Young entrepreneurs discuss business challenges
Manama, February 24, 2014
More than 40 members of ‘The Young Entrepreneurs Forum’ and their guests took part in a discussion on the competitive regional business landscape recently.
Julia Atherton-Dandy, general manager at Hill Knowlton Strategies, moderated discussion, held at the Capital Club.
During the session, leading young businessmen Aymen Almoayed, chairman and managing partner of Almoayed Chambers; Amin Al Arrayad, general manager of First Bahrain; and Greg Hughes, chief executive officer of Nans Group and Zest Media, shared their experiences and innovative ideas on the challenges and opportunities of Bahrain’s entrepreneurial environment.
Atherton-Dandy said: “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 per cent 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,” she said.
