Archive for October, 2011


I am very proud and pleased to announce that BECS was awarded three contracts to deliver “Dealing with Change”, “Advanced Negotiation Skills” and “Strategic Planning” for Kuwait Petroleum Corporation this school year.

I was in Kuwait last week to deliver the first of seven “Dealing with Change” courses and it was wonderful to be back at the Petroleum Training Centre in Ahmadi and the Crowne Plaza in Farwaniyah. I was welcomed as a long-lost sister.

Unfortunately I could only stay for one week and I have still so many friends to meet up with after a long summer. I will be back in Kuwait on 16 October and back in Bahrain on 30 October for one week.

I am looking forward to being in Kuwait on a monthly basis. Not just to deliver training at KPC, but also to work with Business and Professional Women Kuwait, Kuwait Economic Society, British Business Forum, Arab Open University, the British schools in the Gulf, Bahrain Training Institute and BIBF .

I am looking forward to coffees, lunches, dinners, meetings with friends on sunny terraces in a lovely part of the world.
See you soon!
