Young professionals from the E&P business line in Saudi Aramco worked with the company's E&P Continuing Excellence Dept. to organize the first E&P Young Professionals' Forum, held in February. The forum was designed to increase awareness of corporate and E&P strategic imperatives; motivate young professionals through sharing success stories, achievements, and lessons learned; establish networking opportunities; and amass ideas for improving the professional development program. The forum was a great success and gave young professionals a rich opportunity to network with their peers and senior management. Organizers decided to hold such a forum three to four times a year. The forum was attended by 43 young professionals from the six E&P administrative areas of the company.
