On August 19th, 2022, NCIE had the pleasure to welcome Mr. Raffi Baghdjian, the Advisor to Foundations and Former Shell Executive.
Mr. Baghdjian shared his experience covering the energy business's commercial, technical, and leadership aspects with Shell for over 35 years. He gave examples of his expertise and undeniable professional success in cultural navigation, deal-making, and strategic leadership in more than ten countries.
The CEO of NCIE, Hayk Margarian, presented to him the two main functions that NCIE is working on Technology Transfer Office and Business support programs, along with our efforts of co-organizing events and partnerships. Mr. Baghdjian is the perfect example of how people should give back to society by using all they have learned from leading different positions around the globe. He is currently the Advisor of the Center for Scientific Innovation and Education Foundation and other Foundations in Armenia. Achieving tangible socio-economic development results has always been challenging in Armenia but worth taking the initiative.
Mr. Raffi Baghdjian and Hayk Margarian explored opportunities to build and find mutually beneficial deals for Armenia, NCIE, and the organizations he's leading. It was very motivating for the NCIE team to see Diaspora-Armenian top executives and professionals coming back to Armenia, believing and acting for the future of our Homeland.
