Welcome to the 2017 Edition of the BBBF Directory I hope that you find this directory, which is a comprehensive list of our members, a useful networking tool as a supplement to our website, [www.bbbforum.org], which provides an excellent platform for members to locate other members and for members to reach potential business partners and clients. The directory also travels overseas with copies being made available to visiting British trade missions and other British Business Groups throughout the Gulf, and the Arab British Chamber of Commerce, based in London. Today the BBBF is an integral contributor to the great relationship between Bahrain and the UK, since it formed in 1995 to promote trade relations between UK and Bahrain as well as promoting Bahrain as a regional hub to do business. The special business relationship and close friendship that Bahrain and Britain have forged over hundreds of years serves both islands in good stead as we seek to undertake more business with each other in 2018 and future years to come. We continue to enjoy an excellent working relationship with the British Embassy and the Department of Trade & Investment teams. We are sure that H.E. Ambassador, Simon MartinÂ’s dynamic commercial team will continue to support us through a rewarding partnership in the numerous business networking activities that we organise. We are also very fortunate to have permanent British Embassy representation on our 4

Committee, to ensure that we develop synergies, capitalise areas of mutual interest, connect visiting trade delegates to the right people during their stay, and follow-up tangible opportunities We are encouraged that the UK government continues with a key focus on the Bahrain market in particular and that the Gulf generally remains pivotal to this ambitious growth strategy. It is clear that Bahrain is ideally placed to capitalise on this economic renaissance, with our geographic advantages linking us to Saudi Arabia by causeway, logistics hubs, regional cost competitiveness and most importantly a diverse, deeply skilled and entrepreneurial workforce. The rise in interest continues from Bahraini companies interested in forging partnerships and joint ventures to harness British industrial expertise and technical know-how. This year we had some very high profile visits from the UK. In July we were very honoured to have one of Britain’s most prominent and philanthropic Royal Family members, His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent, the first cousin of Her Majesty The Queen visit Bahrain. In October we had The Red Arrows visible and dynamic display. Their tour is an example of a global Britain that is open for business. In December we saw a visit from the UK Minister of State for the Middle East Rt Hon Alistair Burt MP, who emphasized how important Britain and the Gulf region are to each other – how there are


From the Chair

huge opportunities for British businesses in Bahrain and in the region, and how we can work together - ever strengthening the collaboration between our two nations from both a commercial aspect as well as friendship. As we move in to 2018 the demand continues to grow and it is pleasing to also see such a large number of British companies seeking to do business in Bahrain and the wider GCC marketplace. We are also pleased to see increasing numbers of young professionals, both British and Bahraini alike, joining the Forum. With this next generation, the strong relationship between Bahrain and Britain will continue to grow in strength over the years to come. A special mention to our sponsors, who continue to be a great source of financial support and generous encouragement. Their support allows us the financial security to increase the number and quality of events that we organise for your benefit and enjoyment. I would also like to thank all the BBBF Committee and Special Interest Group (SIG) Leaders and the BBBF Executive office for their tremendous support and hard work during 2017. This year saw the SIG very active in organising additional networking events with very high profile speakers addressing the Forum, who shared with us a wealth of interesting and dynamic topics. Our SIGÂ’s

continue to drive forward offering our members and guests a valuable medium for exchanging industry specific ideas. To cater for our ever growing and increasingly diverse membership, and in addition to our regular monthly lunches and dinner functions of knowledge and ideas that we may leverage within our own businesses. We are delighted that our membership continues to grow. This is a strong reflection of the interest and deep understanding, friendship and business interests and opportunities that exist between Britain and Bahrain. We always welcome hearing ways that we can serve you and make the Bahrain-British business community better in the future, so please do let us know and we welcome your feedback. We are all very proud to serve our members and I am deeply honoured to have the opportunity to represent you as Chairman. We wish each and every one of our members and your respective organisations a very successful and profitable 2018, and we look forward to seeing you, and your guests, at forthcoming BBBF events. Best wishes

Khalid Al Zayani OBE Chairman 5


Ambassador's Foreword Welcome to the 2018 edition of the BBBF Directory As we enter the 202nd year of bilateral relations between the UK and Bahrain, the relationship has gone from strength to strength. This year has been as busy as ever for the Embassy, particularly in trade and investment between our two countries. This has included changes within the British government. 2017 has marked the first full year of the newly created Department for International Trade (DIT). Previously known as UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), a full government department was created to focus on the vital areas of trade and investment after the UK’s decision to exit from the European Union in June 2016. We are supported by four DIT colleagues in the Embassy who scope out export and investment opportunities for UK and Bahraini companies while working closely with the BBBF, EDB, the British business community, a global network of UK Embassies, and specialist sector teams in London. An excellent example of the DIT offer is UK Export Finance, the UK’s export crediting agency. It provides, on very favourable terms, UK government financial support for export deals: only 20% of the company is required to be based in the UK. It was good to welcome Vomic Shah (Regional Head for Business Development) to present on this at a BBBF lunch in May. To return to the B-word, the second BBBF Brexit round-table discussion took place in October at the Capital Club. I very much enjoyed exchanging views with a highly engaged audience and my co- panellists, Khalid Al Zayani, Patrick Gearon, Stephen Watson and Nick Maclean and chairperson Paula Boast. I look forward to the next one in Spring 2018. As ever, Bahrain continues to draw high-profile visitors. As I write this, we have just finished hosting the new Secretary of State for Defence, Gavin Williamson and the Minister of State for the Middle East and North Africa, Alistair Burt, at the Manama

Dialogue. This is another example of the importance of the UK-Bahrain relationship, and a demonstration of the UK’s commitment to regional security and prosperity. We have also been honoured to host HRH Price Michael of Kent. In November, Jersey’s Chief Minister, Ian Gorst’s visit focused on financial and professional services, telecoms, and technology. DIT’s Technology and Smart Cities Team also came in November to scope out opportunities for UK companies, attracted by Bahrain’s ambitious plans to be a technology hub for the region and the exciting announcement of Amazon Web Services that they will be basing their Middle East cloud services here. I’m pleased to say our colleagues recognised the huge potential in Bahrain and would like the Bahrain DIT Team to lead on a regional campaign that matches UK companies with opportunities in overseas markets. The array of high profile events continued late into the year, with the spectacular Red Arrows display in October, with an estimated 7,000 people watching the aerobatics across the country. I was delighted to host over 250 VIPs at the Welcome to GREAT Britain and Northern Ireland Reception, which promoted UK business in Bahrain and trade ties with the Kingdom. The event was supported by Standard Chartered Bank, BAE Systems and McLaren Automotive, who provided a stunning GREAT branded 570s. The Reds also gave a hugely engaging talk at a BBBF lunch, with a focus on their experiences of promoting the UK around the world. Female members of the Read Arrows Team attended a lunch for the newly created BBBF’s Women in Business SIG.

Indeed, BBBF members have been behind a number of successful initiatives in 2017. McLaren opened its brand new, state of the art showroom and impressive after-sales facility in Tubli in late October. Meanwhile, 2017 marks 50 years of Mott McDonald’s presence in Bahrain and are currently providing the new EWA 400KW power grid. Charles Russell Speechlys received an Honourable Mention for Law Firm of the Year at The Oath Middle East Awards 2017 and opened their Dubai office in July. Atkins is currently overseeing the construction of the new Cardiology Centre in Awali, demonstrating the confidence in UK expertise for key projects in the Kingdom. In January, Savills Bahrain successfully sold the stalled Juffair Views development to Ramee Group for BD 3.6 million. In November, Sophie and I hosted a UK buy-to-let investment evening with Cluttons introducing Bahraini investors to the healthy rental yield available in the north of England with the Manchester Blackfriars development. Education has always been an area of strong UKBahrain collaboration and 2017 was no exception, with the Higher Education Academy establishing its first ever global partnership agreement with the University of Bahrain in May. One in every 500 Bahrainis currently study in the UK and I was delighted to host some of the 46 MBA graduates from the University of Strathclyde in partnership with the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance at a St Andrews Day celebration in November. In Wales in February, Cardiff Metropolitan University, supported by DIT, signed its partnership agreement with the Applied Sciences University (ASU) to deliver two undergraduate courses in the field of business in Bahrain. A number of universities in the UK have also announced exciting programmes with Bahraini institutions. The ASU’s new College of Engineering in collaboration with London South Bank University will open for admissions this September, delivering

8

five joint engineering programmes. In the field of Energy, Water and Food Security the Universities of Oxford, Aston and Loughborough with the University of Bahrain announced three major joint research initiatives. Meanwhile, the British Council and BAE Systems’ project encouraging young students to pursue careers in STEM is now in its fourth year. So far they have engaged with 3,500 students in Bahrain. UK-Bahrain defence ties are also stronger than ever. In 2018, we look forward to the official handover of HMS Juffair, the UK Naval Support Facility in Bahrain. It was an honour to host His Excellency, Sh. Khalid Bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, the Foreign Minister, and three Chelsea Pensioners at the wreath-laying Remembrance Ceremony at the Embassy in November. Many thanks yet again to the BBBF for their contribution to Remembrance Week and another fantastic Poppy Ball. What else lies ahead in 2018? We hope to see more details announced about the second causeway road and rail project. DIT Bahrain is ready to support any UK companies bidding and continues to support capacity building for the Bahraini Government in Public Private Partnerships. With progress being made in negotiations with Brussels, I look forward to discussing with the BBBF and other partners what this means for UK trade and investment both in the region and globally. We bid a fond farewell to departing DIT Heads Christian Syme who left in October and Margot Arthur who has led the team in the interim. We look forward to welcoming Mohamed Ismail, our new Head of Trade and Investment for DIT Bahrain, starting in January. Mohamed comes with a wealth of experience, including from the Business Sweden Office in Riyadh. With another busy year behind us, I wish to thank the BBBF Committee, Special Interest Groups, the BBBF Secretariat and the members for your invaluable contribution to UK-Bahrain relations.

Special Interest Groups

Mark Gravener SIG Chair

The Special Interest Groups (SIG’s) are a set of industry focused or category related sub groups, from the main forum. Their aim is to highlight the opportunities in Bahrain’s economic diversification plan and Britain’s ambitions for export growth (be those products, services or talent) and assist existing and potential BBBF members in securing a larger share of these. Additionally the SIG’s provide the space for members and their guests to meet more frequently and explore issues of concern to them, find ways together with the respective authorities and organisations to make doing business between Britain and Bahrain that much easier. Typically each SIG meets four times per year for workshops, networking, and seminars or to hear from interesting speakers on current subjects, relevant to their sectors. They also provide an outreach to business in the local community, connecting valuable expertise, manufacturers or services of benefit to each and between both countries and a conduit for the same in the United Kingdom.

Currently there are 9 SIG’s, with new ones under constant review and evaluation. Our SIG Heads provide their time voluntarily and welcome the support and feedback of the BBBF’s wider membership. How can you get involved? •

Come along and support a meeting even if it is not directly connected to your industry and bring a guest.

•

Suggest ideas for an event or activity you think would be of value.

•

If you have a strong interest in a business sector, have the passion and energy to start a group, let us know.

•

If you are a technical expert or have valuable and timely information to share, contact the relevant SIG Head.

Have other suggestions for improvements we can make, contact any of our team or the Committee

From the BBBF Executive Office Supporting business in Bahrain since 1995 Welcome to the 2018 edition of the BBBF Directory. This who’s who book has proved to be very valuable not only to our members but also to British businesses and Trade missions visiting Bahrain. The 2018 edition of the Directory can also be found on our website where members can access their own details online with interactive pages to input information and also post newsworthy articles about their companies. Our “BBBF Facebook page” is proving ever to be very popular amongst our members, encouraging more businesses to be pro active using “social media”. Watch this space in 2018 as we move forward with our Dena Wales Executive Manager website, social media and digital marketing strategies to optimise communication and improve our services to our members. Last year we saw ourselves with a lot more activity with very high profile speakers addressing the forum at our meetings and events. Also we saw our special interest groups (SIG) increased and doubled their meetings from the previous year. These groups continue to go from strength to strength and are an integral component of the BBBF. 2018 promises to be a good year for business. We kick off our first event of the year with our “Welcome Back to Business in 2018” Monthly Business Networking lunch meeting on the Tuesday 23rd January. Throughout 2018 we have lined up a host of Business Lunch meetings, SIG Meetings and Events including our popular annual social events - Curry Night, Golf Day and Poppy Ball. These meetings and events offer a great opportunity to meet “face to face” with others in your respective field and also with other businesses sectors. The BBBF provides, through these, a platform for networking and Sanne Smith Executive Assistant exchange of useful business leads and opportunities amongst our members and their guests. Full details of the 2018 diary dates can be found on the BBBF website: www.bbbforum.org Our membership ranges from SME’s to large corporate businesses and in 2017 we saw a continuous influx of new members join the BBBF in all categories. The BBBF Executive office is there to support members. We continuously strive to improve our services and to help members make the most of business networking. Please do not hesitate to contact the office or the committee. Your feedback is most valuable to us. We would like to thank all our members, partners and sponsors for their support throughout last year. Also, the British Embassy and the Department of International Trade Team for their continuous partnership with the BBBF and their support to our members and we look forward to working alongside them in assisting businesses in Bahrain in 2018. Best Wishes Alison Norbury Dena Wales Executive Assistant Executive Manager 19

THE BBBF MAGAZINE IS YOUR MAGAZINE

Dear BBBF Member,

We are striving to keep each edition of the Forum Magazine up-to-date with current news and events and would be very pleased to receive your Press Releases, with or without pictures, of any new developments within your company, whether it be a promotion, an expansion, a new product or a special event. Please note items sent in must be newsworthy; any material that is simply an attempt to place free advertising will not be printed. Here are three TOP TIPS for getting your press release included. 1) Have A Story To Tell You must have a story to tell, a hook, or an interesting angle. Whilst demand for news is great, the news must still be interesting. So, find your story and develop it. Whilst you try and do this, make sure you think about the following: u u u u

event tie-in articles socially important editorial tie-in articles innovations and developments or unique products unusual events or unique personal accomplishments

2) Think Like a Journalist u

u

u

3) Keep Your Press Release Short! With so much to consider when writing a press release it’s not surprising that most people write too much copy. It doesn’t matter how well you have written your press release, if it’s too long then it won’t get read. So keep your press release short. Remove words that do not need to be there. Not convinced? Ask yourself these questions: u

u

2) Keep it simple Don't mess around with fancy fonts, inappropriate attempts to emphasise with I t a l i c s o r s p a c i n g variations, you're only giving the editior more work to do to turn it into something he wants to include instead of an excuse to ignore it...

So what reasons would an editor want to publish your news? What benefits would their readers get? Is it relevant and timely? Ideally, make the main benefit of your press release the headline. Or try and answer at least three of the classic five Ws -- who, what, when, where and why -- for your publicity angle in the headline. If you do not come up with a compelling headline then the editor may simply not read any further.

u

How many of these press releases do you think editors get to read for every publication? How many long, badly-worded releases will they read before, eventually, they become instantly put off just by the length of a press release? And how much more likely do you think it is that an editor will read your SHORT, quick-to-read, press release?

Understand now? Keep your press release short, simple as that! 45

Company Profile Delmon Readymix is Bahrain’s leading Readymix Concrete Company. Established in 1973, Delmon Readymix was originally established by Abdulla Ahmed Nass as Bahrain’s first producer of concrete. Since then the Company has developed a reputation for the highest standard of product quality, professionalism and superior service as a key player in the construction of Bahrain’s modern skyline; having produced well over 8 million cubic meters of top quality concrete. Throughout the 1980’s, 1990’s and early 2000’s the business benefited from partnerships with first Tarmac, then Redland and later Lafarge International, all leading European based international building material companies. In-depth local knowledge, combined with international expertise, enables Delmon Readymix to utilise the latest product and equipment technology available in the industry while understanding the local markets’ unique needs. Operating from sites at Salmabad, Hidd and North Alba the total achievable output of the Company’s 10 concrete plants is 860 cubic metres of concrete per hour. With a fleet of over 80 truck mixers and 23 concrete pumps, the company has a capacity to supply in excess of 75,000 cubic metres of concrete per month, thus ensuring an adequate supply of concrete for all customer requirements.

Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al-Khalifa, Chairman of the State council, announced Bahrain’s complete independence on behalf of H.H. the late Shaikh Isa bin Salman Al-Khalifa, on 14 August 1971. The decree defined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ duties and responsibilities in terms of coordinating and implementing all matters related to the nation’s foreign policy, and its international relations with other countries and international organizations, in addition to protecting the interests of Bahraini citizens abroad.

The transformation of the business will surely follow as a direct consequence.” Mission of SSG is to optimise the available human potential and resources by solution-orientated communication and action; commitment is to create sustainable change and more successful cooperation by continuous improvement; the values of SSG are: Win/Win; Respect; Economically Justified One of the main objectives for most of our clients is to create sustainable synergy and alignment within and between departments of their organisations. Core of the SSG service is needs analysis driven by responses from individual confidential interviews with the participants in any programmes, be they strategic brainstorming with board level personnel, senior management or specific training for different levels of staff in the company. These individual confidential interviews lead to customised coaching given the needs of the organisation and the participants in the work - from leadership capabilities, training management skills, aligning individuals and departments with each other, helping people and departments to realise just how interdependent they are with people in other departments - or other specific coaching or training needed in the business. Very people-centric analysis, facilitating, coaching and training unlocking the best out of human and social capital is central to the work: analysis, intervention with active implementation.
