Julia Atherton-Dandy, General Manager at Hill Knowlton Strategies, moderated ‘The Young Entrepreneurs Forum’ which was held at the Capital Club, Bahrain’s premier private business club on Tuesday, 18th February 2014. More than 40 Members and their guests attended the session which provided an excellent platform for discussion on the competitive regional business landscape.
During the session, leading young businessmen Aymen Almoayed, Chairman and Managing Partner of Almoayed Chambers, Amin Al Arrayad, General Manger of First Bahrain and Greg Hughes, Chief Executive Officer of Nans Group and Zest Media shared their varied experiences and innovative ideas on the challenges and opportunities of Bahrain’s entrepreneurial environment.
Commenting on the event, moderator Mrs Atherton-Dandy stated, “This Forum has enabled us to hear from a diverse, yet highly experienced, panel on their unique entrepreneurial experiences. Our panel represents the media, real estate, food and beverage and legal sectors and each are innovators in their own field.
“Bahrain has a historic and rich business and trading history with currently over 70% of the Kingdom’s private sector consisting of SMEs. To harness the experiences of our entrepreneurial community at events like this one, will enable us to keep moving forward and ensure that Bahrain’s business culture remains vibrant and modern.”
