TF1 Foundation’s visit was part of a broader trip to Qatar, where students learnt more about the country and its efforts in the Road to Qatar 2022, as well as the media and broadcast industry.
Qatar-based broadcast network beIN Media Group opened its doors to students from the TF1 Foundation, the charitable arm of the TF1 Group, one of France’s largest media holding companies. The foundation supports those aged 12 to 30 from the country’s deprived areas.
During their visit to beIN’s Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Headquarters in Qatar, students were welcomed by Duncan Walkinshaw, Director of Programs at beIN MENA, and Didier Domi, former French footballer turned beIN SPORTS Commentator. The pair took students on a tour of beIN’s studios and discussed the broadcaster’s preparations for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
Commenting on the visit, Walkinshaw stated: “We were thrilled to welcome students from TF1 Foundation at our world-class complex in Qatar and have the opportunity to relay some of the inner workings of a leading global broadcaster. Through these educational tours, we are able to truly inspire the next generation of media professionals and support the industry’s future leaders”.
