UAE-based NAMA Women Advancement Establishment (NAMA) has added a new professional training course on its e-learning platform Badiri E-Academy to take entrepreneurs through a step-by-step journey of transforming a problem-oriented approach to a solution-driven mindset.

Titled ‘Innovation and Problem-Solving in Uncertainty’, the 130-minute course was launched as a digital workshop on April 9 in line with Badiri’s commitment to ensure continued access to knowledge and professional training for organisations, entrepreneurs and business leaders to stay competitive in today’s challenging global market place.

Held in partnership with Sharjah Business Women Council (SBWC) and IMPACTJUNKIE, the webinar offered women entrepreneurs from the United Arab Emirates, Belize, Guatemala, Mexico, Tanzania, and the United States of America, an insight into the critical combination of entrepreneurial tools required to leverage and build innovative products and services that can generate revenue and impact lives in need.

Philip Harding, CEO and Co-founder of IMPACTJUNKIE, led the digital workshop, informing participants how to combine these tools and use them effectively to understand big needs and launch innovative solutions to solve the biggest problems confronting the world today, especially in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
