On behalf of the board of directors and members of Omani Society for Human Resource for Management (OSHRM), I would like to welcome you to the 46th IFTDO World conference & exhibition to be held in the year 2017 for the first time
in the Sultanate of Oman.  The theme of the conference is “Organisational Transformation Beyond 2020.”  We selected this theme due to the importance of organizational transformation and the serious paradigm shifting which many organizations are currently undergoing and we expect this will continue beyond 2020.
I would like to urge all of you and your organizations to take maximum advantage of the opportunity to use our conference as a source of professional development as well as to taste Omani Hospitality and view the Oman culture.

Oman›s history tells stories of heroism, courage, wisdom, patriotism, love and devotion to homeland. This brings us closer to understanding the richness of the Omani cultural experience which has contributed to the building of modern Oman.
