The magazine starts off with an interesting 'Welcome' message by Shaikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, and Chancellor of the HCT, in which the Minister has congratulated local companies, ranging from multinational corporations and large government offices, to smaller, entrepreneurial businesses, for helping the government fulfill its national mission of emiratisation. Shaikh Nahayan hoped that some of the success stories in the magazine and its subsequent issues, would encourage many more companies and institutions to increase and broaden the employment and workplace training opportunities for all HCT students.

HCT's Vice Chancellor Jim Horton, who joined the HCT system at the beginning of the year has attempted to shed light on several issues - including the HCT's goal of community partnerships, the overhauling of its 'qualifications and pathways', the emphasis on continuing education tailored to the needs of the industry, and its accent on lifelong learning, as well as Shaikh Nahayan's priority in securing institutional accreditation for the HCT, as for instance his pursuing candidacy with the US Southern Association of Colleges.
