Communications & Public Affairs

The Communications & Public Affairs department is dedicated to enhancing and upholding Mumtalakat’s brand and reputation by ensuring that our stakeholders are well informed of our progress and key achievements.

Key Milestones in 2019:

As part of efforts to enhance collaboration and promote a culture of knowledge sharing, we organised a corporate communication strategies workshop for communication teams from our portfolio companies. Over 50 representatives of 30 local and international companies participated in the workshop, which was held as part of our Lunch & Learn series.

We also continued to support the Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Mumtalakat. Through our partnership with McLaren, we developed an exclusive programme to invite business guests from across the world and portfolio companies to our paddock suite at the 2019 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.

In addition to our involvement in several local, regional and international investor conferences such as the Future Investment Initiative (FII) and media engagements including CNBC, Bloomberg, Financial Times to name a few, this year saw the launch of an online campaign, #SpiritOfRamadan, aimed at increasing awareness of food wastage.

We concluded 2019 by recognising and commemorating 27 of our Group’s outstanding employees in the lead up to Bahrain’s National Day. Our annual awards programme was held for the third year in a row alongside the inter-linked digital campaign, ‘Many Stories, One Bahrain’.
