November 28, 2013

Well, as there is absolutely nothing to do here at King Fahd International Airport I may as well post my last Saudi trip related blog. Oh no I hear you cry! OH NO I HEAR YOU CRY. That’s better. (Pantomime season is almost upon us).

It has been an eventful 2 weeks. Riyadh was great for business, the focus was entirely on education and training and it was a great success. The city is massive, rammed with traffic and some pretty impressive buildings and unbelievably terrible driving.

My hotel, the Al Khozama oozed old school chic and service. Very friendly staff who actually took an interest as opposed to the plastic ones you get in some much bigger properties. I have not stayed in a hotel where you hand your proper key into reception when you leave every day for some time. Pretty cool actually.

Al Khozama Hotel, Riyadh

Al Khozama Hotel, Riyadh


The rain was heavy. Very heavy. Closing the whole of Saudi was slightly melodramatic but considering the state of the driving, lack of drainage and dodgy bridge constructions, I could see why. It was amusing to see pictures of one guy jet skiing down a road in Riyadh and another using a polystyrene block a as a raft! However a few years ago over 1000 people died in Jeddah due to the floods so it is an issue which needs to be addressed.

I will skirt over my aching back etc as I am sure you are just as fed up with it as I am. Safe to say it still aches, thanks for asking.

As usual the hospitality of my clients never ceases to amaze me. I genuinely do not expect anything in the way of gifts and I feel very awkward accepting them but it is rude to do anything else. It is very humbling and extremely kind. Receiving a wonderful gift from a candidate was even more surprising, most people we get a job for seem to disappear into the ether, so to feel a genuine warmth and gratitude makes my job a whole lot easier and satisfying. ‘Thank you’ is such an emotive phrase when delivered with dignity and feeling.

Of course I could not remain professional all the time:
*Sitting in the middle of the family section in the poshest hotel in Riyadh (Ritz Carlton) before being rescued by my client.
*Trying to open a wall thinking it was a door in another very posh hotel (Four Seasons).
*Being mistaken and then confirming that I am the British Ambassador to Saudi Arabia (he is over 6ft and white) so easy mistake…
*Killing time by going to a mall before discovering none of the shops would be opening for another 3 hours and I could not go anywhere so had to wander around aimlessly whilst the security guards wondered what on earth I was doing.

So you can see, international recruiter supreme I may be, but interspersed with bouts of idiocy.

After Riyadh I flew up to the Eastern Province to hook up with the UKTI trade mission. I always enjoy these missions as it is an excellent opportunity to make good contacts and showcase the company. As this part of Saudi was my route to entry several years ago, I always end up trying to see more people than I actually have time for. Plus the Arab culture is to arrange a meeting with nano seconds notice meaning a rigid schedule is never a good idea. I didn’t do too badly, a mix of confirmed and off the cuff meetings were had and all went pretty well. Even the bizarre client meeting (with a group that we have had tremendous recent success with) where one of the guys decided to rip into me for no reason whatsoever and I almost walked out. Even this one ended with us confirming more business and a vote of thanks! I am still shaking my head as to what twilight zone I wandered into.

It was particularly interesting to see some expat compounds. That is all I am saying on the matter!!

In summary, 2014 is going to be immense. My head hurts in trying to work out how we are going to fit it all in, but we will and it will all be a tremendous success. Coupled with the new contracts we have signed in Bahrain and Oman, plus existing clients increasing their requirements, I suspect next year will pass in a blink of an eye.


Time flies

November 22, 2013

Has it been a week already? I am sure Riyadh has a time warp of some sort, after all, it has everything else!
My meetings went very well, clients were extremely appreciative of the effort I have made to come and visit them. I am genuinely interested in building solid partnerships and this has been gratefully accepted. When I work with organisations that truly value our support, input and advice, it makes the job easier and also gives added motivation to assist. Here I am treated as a partner and an equal and it is truly refreshing.

I still find it amazing that UK recruitment companies who want to work overseas but cannot be bothered to make the business trips required in order to cement relationships. This is why we are building an excellent reputation and you are not. Long may your laziness be our catalyst for growth.

As usual my trips are always laced with a modicum of hilarity, generally attributed to me leaving my brain back in the hotel room. This time was no exception. I think trying to open a wall thinking it was a door probably ranks as number one, but for those who understand the culture here, plonking myself down slap bang in the middle of the family section at the Ritz Carlton whilst waiting for my dinner companions ranks very close indeed. I think my utter naivety was the saving grace here.

If you are going to mistakenly sit in the family section, there are worse places than this..

If you are going to mistakenly sit in the family section, there are worse places than this..

Ritz Carlton, Riyadh. The most amazingly opulent hotel I have seen.

Riyadh is certainly a haven for shopping and opulence on a grand scale. I have never seen so many Versace shops in one city before, not to mention Leboutin, Louis Vuitton, Bugatti, Chanel and Debenhams. The past week has been an eye opener for me too. Having only worked in the Eastern Province before, I have never seen women’s only floors in malls with security guards making sure that it is a bone fide woman wishing to enter. Shops only open to families, men and women’s queues at fast food outlets and separate offices for sexes too. But, at no point have I felt any concern or have had any issues, totally the opposite. Everyone I have met has been friendly, helpful (apart from the taxi driver who dropped me at the wrong place and then admitted he could not read and had very bad eyesight) and gave me no cause to worry at all.

I have been treated to amazing dinners in unbelievable settings, received extremely humbling gifts and experienced hospitality that in the UK, companies would not even dream of doing. Nothing has been too much.

Trips to the British Embassy, major universities and colleges were extremely interesting and I leave with a knowledge bank that will now help to develop our strategy for 2014 and beyond. Companies need our help and we are best placed to serve. I plan to come back back in February for an education conference, I am sure this will come round in a blink of an eye.

An Arabian Odyssey – An 18 day business trip to the Middle East

August 13, 2013

For those of you who don’t know, I am the Managing Director of m2r Ltd and we devote most of our time to working with companies in the Middle East, helping them fill critical roles. I have been traveling, virtually every 4 months to the region to see our clients and of course, drum up new business. Normally I tend to base myself in just one location but this time I decided to ramp things up a little. Below is what I got up to on my travels:

The master plan this time around was to visit 4 countries in 18 days, meeting as many companies as humanly possible and showcasing not only my company but also Wakefield.

On the 25th April, armed with my suitcase, numerous folders, business cards and a bad back, I set off. The bad back was not a planned accompaniment, I hasten to add.

After a 7 hour wait in Dubai airport (exactly the same time as it took to actually fly to Dubai), I arrived at my first destination, Muscat in Oman. This was my first ever visit to Oman and one I was looking forward to. Unfortunately, as well as my unwanted bad back, I also appeared to have brought the UK weather with me. Well, the rain at least.
I had arranged 6 meetings in Muscat, 2 with current clients (our only 2 in Oman) and 4 were new business. However, I always start any business trip with a day off. I land at the beginning of the weekend, giving myself one day to get sorted out. I have learnt from bitter experience that jumping straight into meetings without a day’s preparation and reoccupation is never the best idea.

Muscat Corniche

With typical Middle Eastern hospitality, I was invited to spend my day off with the COO from one of my clients who acted as my tourist guide and showed me around Muscat. I try to make a point of seeing as much of a country as I can, without it turning into a Judith Chalmers holiday programme. As we are in the business of expatriation, I cannot ethically discuss an opportunity in another country if I have never actually been myself. I am asking people to change their whole life and therefore I need to be able to give them as much information as possible. It really amazes me how many organisations who do business overseas never actually bother to meet their clients. If it too much hassle, then seriously, do something else.

A trick I always use is to start a business trip with a current client meeting, get warmed up first and test the pitch and get some local market knowledge. I always tell them where I am going and whom I am seeing, invariably I will pick up some nuggets and sometimes I can get two or three new meetings from referrals from my first one. I then build up to the really important new business meetings, the ones that can turn a trip from good to great. My first trip to Oman ended up this way.
An Omani fishing village

Oman, like most countries in the GCC are heavily focussed on the nationalisation of jobs and therefore getting expat visas can be difficult. This information is essential for my line of business.
After some exploratory appointments where the aim of the game is to build that new relationship by sitting with decision makers without being too pushy and ‘salesy’, I ended up at my key meeting of my short stint in Oman.

I was told that the Middle East is a ‘village’ and should be viewed as such. This never really struck home until this particular trip. In my final meeting of the day, with another brand new client, it transpired that not five minutes before I turned up, one of their partner companies in Dubai had called and suggested they use m2r for their recruitment. The two on the phone had no idea I was literally walking into the building in Muscat. It was a pure coincidence but fantastic for me. After a great meeting I walked out with a signed agreement, and a raft of positions within oil & gas training. I am a big believer in making your own luck and this was proof. So a great end to the day and set the precedence for the rest of the trip.

Presenting 'Experience Wakefield' to Primedia Oman

Presenting ‘Experience Wakefield’ to Primedia Oman

My initial observation was that Oman, as well as being the most mountainous country in the GCC, is also the most laid back. Driving is not as suicidal as in, say, Saudi Arabia and no one uses their horn. The Omani people are excellent hosts and I can see why the expatriate community love living there.

I left Oman, quickly followed by the rain and headed off to Bahrain, a 90 minute hop. I will certainly be returning to the Sultanate as I see a lot of potential and the feedback I received was extremely positive. Just the effort of travelling 3500 miles to see companies can sometimes secure the business. You then have to deliver.

Bahrain is a country I know very well. I have worked with companies there for the past 5 years and been to the island over 20 times. We handle the recruitment needs for most of the major Bahraini trading families, the Formula One circuit and a couple of 5* hotels and our client list just keeps growing.

Contrary to the international new reports, Bahrain is not a war zone, I didn’t need an escort or a tin hat. In fact I walked around, on my own! With 20 appointments in Bahrain in 4 days and lots of business to be done, it is all go, from dawn til dusk every day, seeing clients, meeting clients socially and of course, pitching for new business. I am pretty well known there and I am glad to say that my reputation does precede me, in a positive manner. I deal with quite a few large Bahraini families and due to the culture, they all know each other and share information. Therefore I have to be careful about delivering a consistently exemplary service as bad news, in such a small island, can travel very fast.

The hospitality I receive from my regular clients in Bahrain always humbles me. Nothing is too much and help is always at hand if I need it. My name is passed around between companies and we receive a lot of business through referrals now. Obviously to get to this level has taken a lot of hard work. This time I was invited to the house of the Chairman of one of the most well respected companies in Bahrain. His house, or should I say, small palace, was incredible. I was treated to a sumptuous meal, wonderful company and at the end a gift as a thank you for the work I had been doing. Most business is done over dinner / drinks so these events for me are treated as an opportunity to really build the bond. In Arabic culture, friendship comes first, then business.

I also take gifts for my clients, as a token of gratitude for the business they give me. I know that I have absolutely no right to work with them and our relationship only flourishes due to the service we provide. Why else would a company 3500 miles away give us vacancies when there are local recruiters that they could use? Currently in the Middle East, it is the place where I feel most at home, probably due to the size of the country and the relationships I have developed there. Having lived in Wakefield all my life, I am not a great lover of huge cities and the personalities that invariably end up there.

I left Bahrain after a great four days, my suitcase weight was increasing rapidly due to the gifts I was amassing, from F1 memorabilia to cufflinks and fold up binoculars, hopefully someone would present me with another travel case as a present pretty soon! Thankfully, the rain (which flooded the capital whilst I was there) seemed to have given up following me, my poor back unfortunately made it through immigration. Damn.

Country number 3 was Saudi Arabia. Size of Western Europe, very secretive and a nightmare to get in. Well, by air at least. You can drive to Saudi from Bahrain, across the King Fahd Causeway, a 16 mile long bridge across the Arabian Gulf. In their wisdom, the Saudi government have decided that on a new visa, entry has to be by air. So a 30 minute drive can turn into several hour long trek, of which only 20 minutes is in the air. It took me 2 hours to clear immigration in Dammam Airport, Saudi Arabia. Getting into Saudi through the airport is extremely stressful but my advice for anyone wishing to do business in Saudi is just grin and bear it.

Due to the sheer size of the country and awful traffic, it is difficult to cram lots of meetings into one day. Also, in true Arabian fashion, meetings to tend to get rearranged at the last minute so remember to exercise patience, be flexible and appreciate that this is just how things are done. So, I started my Saudi leg with 5 meetings and ended up with 7. I always make people aware that I will be in a certain place at a certain time and by providing a local number, I invariably get calls from companies wishing to meet me. The local British Embassy Trade Office are a great source of information and I have a good relationship with them, so when a company needs a recruitment firm, I often get passed the details.

Again, Saudi has a tarnished reputation. But this is generally created by people who have never been and base their opinions on one sided journalism and hearsay. I like the Kingdom. It is friendly, crime free and I do not feel threatened or intimidated at all. Admittedly my experience in only of the Eastern Province but it is still more than most people. All the clients I work with are very accommodating and currently, make up around 50% of our overall revenue. Yes, it is a pain to get in and constant follow up is needed but the rewards are amazing.
We work with a large number of companies in Saudi Arabia, mainly in the Eastern Province but also in Riyadh and across in Jeddah. Again, I am always afforded unbelievable hospitality and nothing is too much trouble. Of course, this level of relationship means you have to deliver. No excuses. This time I was taken out for dinner every single night, had 2 lunches in the space of 3 hours and presented with gifts that really drove home the hospitable nature of the Middle East and also how well we are respected by our clients. If it wasn’t for the call to prayer, where everything shuts, I would have received even more gifts. It can get rather embarrassing as our culture is too cynical to accept grand gestures.

By the time I left Saudi, I had picked up work with 2 new clients, confirmed a number of projects with current clients and the vacancy count before arriving in Dubai stood at over 500. So the stress of getting in and constantly chasing clients to reconfirm appointments was certainly worth the effort. Again, leaving Saudi is just as traumatic as arriving. Another 2 hours wasted in immigration, just to leave!

My final stop was Dubai. A total and utter contrast to Saudi Arabia. Bold and brash, Dubai is still a huge draw and thousands of British expats live there. I finished the trip with another 3 meetings, one was a continuation of a meeting in Saudi but this time at the head office. Again, they were very grateful that I had bothered to make the effort.
A perfect representation of all things Dubai.

A perfect representation of all things Dubai.

So, after 18 days, was it worth the effort? My back had been given a state burial somewhere in Saudi, I was exhausted and missing home. The results are below:
• 30 meetings
• 18 days
• 4 countries
• Over 7000 miles travelled
• 40% new business appointments
• Over £200k worth of recruitment projects secured / won

Let’s put it like this – I am back in September to do it all over again…..

Travel the world teaching English!

May 16, 2013

Teach English Overseas!
What is TEFL and Why is it Right For Me?

In contrast to popular opinion TEFL is not a range of non-stick pans, but a qualification that will allow you to teach English abroad. To avoid confusion, TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) can also be referred to as TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) – acronyms aside, both result in a qualification that will allow you to boost your CV, learn new skills, and get paid to travel the world!

If you’re new to TEFL, here are answers to some frequently asked questions about the world of teaching English abroad:

Why do I need a TEFL qualification when I already speak English?

You might speak fluent English but what about when a student asks you to explain the rules of the present perfect tense? A TEFL qualification will not only guide you through the tricky bits of English grammar and how to teach it but it is also a requirement demanded by TEFL employers.

Getting involved in TEFL is becoming extremely popular meaning that it is also becoming quite a competitive market. Gone are the days where you can jet-off to an exotic destination and pick up a teaching job no problem, you now need to set yourself apart from the crowd! Many employers (especially those based in Middle East) are now demanding a minimum of 100 hours of TEFL training from a recognised TEFL provider. It’s therefore really important to make sure that you use an established TEFL course provider (look at how long they’ve been in the industry and also their accreditation).

How Can I Get Qualified?

There are three ways to get TEFL qualified – online or classroom-based courses, or a combination of the two.

Why online?
Getting TEFL qualified online means you can study for your TEFL course at a time to suit you, there aren’t any classes to attend or submission deadlines – you can study from anywhere in the world at your own pace! Perfect for a busy student!

Why classroom?

Classroom courses are the best way to put your hard-earned teaching skills into practice! The relaxed atmosphere amongst other TEFL teachers in training acts as a trial run before you get out there and take up your first teaching position.

TEFL is measured in hours; a qualification can therefore be anything from 20 hours to 140 (or more!) meaning you can choose how qualified you are.

Do I need to speak the local language?

This is one of the most commonly asked questions – and the answer is no! Although it might sound like a daunting prospect – moving from your home country where everyone around you speaks a language that you understand – the main aim for English language learners is to be totally immersed in the new language. It also provides YOU with the opportunity to completely immerse yourself in a new community and culture!

How do I get a job?

Once you’re qualified you can start applying for teaching positions all over the world, including the Middle East. Teaching contracts tend to be from 8 months to a year which you can apply by visiting, emailing or calling 0845 3884145.

Finally…why should I TEFL?

Teaching English abroad will really set you apart from other students and graduates when it comes to finding full-time employment after college. Here are a few skills that you’re guaranteed to pick up whilst teaching abroad and that are valued by employers worldwide:

• Management – teaching English abroad and commanding the attention of students will demonstrate that you have leadership skills.
• Patience – this might sound like a silly one – but your ability to see a task through and listen to your students (no matter how many times they ask you the same question) will go a long way for you in the world of work.
• Delivering a lesson – public speaking is one of the most feared activities but after a few months spent delivering lessons you’ll be an absolute expert on the matter!
