This year, and on the 1st of November, 2016, Sultan Qaboos University launched a new program called "Engagement" where 6 selected academics from SQU where invited to address hundreds of parents of new SQU
and engage with them in a dynamic forum discussing different topics of importance to them as parents of students at SQU.
I thoroughly enjoyed engaging with the parents at this event where my talk "Life at University" focused on 3 main points.
1) Building confidence
2) Acquiring skills
3) Aiming big and aspiring high
It was a different experience addressing parents rather than students this time :-) !
