Dr. Gary Bradt Helps Bahrainis "Adapt and Ignite!"

Our very own Dr. Gary Bradt recently returned from a speaking engagement in the Kingdom of Bahrain, where he received rave reviews for helping local businesspeople learn new ways to "Adapt and Ignite!"

Beverly Louis, Head of Client Relations at the Bahrain International Retail Development Centre (BIRD), brought Gary in to present to local business owners and managers, because of the universal nature of his message of "change." Gary shared with them principles from his book The Ring in the Rubble: Dig Through Change and Find Your Next Golden Opportunity, to help them better manage and adapt to future change.

Attendees were delighted with a full-day, interactive version of Gary's signature program, "Adapt and Ignite!," which couldn't have been more relevant in their fast-changing society. "Dr. Bradt gave our attendees many new and valuable tools for not only dealing with change, but thriving as a result of it as well," said Beverly. "He is extremely knowledgeable and is also very professional to work with. We will definitely be inviting Dr. Bradt back to Bahrain!"

Beverly and Peggy - new BFFs!
Which would be just fine with Gary's wife, Peggy, who also made the trip to Bahrain. While Gary thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, Peggy might have enjoyed it even more. She and Beverly were instant friends and had a ton of fun hanging out without Gary!

It's great to have such a "gold standard" for this kind of engagement. Gary and I knew right from the beginning that we were working with a true professional in Beverly Louis. She made all those extra "international hoops" we had to jump through painless, and it goes to show you if you have the right partners, success is inevitable. A big thank you to Beverly, BIRD and Gary for a job very well done.
I definitely see a return trip to Bahrain in the future. Hopefully Peggy will let Gary come along next time too.
