk from Jeddah to Thuwal in support of World Diabetes Day.
The MINI countryman accompanied Ameer on his two-day journey to raise awareness of the dangers of diabetes in the Kingdom as part of the global awareness drive. Diabetes is one of the causes that Ameer supports through his foundation. The foundation helps local communities to raise awareness of various illnesses. Diabetes affects 7.8 percent among the people of 25-34 ages and 50.4 percent of 65+ ages, according to the Saudi Health Information Survey Handbook published in 2013.
MYNM MD Stavros Paraskevaides said: “Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors has a duty to the community that has helped us grow and become the organization we are today. We do this by supporting great initiatives like Ameer Mohammed’s 100 km walk for World Diabetes Day. MINI is our partner in this campaign as we feel it holds the same values and is a brand that loves and celebrates life. We will continue to support projects that benefit our community.”
MYNM says it places a high value on CSR and consistently strives to support events in the larger community and society. In 2014, the MINI importer helped raise funds for the Down Syndrome Foundation (SAUT) in Saudi Arabia. In the same year, support was given to the National Home Health Care Foundation which aims to develop and spread home health care services throughout the Western Province by improving social and health awareness in the society.

This professional qualification will develop core management skills, and enable aspiring leaders to acquire globally recognized accreditation.

Launching as a public course in February, the Level 5 diploma in management and leadership is designed to give participants the skills and competencies needed to become an effective manager. Live online training will be delivered through a flexible, bite-sized modular program over a one-year period. Upon completion, participants will be one step closer to CMI’s prestigious Chartered Manager status.

Amanda Line, partner at PwC’s Academy, said: “Leadership is required in all areas of an organization, no matter the industry, to set direction and unlock the greatest potential in teams. The CMI qualification not only equips participants with cross-functional management skills that form the building blocks of leadership, the fact that this is a globally recognized accreditation adds confidence to both participants and companies.”

The Level 5 diploma covers core subjects including finance management, project management, planning and procuring, and the principles of management and leadership. Participants can continue to progress through the CMI qualification by earning an award, certificate or diploma, depending on their professional goals.

PwC’s Academy will also offer Level 3 and Level 7 CMI qualifications as in-house training for organizations across the Middle East.

Winston Jacob, head of employer and partner provider relations at CMI, said: “Our mission at CMI is, and has been for the past 70 years, to raise the quality and standard of management in the workplace. We are delighted to partner with PwC’s Academy in the Middle East to offer a number of our globally recognized qualifications, and at a time that has never been more critical for the development of our future leaders.”
