Mr Abdallah S. Jum'ah, former president and CEO of the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) will speak to an audience of alumni, friends, staff and students at Manchester Business School on Tuesday 12 May at 5.30pm.

Under his leadership, the company also refocused its strategic direction, to maintain its prominent position as the world’s premier energy supplier.

In 2003 Mr Jum'ah was identified by Fortune magazine as one of the most influential business people in the world, and in January 2005, he was appointed energy community leader by the World Economic Forum. In November 2007 the Financial Times' "Who’s Who: Ten Top Powers To Be Reckoned with" to ranked Mr Jum'ah as the top man in the oil industry.

Mr Jum'ah's lecture, The state of the global oil industry: Reflections from the former CEO of Saudi Aramco, will begin at 5.30pm in G6, MBS West.
