Senator Dr. Richard Schenz, President of the Austro-Arab Chamber of Commerce emphasized in his speech on the historical depth of Bahrain, which extends for 6000 years and witnessed during this period the interaction with multiple cultures and civilizations. He pointed out that Bahrain was known since ancient times as a trading center and that it has currently the ideal conditions in terms of the tax system.

In his presentation, Mr. Sebastian Gerlach, Business Development Manager for the DACH region of the Bahrain Economic Development Board spoke about the economic development witnessed by the Kingdom of Bahrain, and that ongoing reforms & regulatory improvements have made Bahrain the freest economy in the Arab World for 20 consecutive years, which makes it ideal for partnerships and economic cooperation.

The meeting was moderated by Eng. Mouddar Khouja, Secretary General of the Austro-Arab Chamber of Commerce who also made a presentation on the Kingdom of Bahrain, past and present until the British occupation, then the end of the British protectorate of Bahrain in 1969. He mentioned that Bahrain held a referendum in 1970 under the auspices of the United Nations which ended in favor of Bahrain being an Arab country independent of Iran; the Declaration of Bahrain's independence came on August 15, 1971. He pointed out that Bahrain was the first country among the Gulf states, which embarked on girls' education and established their first girl school in the region in 1929.

 Unicon Management Consulting


The Company


UNICON situated in Vienna, Austria, looks back on more than 26 years of consultation and training. Starting in 1987, UNICON soon became a consultant known for recognizing and considering the individualities of its customers. Through the years a wide range of branches and industries addressed UNICON as their partner. Now Unicon is starting with a branch in Abu Dhabi.

Our customers value the continuous approach to projects as well as the flexibility in reaction to our customer’s needs.


We would like to present two programs for the development of “leadership skills”:


Charismatic Leadership in a multicultural environment

Leadership involves a wide range of qualities and competencies. Not only functional and technical expertise is crucial. The higher the position and the more employees you work with, the higher the need to emphasize social skills.

Social skills are often referred to as “soft skills”. From years and years of experience UNICON has learned that this labeling is inaccurate. Managers, team- or project leaders lacking social skills are often confronted with problems and challenges deriving from inaccurate communication, missing of goal setting, enervation of personal presence or the lack of understanding the employees’ motivations. Understanding and mastering these skills make the difference between an inefficient, unsuccessful leader and a leader who will earn the trust and respect of team and staff.

Leadership is a “hard skill”.


Your advantages of charismatic leadership in a multicultural environment:

  • Ensure successful leading with your individual impression.
  • Get to know the potential of your personal impact and learn how to effectively use it.
  • A fast and effective handling of challenges by your multicultural team takes an authentic and credibly appearance of the leader.

 Unicon image1

Focus of charismatic leadership:

  • Choosing and applying the right methods of communication
  • Personal presence and areal strategies
  • Awareness about your individualities and strengths
  • Prototypes of Leadership
  • Individual appearance
  • Influential power of your personal features on your impact
  • Expanding elements of your personal impact
  • How success or failure affect individual patterns of behavior
  • Feeling and creating emotions

Lateral Thinking


Not only when in Rome – do as the Romans.

“Appius Valerius sat on a flat stone. The emperor had commanded him to build the greatest Colosseum the world had ever seen. He was a well-known and respected architect, but this assignment gave him a headache.”

Wherever problems shall be solved, work situations shall be newly created and new solutions to old problems shall be found.

Today we know that (our fictional) Appius Valerius and all his (non-fictional) affiliates have achieved the impossible. But what happened? They used thinking strategies that set aside old ideas and cleared their minds for new solutions to come. Building the Colosseum was not only a technical masterpiece but foremost a masterly performance of the human brain. It could only be done by improving existing material and inventing new strategies: enhancement of concrete or the implementation of mass-production for example. Brainstorming or picking up impulses from other – not associated – fields were just two of many lateral thinking methods they used to achieve the unachievable.


Your advantages of lateral tinking:

  • Learn this higher form of thinking
  • Find solution to problems with the help of cross-linked think-strategies
  • Realize new projects with new ideas
  • Manage innovation as an everyday requirement

Focus of lateral thinking:

  • The concept of cross-linking logical thinking with creative thinking-strategies
  • The best strategies and think-tools, for finding new ideas, to concretize and realize
  • Swift solution to problems for constructive results
  • Methods of choice for ideas and the choice-filter
  • Evaluation of new ideas
  • Operationalization of ideas, steps for planning and implementation
  • The process of idea-management

من اليمين: المستشار نبيل الكزبري وسعادة السـفير محمد السـلوم ، السعودية وسعادة السـفير حسـام الحسـيني ، الأردن


واستهل اللقاء بكلمة ترحيبية ألقاها مدير الغرفة الاقتصـادية بفيينا، السيد هاينز فوللينجر Mag. Heinz Wollinger، بالنيابة عن الرئيس المهندس فالتر روك Dip.Ing. Walter Ruck أعرب فيها عن تقديره للعلاقات المتميزة بين النمسا والدول العربية. وأشار إلى ترحيب الغرفة الاقتصادية المحلية بفيينا بالإسهام في تعزيز هذه العلاقات وتطويرها بما يخدم المصالح الاقتصادية والتجارية للجانبين.


وفي كلمته خلال اللقاء أكد السيناتور دكتور ريتشارد شينتس Dr. Richard Schenz، رئيس غرفة التجارة العربية النمساوية، على العمق التاريخي للبحرين والذي يمتد إلى 6000 عام وما شهده هذه الفترة من احتكاك بالثقافات والحضارات المتعددة. ولفت إلى أن البحرين معروفة منذ القدم كمركز تجاري، كما أنها تتوفر فيها حاليا الشروط المثلى في محيطها من ناحية منظومة الضرائب.


ومن جانبه قدّم سفير النمسا لدى الكويت (والبحرين)، السيد أولريش فرانك Mag.Ulrich Frank عرضا حول الأوضاع السياسية في البحرين والانفتاح الذي تشهده البلاد، منوها في هذا الإطار إلى وجود أعضاء في البرلمان البحريني من المسيحيين واليهود. كما أن السلطات البحرينية منحت مؤخرا قطعة أرض لبناء كنيسة عليها.


وفي مداخلته خلال الملتقى تحدث السيد سبستيان غيرلاخ Sebastian Gerlach المدير بمجلس التنمية الاقتصادية في البحرين، عن الانفتاح الاقتصادي الذي تشهده مملكة البحرين، وأنها تُقيّم خلال الـ20عاما الأخير بأنها أكثر الدول العربية انفتاحا لإقامة شراكات واستعداد للتعاون الاقتصادي، علاوة على الحرية الضريبية التي تجعلها صاحبة أكثر السياسات الضريبية ليبرالية في العالم.




من اليسـار إلى اليمين: الدكتور أوسكار أنديسنير (غرفة الاقتصاد الاتحادية) ـ المهندس مضر الخوجة ـ سعادة السـفير أولريش فرانك ـ الكتورة غابرييلة فوهرير ـ الكتور ريتشـارد شـينتس ـ السيد فيرنير براونوك و السيد سـباستيان غيرلاخ


السيد فيرنر براونك Werner Braunöck الشريك المؤسس ومدير الاستثمار في شركةNarmo Capital والتي تتخذ من مملكة البحرين مقرا لها، تحدث من جانبه عن خبرته كمستثمر أجنبي في البحرين، مشيرا إلى أن قرار شركته بنقل مقرها إلى البحرين جاء بعد دراسات جدوى اقتصادية معمقة لعدد من الدول، حتى استقر الرأي على البحرين لعدة حقائق، أهمها أنها الدولة الأقل من ناحية تكاليف المعيشة مقارنة بالعواصم المالية العالمية، كما أنها الأولى من ناحية التسهيلات الضريبية.


وأدار الملتقى الأمين العام لغرفة التجارة العربية النمساوية، المهندس مضر الخوجه، والذي قدّم تعريفا بتاريخ مملكة البحرين قديما وحديثا حتى الاحتلال البريطاني، ثم انتهاء الحماية البريطانية على البحرين في عام 1969، كما أجرت البحرين استفتاء في عام 1970 تحت إشراف الأمم المتحدة صوت فيه البحرينيون لصالح بقاء البلاد عربية مستقلة عن إيران. ثم إعلان استقلال البحرين في 15 أغسطس 1971. ولفت إلى أن البحرين تعتبر الأولى بين دول الخليج التي شرعت في تعليم الفتيات وأقامت لهن أول مدرسة في المنطقة عام 1929. كما أنها أول دولة خليجية يتم اكتشاف النفط فيها أراضيها، وذلك في عام 1932.


وشـكر المهندس الخوجة السـيدة الدكتورة غابرييلة فوهرير مديرة قسم التجارة الخارجية في غرفة الاقتصاد المحلية بفيينا على التعاون والتنسيق لهذا الملتقى .



 وفي ختام الملتقى أتيحت الفرصة للتعارف والتشبيك بين أصحاب الأعمال والاقتصاديين والدبلوماسيين من الجانبين خلال بوفيه عشـاء من المأكولات الشـرقية و شمبانيا (فيلينغير رويال) المصنفة حلال والخالية من الكحول .
