//// Meirc’s Ownership
Meirc is owned by its current executives and senior consultants.

This deliberate decision about ownership was made in order to continue to attract, motivate, and retain the very best talent.

• Leadership and Management • Interpersonal Skills and Self Development • Communication Skills • Business Writing • Human Resources Management • Training and Development • Customer Service

The programs usually comprise briefings by Meirc senior consultants, reviews of manuals, reports and other data, as well as supervised exercises and structured discussions. ITPs may last from one week to three months, depending on individual and organizational needs, and may be conducted in English and/or Arabic.
