Today is a wonderful day for me. It is BECS’s 8th birthday. Today I look back at the last twelve months and what we have achieved.

First of all, we bought our own premises and moved the South West Office to a new location in Paignton last June. Now we feel right at home. When I am here I look out over our sunny English flower garden and think how lucky we are.

Secondly, this year we delivered Dealing with Change, Advanced Negotiations Workshop, Strategic Planning and Report and Business Letters writing to Kuwait Petroleum Corporation. The feedback was fantastic again. BECS is a preferred supplier and I have been classed as “Outstanding Consultant” which is a real honour.

I have also been heavily  involved with “Business and Professional Women Kuwait” (BPW) and delivered training courses and two conferences for them. These workshops were to help Kuwaiti women start up their own companies, survive in business and empower them through the eight United Nations principles.

Once again I had a fantastic year. I met up with good friends and made some new ones. Life is busy and exciting and I would not have it any other way. I would like to thank everyone who helped make BECS a success in the last eight years. I couldn’t have done it without you!
