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. 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. Last year marked a milestone in history as we celebrated the 200 year anniversary of the bilateral relationship between Bahrain and Britain. It was good to see so many forum members enthusiastically taking part in activities and events throughout the year. In November we were very honoured to have a Royal visit from HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales and HRH Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall. In December we saw a visit from the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, & the Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, who emphasized how important Britain and the Gulf region are to each other – how there are 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. We continue to enjoy an excellent working relationship with the British Embassy and the United Kingdom Trade & Investment teams. We are sure that H.E. Ambassador, Simon Martin’s dynamic commercial team will continue to support us through a rewarding 4

partnership in the numerous business networking activities that we organise. We are also very fortunate to have permanent British Embassy representation on our 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. The special business relationship and close friendship that Bahrain and Britain have forged over hundreds of years will serve both islands in good stead, as we seek to undertake more business with each other as reiterated by the British Embassy and Department of International Trade. The rise in interest continues from Bahraini companies interested in forging partnerships and joint ventures to harness British industrial expertise and technical know-how. 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. As we move in to 2017 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


From the Chair

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. As a supplement to our website, [www.bbbforum.org], the annual membersÂ’ directory has an important role to play. With a distribution of over 1,500 copies, the directory provides an excellent platform for members to locate other members and for members to reach potential business partners and clients. The directory can be found in the British Embassy in Bahrain, business centres of all 5 star hotels in Bahrain, in lounges of Bahrain International Airport and on the desks of senior executives in both the public and private sectors here in Bahrain. The directory also travels overseas with copies being made available to visiting British trade missions and other British Business Groups throughout the Gulf, the Middle East Association, and the Arab British Chamber of Commerce, based in London. A special mention also 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 for their tremendous support and hard work during 2016.

To cater for our ever growing and increasingly diverse membership, and in addition to our regular monthly lunches and dinner functions, the SIGs have been very active in organising additional networking events throughout 2016. We have been very fortunate to have been addressed by some very interesting and dynamic speakers who have shared with us a wealth of knowledge and ideas that we may leverage within our own businesses. Our SIGÂ’s continue to drive forward offering our members and guests a valuable medium for exchanging industry specific ideas. 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 2017, 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 2017 edition of the BBBF Directory At the beginning of this year, His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa was so enthusiastic about the BHUK200 initiative - marking the bicentenary of official relations between the two countries - that he challenged us to stage 200 events in 12 months. As the year draws to a close, I am delighted to announce that we triumphantly exceeded this ambitious target and I know that His Majesty is also very proud of what has been achieved. The 200th Anniversary is a testament to the enduring ties between our two countries, and I hope it hails the beginning of another 200 years of deep, wide-ranging ties between the UK and Bahrain. It has been a year of activity led by our two Governments across many areas and has involved a diverse range of British and Bahraini people, of different ages and from different walks of life across a wide range of areas including culture, food, business, arts, sport and education. May saw the presence of His Majesty alongside Her Majesty the Queen at Her 90th birthday celebrations in Windsor. Here in Bahrain we were also lucky enough to have hosted a series of high-profile British visits , with HRH The Prince of Wales, and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall visiting Bahrain in November. In December our new Prime Minister Teresa May became the first British Prime Minister to address the leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council at the GCC Summit in Bahrain, establishing a new strategic relationship between Britain and the countries of the GCC. The Prime Minister was followed a few days later Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson who delivered the keynote speech at the IISS Manama Dialogue Regional Security Summit. It hasn’t just been all about Royal and Ministerial Visits: there has also been an enormous contribution from others, both British and Bahraini.

For example the British School staged a wonderfully colourful event for Her Majesty The Queen’s birthday where all of the students, many of whom are not British, celebrated their link, through the school, with Britain and The Queen. In terms of culture, the anniversary celebrations have given opportunities for Bahrainis and expats alike to connect with the UK. Never more so than in April when Shakespeare’s Hamlet was performed at the Cultural Hall by a touring company from London’s Globe Theatre. The event was sold out and we had 150 people watching in the foyer via live link. Education, history and culture met with the display of a WWII Spitfire aircraft which was at Bahrain National Museum for much of the year. The fighter plane was decked out in the livery of a similar aircraft financed by the island’s inhabitants to help the British war effort. Bahrain (along with other Gulf countries), financed the purchase of 11 Spitfires during the Second World War. After learning the ropes from the engineers of the UK’s Royal Air Force Museum, a team of students from Bahrain Polytechnic were then involved in dismantling and reassembling the plane when it has been moved around the island for various events. This has really helped a new generation of Bahrainis understand the long timeline of the Bahraini-British relations. Before we leave the theme of avionics, I couldn’t not mention the Red Arrows fly-past which took place on a sunny November morning at the end of a series of seminars profiling British expertise in Cyber Security. The sight of 9 iconic RAF Hawks flying in formation across the stunning Manama 7


skyline was a most evocative way to highlight British strengths in technology. The following day the Red Arrows completed a second fly past with aircraft from the Royal Bahraini Airforce. This spectacular mixed formation included Red Arrows Hawk T1 fast jets and Hawk 129 jets from the Royal Bahrain Air Force. I think it would be hard to find a better visual of the close links between the UK and Bahrain. Commercially too the anniversary year has proved successful, forging ties which will continue to grow in the coming years. Gulf Air has chosen RollsRoyce to power its new 787 Dreamliner’s. British company Benoy, Architects, Master planners, Interior and Graphic Designers, announced they will provide services for the interior design of the new passenger terminal building as part of the Bahrain Airport Modernization Program. London Southbank University has partnered with the Bahrain based Applied Science University to launch a new College of Engineering. It isn’t all one way traffic, in August of this year Investcorp (Bahrain based provider and manager of alternative investment products) acquired the United Kingdom’s largest independent cyber security service provider; Nebulas Solutions Ltd and then later in October, 3i Group sold its debt management business to Investcorp for £222m. There are also less visible operations such as Bahrain based Midal Cables which is currently refitting the whole national grid in the UK with high-tech aluminium cables. On the military and defence sides, through the construction of HMS Jufair in Bahrain, and thanks to the generosity of the Kingdom of Bahrain, we will soon create a permanent presence in the region, the first such facility east of Suez since 1971, with more British warships, aircraft and personnel deployed on operations in the Gulf than in any other part of the world. 8

This has been a very quick whirlwind overview, and I feel that I have barely touched the surface of the events and achievements accomplished this year. It has been very satisfying to see so much excitement and momentum build around the history and the extent of our 200 year friendship with the UK. This has been especially poignant given that it has been a year of great change and some uncertainty for the UK. But I find it hugely encouraging that there has been so enthusiasm post-Brexit about the possibilities for building new trade and investment links between the UK, Bahrain and the wider Gulf as we leave the European Union. From our side, we can report that there has actually been an upsurge in interest in the UK markets from Bahrain. Indeed the bilateral trade figures between the UK and Bahrain stand at just shy of £495million – a 70% increase over the previous 5 years. This is a good sign that discerning Bahraini investors don’t see a risk around Brexit. We expect this trend to continue. The Bahrain British Business Forum continues to expand, particularly with the Special Interest Groups it has created. The Embassy’s Department for International Trade (DIT) stand ready to assist all British companies doing business here and of course all Bahraini businesses interested in investing in the UK. It has been an exceptionally busy year for us and i wish to thank the BBBF Committee, Special Interest Groups, the BBBF Secretariat as well as the members for your contributions to UK Bahrain relations. Your support is very sincerely appreciated. We look forward to working with the BBBF in 2017. I wish the BBBF and its members a very healthy and prosperous 2017! Simon Martin CMG Ambassador

Special Interest Groups

Paula Boast Interim SIG Chair & Construction SIG Head

The special interest groups exist to meet the needs of members who want to learn more about specific sectors or about specialist areas of expertise in a more informal environment. We want to involve the broader Bahrain business community and encourage non BBBF members as well as BBBF members to come to our meetings.

•

Please support the meetings and come to the shared networking events we organise a couple of times a year.

•

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

•

If you have an idea for an event or want to get involved with the interest group organisation as a whole please get in touch.

•

If you are technical expert who would like to share your knowledge with the broader group get in touch with the appropriate SIG head.

Interest groups aim to meet four times a year. The interest groups started in response to member interest and at the moment we have 9 groups that are outlined in the following page. These are run by individuals who have an interest in the topic themselves and who are willing to manage the process of running their groups with support from the office but they also need to do some of the work themselves. Details of each SIG can also be found on the BBBF Website. How you can get involved;

Thank you to all our members who supported these events. Our special interest groups (SIG) were also very busy and increased from 7 to 9 groups with meetings doubling from the previous year.

Address: PO Box 26666, Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain Tel: 1759-1231 Company Products and Services The BSPCA was established in 1979 by a small group of passionate and committed animal lovers and was officially registered by the Bahrain Ministry of Labour as a humane, charitable, non-profit organisation dedicated to the welfare of animals. The Society is run by a dedicated group of volunteers and receives no funding from the government, depending entirely on income generated by its charity “Thrift Shop” and from its fund raising events as well as the generosity of the public and local companies for donations. The Society was born in 1979 when six people from very different walks of life – a veterinary surgeon, nurse, gynaecologist, horse stable owner, a travel agent and the wife of a DJ at Radio Bahrain – came together to create an organisation to prevent cruelty to animals and promote their welfare in Bahrain. That year the organisation was officially registered by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and began its journey to where it is today, a professional, voluntary, non-profit charitable organisation that is dedicated to addressing the animal welfare issues on the island. The BSPCA aims to: Promote kindness to animals and oppose and prevent cruelty to them. Provide food, shelter and medical assistance to all abandoned animals and those in need of care. Successfully home healthy animals coming through the Animal Welfare Centre. Encourage the spaying and neutering of all cats and dogs in Bahrain, both owned and stray. Discourage illegal importation of non-indigenous wildlife and breeding of animals, particularly for financial gain.

Company Products and Services Bapco was founded by the Standard Oil Company of California in 1929. Pioneering the discovery of oil in 1932 in the Arabian Peninsula, the company began exporting its products in 1934 before commencing refining activities in 1936. Since its primitive days, Bapco has contributed greatly to forming the economy of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Wholly owned by the Government of Bahrain, the company is a frontrunner on the regional energy scene, primarily engaged in exploration, refining, distribution of petroleum products and natural gas and sales and export of crude oil and refined products among other activities. Furthermore, Bapco is an important contributor to modern Bahrain, accounting for a significant portion of the region’s energy-related activities. The company owns a 260,000 barrel-a-day refinery, storage facilities for 14 million barrels, a marketing terminal, and a marine terminal for its petroleum products. About one-sixth of this crude originates from Bahrain Field, with the remainder being pumped from Saudi Arabia through pipelines, with 95% of Bapco’s refined products being exports. A major portion of Bapco’s customer base is constituted by the Middle East, India, the Far East, South East Asia and Africa. The company is engaged in the production of high-quality Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Naphtha, Gasoline, Kerosene, Aviation Turbine Fuel, Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel, Heavy Lube Distillate, Fuel Oil and Asphalt, which form the core of its business. Bapco is also involved in the supply of aviation fuel at the Bahrain International Airport, and supplies natural gas to power-generating plants and other industries in the kingdom. Utilising advanced techniques, Bapco also carries out extensive studies to obtain accurate data on existing oil and gas reserves and explore for new offshore reserves. With an environment-centered approach and a steadfast workforce at its helm, Bapco continues to make great strides in the development of Bahrain’s economy in the times to come.

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 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!

Company Products and Services Founder and President Jean Nicolai sums up the service offering from SteppingStone Global: “Transforming a business into a high performance organisation is all about people. Aligning individuals within an organisation has to be the number one priority. 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.

Next time you visit the UK why not try somewhere different

Bed & Breakfast in the Southwest of England The Robin Hill is ideally located in a central yet quiet area of Torquay, and is just a brief 500 metre stroll down the hill to the town’s harbour, shops, restaurants, bars and seafront. We offer comfortable en-suite bedrooms, a friendly welcome, free parking & wifi and a great breakfast selection. BUT don’t take our word for it... Our most recent TripAdvisor reviews include the following: From the minute we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and ‘valued’, the proprietor gave the impression that nothing would be too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious, attentive waitress. Reviewed in December 2016 Hotel is just up the hill from the harbourside and once settled in, it felt like a home from home. Hosts were very helpful without being obtrusive. Highly recommended if you fancy Torquay - excellent prices at this well-run hotel. Reviewed in November 2016 Brilliant - Had a short half-term break last week. Hotel lovely, very clean and comfortable room. Excellent service and made us feel very welcome. Fantastic breakfast choices. Reviewed in October 2016
