Supporting Gulf Leaders’ Strategic Visions

The Middle East is full of ambition. The region’s political leaders have set out their visions – in Saudi Arabia, in the UAE and in Oman – including big plans for the financial sector. At Copylab, we understand and share their vision, and can support their strategy by helping organisations operating in these demographically young and vibrant markets to achieve their goals.

Copylab in the Gulf

Our team is led by John Holmes, Strategic Director for Asia and the Middle East. John has a career spanning more than 30 years and an enviable record of helping clients develop their business strategy and accelerate their growth. Supporting John is a team of talented English-language investment writers.

For our clients’ Arabic language needs, we have a partnership with Advert One, the Middle East’s largest investor relations (IR) communications agency. Based in Riyadh, the team led by Mustafa and Hassan has completed hundreds of financial-communications projects for large companies across the region.

In addition to our usual range of services, we help listed companies across the region with the writing of their annual reports. Our skillset – investment knowledge and copywriting expertise – is perfectly suited to this requirement. We have completed several projects for Middle Eastern companies who are forward thinking about their IR communications.
