The Center for Global Best Practices will be hosting a seminar called “Best Practices in Letters of Credit” on May 5 & 6, 2011 at the New World Hotel. This is to address the various problems and setbacks concerning the use of letters of credit (LC), including business risks that can eventually lead to financial losses when it is done improperly. A letter of credit is a commonly used instrument of payment in international trade transactions such as import and export of goods. Unknown to many, there are many pitfalls and traps involved in its use. One of the dangers of using LCs is that many companies deliberately resort to bad tricks to victimize others.

For more information on this seminar, visit or call Zennie Escudero at (02) 556-8968/69 (Manila) or (032) 512-3106/07 for more details. Discounts are available for those who will register and pay early, and those who will register three attendees or more. This is a limited-seats-only event and pre-registration is required.

This two-day seminar will highlight practical steps in issuing proper LCs and how they work, what to do to avoid pitfalls, and actions to take in cases of discrepancies. New regulations (and the application of UCP 600) involving letters of credit will be covered. This program will also present easy-to-understand case studies and samples to highlight best practices pointers and tips, including topics such as cost saving areas in LC operations that your banker will never tell you, overcoming delays in payment in LC transactions, liabilities of banks, remedies, and many more. The seminar is applicable to manufacturers, importers, exporters, traders, entrepreneurs, bankers, insurers, transporters of goods, CFOs, company treasurers, and those interested in fully understanding how LCs work.

The lecture will feature Singapore-based expert, Victor Tan, an authority in the field of trading and banking, and who has 15 years of banking experience in Europe, covering areas of international trade finance, remittances, guarantees, and import and export. He holds a Master of Business Administration degree from University of Strathclyde, UK and is a qualified Life Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Bankers, London. He has worked with various international banks such as Standard Chartered Bank, Amsterdam-Rotterdam Bank, Bangkok Bank, Royal Trust Merchant Bank and Barclays Bank, the last of which he served as deputy head of the trade finance department. He conducts highly specialized training programs for clients in Jakarta, Bangkok and Singapore. He will teach attendees all the best practices applications of LCs for one’s advantage.

Business Continuity Certification Training in Qatar

Friday, March 20th, 2009

Business interruptions can strike anytime, anywhere. Recent disasters in China and around the world, plus the Internet cable cutting incidents in the Arabian Gulf, serve as reminders that every business and government agency must have a business continuity plan.  Effective Business Continuity Planning ensures that vital business processes continue – no matter what happens.Business Continuity Certification Training

Most companies in the GCC do not yet have an effective business continuity plan to deal with these emergency situations. In case of a major disaster, 40% to 60% of these would go out of business forever or experience preventable loss of life.

For the very first time in Qatar, an international Diploma course in Business Continuity Management will be presented in Doha October 19-22, 2009 to teach a certified methodology for developing Business Continuity Plans.

“This is an exceptional and comprehensive course,” notes Michael Bittle, Managing Director of the Institute for Business Continuity Training which is hosting this workshop. “Every company in the GCC should send their senior management, HR, auditors, IT specialists, records managers, and virtually everyone involved with strategic business management.”

“This course is particularly useful for companies which do not have a Business Continuity Plan, or have one that only covers their computer systems. Recovering computer systems will not help you recover inventory, staff or customers,” adds Mr. Bittle.

Entitled “Effective Business Continuity Management”, this workshop incorporates both the new British Standard 25999 regarding Business Continuity Management, and the US NFPA 1600 standard. The course proceeds from project inception through to implementation and management. This includes sessions on Risk Assessment and Business Impact Analysis, and Awareness and Training, utilizing an “all hazards” approach applicable to every size and type of company.

Invitations have gone out to all major corporations and business associations in the Gulf Region to send representatives to the course. “We expect banking and insurance companies will attend,” Mr. Bittle says, “along with manufacturing, telecommunications and petroleum firms.” Companies are encouraged to send multiple representatives to receive special discounts.

Two internationally-recognized experts will lead this intensive 4 day training course. Mr. Bittle holds both the CBRM and CCM certifications in business continuity planning with over 20 years experience in disaster planning and emergency management. He will be supported by Mr. Robert Swift, CPCU, CIPA, CBCP who is a business interruption and contingency planning specialist with over thirty years experience in the insurance and financial services industry.

Course participants receive a Diploma in Business Continuity Management and also have the opportunity to write the professional exam for the Certified Continuity Manager designation at no additional charge. They also receive a CD-ROM full of electronic tools in Word, PDF, Excel and PowerPoint format covering all aspects of Business Continuity Planning, including a complete business resumption plan which can be used as a template for their own firm’s BCP.

The Institute for Business Continuity Training is a leading international agency specializing in training corporations and governments on the value of effective business continuity plans. IBCT’s training technique combines instructor-led discussion, case studies and group exercises, and their focus is to train participants in “industry best practices’ as well as the “best principles” for developing Business Continuity Plans for their firms. IBCT has prior experience providing training in Qatar, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

The course fee is $ 2000 until April 19; after that it is $ 3000. Registration and details are available online at For additional information, contact Michael Bittle at
