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 http://www.IBCT-Qatar.com. For additional information, contact Michael Bittle at mbittle@IBCT-Qatar.com.

One-of-a-kind luxury timepieces to be showcased at Dubai International Jewellery Week 2008

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Photobucket

Over 20,000 visitors are expected to get a first-hand glimpse at some of the finest watches in the world.

They say that one of the best ways to make a statement without saying a word is to make a big impression with what you wear. As far as style statements go, it’s hard to beat an exquisite timepiece around your wrist that says it all – style, class, precision, perfection and elegance. Dubai International Jewellery Week (DIJW), the region’s premier watch and jewellery exhibition, has earned a reputation over the years for being an event that is ahead of its time, and this year, the show is poised to sparkle more than ever with an exquisite collection of timepieces.

More than 500 brands, visitors, designers, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers from 30 countries are set to share the stage at this year’s event, with the finest collection of timepieces seen in the region all under one roof. Many of the luxury timepieces will be featured in Areeq Dubai, the ultra-luxurious arm of DIJW which will showcase brands from the crème-de-la crème of the jewellery world. The biggest brand names and the most prominent watch distributors and exhibitors from the region and beyond, including Bin Hendi, Charles Oudin and Breitling to name a few, will be vying for the spotlight at the three day event that will attract the finest of Dubai high society.

If any indication was needed about the rising demand for quality timepieces, it lies in the increased ad spend by the watch and jewellery industry. Brands are raising the bar and digging deep into their pockets to get noticed and stay a step ahead of the competition, resulting in the ad spend for last year alone clocking in at $151.9 million, a remarkable 16.6% increase from 2006*. With the watch assuming a significant standing as a status symbol, the need to be different and stand out from the crowd is at an all time high. Customization is in, and is here to stay, and DIJW 2008 will provide the perfect platform for a series of new launches, niche designs and futuristic trends that will be unveiled for the very first time.

Money is not a barrier for elite, high profile executives who seek individuality and exclusivenessâ€? says Mr. Haissam Chamsine, Senior Vice President for Watches and Jewellery at Bin Hendi, one of the key exhibitors. “Over the years we have catered for various special custom made watches with retail prices ranging from AED 2 million to AED 6 million. Our most popular orders would be customised dials with initials, names or logos in fancy coloured diamonds, as well as a choice of bracelets, Bezels with diamonds, pave or baguette. The precious metal used here varies from Yellow, Rose or white gold as well as the most expensive Platinum. These are of course limited to only one or two pieces of luxury, which guarantees individuality and exclusivity he adds. Bin Hendi’s elite customers, like Jacob & co, Ulysse Nardin, Franc Vila, Nubeo and De La Cour, have been a popular target for customisation. The group has also introduced the GoldVish, the latest, most exclusive and most expensive mobile phone in the market, which will now join the existing luxury brands to get an exclusive customized touch.

The GCC has always possessed a population that has a thorough understanding of quality jewellery and timepieces said Ms. Trixee Loh, Senior VP, Exhibitions and Events Management, Dubai World Trade Centre. This coupled with their high-spending power and a thriving per capita income makes the region a perfect market for high-end jewellery and timepieces, making DIJW which incorporates Areeq, the ideal place to get a first-hand feel of the best in the business he added.

With the biggest names in the industry, an extremely high glamour quotient, a series of new launches and special events and lots more in store, Dubai International Jewellery Week is one show that any connoisseur of fine jewellery and timepieces cannot afford to miss. The event will be held from 11 to 15 November 2008 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. Jewellery Collections Dubai and Jewellery Trade Dubai, the Retail and Trade elements of the show will take place from 11 to 15 November, while the Luxury event Areeq Dubai will be held from 13 to 15 November.
