H+K in the Middle East is a content partner for the GCC Board Directors Institute (“BDI”). Launched in 2007, BDI is the pre-eminent organisation for boards and directors in the Gulf and it is helping boards become more effective so that organisations perform better and grow.

Other content partners for the Institute are PwC, McKinsey & Co, Heidrick & Struggles and Allen & Overy and it’s also supported by the Capital Market Authorities in Saudi Arabia, Oman and the UAE, Qatar Financial Centre and the Central Bank of Bahrain. In our capacity of content partner, we contribute knowledge on matters critical to board effectiveness in today’s multi-faceted and high-speed communications environment.

H+K’s Regional Director, Andrew Bone, states: “BDI is a not-for-profit organisation which is doing fundamentally important work in developing world class corporate governance and the role of company boards. We are helping the Institute communicate its story, as well as helping promote best practice directorship among chairmen, board directors, regulators and industry stakeholders within the GCC markets.”
