CNN International and McLaren Technology Group 
enter multi-year partnership ahead of 2015 Formula 1 season

CNN International and McLaren Technology Group 
enter multi-year partnership ahead of 2015 Formula 1 season

4133CNN International, the world’s leader in international news, and McLaren Technology Group announced today that CNN is confirmed as a new McLaren-Honda partner for the 2015 Formula 1 season and beyond.

The multi-year global partnership brings together two world-class pioneering brands, both of which have spent decades building a strong reputation for being first in their field. In a natural fit for both CNN International and McLaren Technology Group, each company operates in a dynamic, dizzyingly fast environment where success is judged as much by speed of response as by continual innovation and quality of product.

For the 2015 season, the partnership sees CNN’s branding appear on the front-wing endplates of the new McLaren-Honda MP4-30 Formula 1 car, which will be unveiled in an online launch on January 29th. It also allows for CNN’s use of McLaren’s soon-to-open thought leadership centre, based within the McLaren Technology Campus in Woking, Surrey, UK, from which CNN International will produce several programmes to be broadcast globally across its network.

The partnership comes at an exciting time for both brands – CNN has again been named the world’s number one international news brand and has won a clutch of awards including News Channel of the Year for the past two years from the Royal Television Society; McLaren heads into the 2015 Formula 1 World Championship with a new car, a new engine partner and the best driver line-up in Formula 1: world champions Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button.

The dynamic nature of the deal means that both parties see the potential to amplify the scope and scale of the partnership in the years to come, in areas such as sharing expertise and resources, cross-marketing their brands, and utilising networking and business relationships.

Rani Raad, Chief Commercial Officer, CNN International, said:

“This is a groundbreaking partnership between two trusted brands with a passion for high performance and continued innovation. Committed to being first, we share a mutual respect for each other’s operations – whether that’s the tenacity of CNN journalists in going to the heart of a story or McLaren’s forensic focus for every F1 race. With a shared global footprint and highly engaged audience, there’s a lot of expertise and best practice that we can both invest in this partnership.

“The added exposure CNN International will gain through our association with McLaren is part of an expansive consumer engagement initiative to capitalise on the power of our brand and consolidate our position as the world’s biggest international news brand. The additional business, broadcasting and cross-marketing opportunities made possible by this multi-year deal will forge a close relationship between two companies on the world stage.

“In CNN International’s 30th anniversary year, I will be incredibly proud to see the CNN brand on the new McLaren-Honda car when it lines up on the starting grid in Melbourne.”

Ron Dennis, Chairman and CEO, McLaren Technology Group, said:

“There is an inherent symmetry between McLaren and CNN that makes us perfectly attuned for partnership. Like McLaren, CNN is a tremendously powerful and influential global network, one that has spent decades pioneering the latest technologies and techniques in a relentless, unforgiving, fast-paced environment. I think we understand each other on many levels.

“Equally, we’ve each based a deep-rooted culture of success on our core values – our belief in the strength of teamwork and technology – yet our flexibility and dynamism permit us to move seamlessly and effortlessly in order further to push the boundaries of technology and exploration.

“The partnership between McLaren and CNN is unique in that it operates on a very broad scope. Our shared love of technology has united us: together we will pursue new opportunities far beyond the conventional scope of a Formula 1 partnership.

“I think the executives at CNN are as excited as we are about the potential of this relationship.”

DAXIUM released a new event app in the GCC

DAXIUM released a new event app in the GCC

446The French company Daxium introduces a new mobile application dedicated to the collection of visitors information with tablets at exhibition stands and during events. This new solution is on the way to support exhibiting companies, promotion agencies, organizers and any other professional event planners in the collection of contact details, events feedback or other specific demands.

Daxium Middle East introduces this new mobile application as the company considers exhibitions and events as an integral part of business here in the UAE, providing opportunities for networking and meeting potential clients. Upon proposals for a solution that would simplify the collection of visitors information, Daxium is offering a new service in the UAE that will enhance the visitor data collection process during events and exhibitions.

Companies often struggle to gather visitor information with paper forms at events and exhibitions, as they require visitors to sit inside the stand or wait during a busy period. With tablets, exhibitors become mobile, resulting in more interactivity. Visitors now have the choice of registering their information with an exhibitor equipped with a tablet or inputting their information independently using tablets fixed around the stand.

This service aims to double the amount of visitor contacts collected at events, and eliminate errors and misinterpretations created through the use of paper forms. Visitors information obtained during the event can later be extracted onto an excel spreadsheet at the click of a button, saving time and increasing accuracy.

This new launched solution will be showcased during the Gitex Technology Week, from October 12th to 16th 2014, at Dubai World Trade Centre.

According to Aymeric de Guerre, Middle East Area Manager, “there are many exhibitions in the Middle East so we decided to propose this new service. In only 24 hours, we create your customized digital form on tablets to collect visitor data”.

Then, De Guerre specified “information collected offline on the tablets at the exhibition stand can be extracted in one click to Excel”.

Brand image and visitor experience are enhanced through the use of new technologies, particularly in the UAE. Moreover, digital contact forms on the device will be quicker and easier to fill for the visitor.

Application flexibility allows Daxium to create and implement digital forms specific to your needs in only 24 hours. In the event of future exhibitions, the company provides the possibility of independence by training a member of your team to create future forms without extra service cost.

Daxium has launched a proper pricing package for this service, allowing customers to satisfy short-term needs.

The app will be available on Smartphone and Tablets (iPads, Samsung, Windows)

Daxium is currently developing an Arabic version, which will be available on the beginning of October.

Al Jazeera moves its satellite broadcasting from Arabsat to Es’hailsat

Al Jazeera moves its satellite broadcasting from Arabsat to Es’hailsat

4109TV viewers using Arabsat are urged to change the frequencies on their settop boxes as Al Jazeera Media Network will permanently terminate broadcasting via satellites Badr-4 and Badr-5 starting January 1, 2015. New channel bundles will be broadcasted through satellite Es’hailSat 1.

Al Jazeera commented that the move to Es’hailSat is part of the network’s efforts to provide its viewers in the MENA region with the best coverage with the latest technologies in uninterrupted satellite TV broadcasting.

Al Jazeera channels have seen deliberate jamming in the wake of its coverage of the Arab uprisings.

Commenting on the matter, Ibrahim Nassar, Manager of RF & Teleport Engineering at Al Jazeera, said: “Al Jazeera has carefully investigated and considered the intentional jamming of its signal in recent years. The jamming is part of an orchestrated and multifaceted campaign to block the network’s signal and internet websites from its viewers”.

Es’hailSat covers the same geographic area as Arabsat and provides viewers with secure and uninterrupted transmission with more powerful abilities to hold off signal interference attempts. Nassar added that the move to Es’hailSat does not require viewers to adjust their satellite dish location or the satellite receiver. All it takes is to set the receiver to Es’hailSat 1 with Txp Frequency: 11604; Polarization: Horizontal; FEC: 3/4; Symbol Rate: 27500. A video that demonstrates the process is available on the following link:

Nilesat viewers can still watch Al Jazeera channels in the GCC, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Yemen, Sudan and Djibouti via Nilesat (EAST) 11636 V, FEC: 3/4 and Symbol Rate 27500; and in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Mauritania via Nilesat (WEST) 10992 V, FEC: 3/4 and Symbol Rate 27500.

The move to Es’hailSat includes Al Jazeera Arabic, Al Jazeera English, Al Jazeera Mubasher, Al Jazeera Mubhaser-Misr, Al Jazeera Documentary Channel, and Al Jazeera America.

Monster introduces New Tools in Saudi Arabia to Find Better Jobs and Talent Online

Monster introduces New Tools in Saudi Arabia to Find Better Jobs and Talent Online, one of the leading online and career recruitment solutions provider, today introduced a new suite of features in Saudi Arabia that are set to revolutionise the country’s online employment landscape. Monster’s new intelligent Mobile App and Professional Networking features, created exclusively for stronger job and talent search, empowers job seekers and recruiters to identify the best opportunities and connect on the go.

The Professional Networking for jobs features introduce the ability to engage with peers, recruiters and companies. Job seekers can import external contacts, keep in touch with relevant career insights, follow and receive updates from recruiters and companies, maintain scores for job-related activities, grow Monster connections and increase visibility in the talent marketplace.

Recruiters can tap into Monster’s Professional Networking features to identify the best talent for their roles. They can set up Recruiter Profiles to share and post jobs, add company updates, view follower networks and connect with candidates. Through the interface, recruiters have access to a dashboard with activity summaries and recruitment insights.

“You are not always looking for a job but there is a big possibility that you may miss an opportunity you always desired while you were not looking,” says Modi.

“Smart job recommendations from the Monster Mobile App and Professional Networking features will alert, connect and update you, essentially working on your behalf while you are occupied with your life. From web to mobile, provides companies, recruiters and seekers in Saudi Arabia with customised solutions using the world’s most advanced technology to find better access and better connections for better jobs – anywhere and anytime. We also understand the challenges employers face, and Monster Analytics will provide them intelligence to make more informed decisions.”

Monster’s new features were created to address gaps within the recruitment industry. In the company’s year-long research and development process after launching mPower Search, Monster conducted a need-gap analysis and found that job seekers needed a new way to better find jobs and stay connected to the job market, whilst employers needed to better connect with the right talent at the best time. Passive jobseekers missed out on suitable job opportunities whilst they were busy with their day-to-day lives. Monster also identified that there was a need to provide a professional network platform offering better connections because job seekers typically reach out to peers, seniors, recruiters or organisations to find jobs.

To help recruiters and organisations make informed decisions for better human capital management, the company has also designed Monster Analytics – a dynamic tool that grants organisations access to data on the experience levels, domains and companies that talent transitions to and from. Employers can seek talent more effectively with these insights and develop a firmer understanding of the region’s recruitment landscape.

In addition to Saudi Arabia and the Middle East, the Monster Mobile App and Professional Networking features are being rolled out across India and also Southeast Asia in Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and Hong Kong.

Posted in Social MediaComments (0) wins at the Arabia CSR Awards wins at the Arabia CSR Awards, the Middle East’s first corporate volunteering website, has been awarded a special recognition prize at the Arabia CSR Awards. The award is a recognition of the efforts made by the founders of Sharek to support corporate volunteering in Egypt and raise awareness of how collaboration between the public and private sectors can benefit the country’s civil society.

Sharek allows civil society organizations (CSOs) or start-ups to post volunteer opportunities on the platform for corporate employees to choose from a wide range of options that match their respective interests and skills, be it teaching and translating to finance and technology-related projects. To facilitate this, CSOs and start-ups specify the skills, time frame and number of the volunteers needed and the employees get to search according to the expertise category, date and time that suits them best.

“Sharek is an example of what can be done to benefit society through partnerships that leverage on the skils and abilities of the private sector,” said Shereen Mady, Project Manager, “Sharek is the first corporate volunteering site in the region, and the response we’ve had from both corporates who wish to partner with Sharek and civil society organizations who are looking to leverage off the skills and experiences of our volunteers has been remarkable. Programs like Sharek can result in a real change in societies across the Middle East region.”

Sharek was spearheaded by three private sector companies known for their pioneering approach to corporate social responsibility, Procter & Gamble, PricewaterhouseCoopers and IBM, with social platform designers Social Fruits. The project, which was begun over three years back, was launched in May of this year.

Sharek has also been supported by business associations including the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, the Egyptian Businessmen’s Association and the Egyptian Junior Business Association, and both national and international organizations such as United Nations Volunteers, the United Nations Development Programme, the Egyptian Corporate Responsibility Center and the Industrial Modernization Center. Sharek is incubated by Nahdet El Mahrousa, a Cairo-based non-governmental organization that is focused on social entrepreneurship.

The Arabia CSR Awards aim to highlight CSR best practices and showcase the achievements of public and private companies in enhancing their sustainability performance to have a larger and more positive impact on society.
