Rudinov Vincent, Senior Conference Producer at Fleming Gulf and responsible for this event quotes, Human Resource issues are of growing importance in the Middle East as economies growing on petro-dollars restructure & localize their traditionally heavy expatriate workforce. The oil, gas & petrochemicals sector is no exception to this. Within the next 5 to 10 years, Oil, Gas &
Petrochemical companies will face a severe shortage of qualified staff. The average age of staff in this Industry is nearing retirement. The challenge here is not just to identify the right talent, but to identify & nurture local talent hence this year event will take HR to the boardroom, from just being a traditional function to now being a strategic function in the company’s bottom line. The strongest point of our events has been format of conference which allows good interaction between the participants. Moreover the event is a must not miss gathering of industry leaders and HR professionals.

Managing Local Talent

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Think Global – Work Local…

With the increase in the number of qualified nationals, the GCC countries stand at the threshold of a new era in maximising the potential of their national human capital. However, the current economic situation threatens to undermine the hard-won gains of the nationalisation effort. With companies focusing more on cost – cutting, downsizing and consolidating, the need of the hour is the correct identification, retention and skill set development of the top national employees.

Jacob Fleming is proud to announce the “Managing Local Talent� conference, held in Doha-Qatar on 5-7 October 2009, a three-day Conference & workshop programme, featuring regional and international leaders in the HR profession from GCC region.

The event is crafted with the support of our distinguished panel of advisors who are experts in the field of nationalization. HR practitioners, advisors, academics, consultants and industry experts will come together to speak about and study nationalisation from all angles and find realistic solutions through key note presentations, case studies, speaker panel discussions and scenario based problem solving sessions, like: Current Nationalisation Initiatives in the GCC, how to implement an Effective Nationalisation Plan, Practical Techniques for Proper Assessment and Recruitment, Coaching and Mentoring Programmes for the Integration and Retention of Nationals, potential of the National Women workforce, the role of Education in Nationalisation.

Joy Isaiah, Conference Producer at Jacob Fleming and responsible for this event quotes “Jacob Fleming conferences bring in high level senior industry people who are carefully selected and invited so that the relevance of topics are ensured and business opportunities exists for all involved. The strongest point of our events has been format of conference which allows good interaction between the participants. Moreover the events being non vendor driven never fail to provide the attendees, a true knowledge sharing experience.â€?

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.
