Khaleejesque and GUST (Gulf University of Science and Technology) have partnered up to develop Upgrade, a program with the most interesting, and experienced, people in the fields of media, marketing, and public relations in Kuwait to help give you an edge over your peers and excel in your personal and professional careers. Did we mention that all the workshops are certified? 

Whether you're a young professional, student, or business owner, you always need to find the time to develop yourself by learning new skills or brushing up on your old ones. And with the creative industry on the rise in the Middle East region, we felt it's a crucial time to develop budding talent and give them the skills to be ready to face the competitive business landscape.
