Bank Muscat reiterates support to innovation at TEDxQurum event

Muscat: Bank Muscat, the flagship financial services provider in the Sultanate, in step with its ‘Let’s Do More’ vision and commitment to partnership in innovation and sustainable development of Oman, extended support and participated in the TEDxQurum event.
Aimed at igniting innovation in the country through imaginative interaction between participants, the event evoked a strong response from all segments of society.
Addressing the audience, Abdulnasir Al Raisi, DGM – Premier Banking, said: “Bank Muscat, which marks the 35th anniversary this year, views the partnership with TEDxQurm an earnest attempt to unite people in the pursuit of innovation, development and discovering the joy of being connected. The bank is committed to playing a prominent role in the development of Omani talent and improving their skills and expertise and reaches out to encourage innovation, especially entrepreneurial initiatives by youth.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a programme of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
The TEDxQurum event was marked by brilliant speakers, thought-provoking videos and inspiring conversation. TED is a non-partisan non-profit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 110 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
Bank Muscat is proud to have set a trail of innovative banking services, products and facilities that meet the requirements of customers. Setting new benchmarks, the sophisticated banking experience at Bank Muscat stems from the right mix of traditional and electronic channels.
Leading by example is the forte of Bank Muscat, making lasting contributions to society and the nation. The CSR and sustainability strategy pursued by Bank Muscat is focused on delivering long-term benefits to the community and the nation.
