PRESS RELEASE: Specialist B2B PR & communications agency Dragonbridge Communications completes commercial registration and opens Middle East hub office in Bahrain Financial Harbour.
"It's good to be back! I'm delighted that Dragonbridge Communications has just been awarded its Commercial Registration Certificate by the Kingdom of Bahrain.
I ran an agency in Bahrain from 2009-12 before returning to London and, of course, I have stayed in touch with the many friends and contacts I made at the time. It has always been my vision, as Dragonbridge grows, to re-establish a formal presence in the Kingdom to act as our Middle East hub, with a very experienced colleague Claudia Hardt looking after business there. This grows our international footprint and complements our team in London, New York, Shanghai and Tokyo”
Dragonbridge Communications MD Bern Guly.
Dragonbridge now has offices in the Bahrain Financial Harbour, managed by Claudia Hardt, and are is already responding to enquiries. Based in Bahrain and with regional responsibility for the Gulf region, Claudia has more than 20 years’ experience as a specialist communicator in both the corporate and the consumer sectors, including some 14 years’ experience working in the Gulf region.
“The Gulf region still presents a wealth of opportunity for businesses and also for a company with the range and expertise that an international agency like Dragonbridge can offer. I look forward to supporting the agency’s business presence and being the “boots on the ground” here and delivering competitive advantage in the Gulf region for our clients – it really is the only way to business in this part of the world.”
Claudia Hardt, Head of Business, Middle East for Dragonbridge

Change is coming at many levels - nationally, regionally, and globally - and consequently we believe that this year will be a fundamentally important time for many companies as they plan their strategy for future growth. As a business, we understand the challenges faced by business owners and communications professionals, so we know that a lot will be riding on how companies adapt and retain a leadership position, at the same time meeting challenges such as replacing face-to-face communication, increasingly aggressive competition, digitalisation, business transformation and talent retention – to name but a few!
Dragonbridge is all about connecting people and businesses worldwide through powerful communications.
