First for Bahrain
If you’re a fan of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, you’ll be aware of Robin Sharma, inspirational speaker and the go-to guy for Fortune 500 organisations. His ‘Lead Without A Title’ message has gathered a global following that includes celebrity CEOs, celebrated entrepreneurs and many of the corporate elite as well as workers from every imaginable industry. He’s making his first ever public appearance in Bahrain hosted by the Bahrain Institute for a half-day seminar based on his international bestseller, The Leader Who Had No Title.

Marry me?
Ladies, it’s leap year so if your man is being a little recalcitrant in the proposal stakes, now’s your chance. You can pop the question on February 29 and if he refuses there are all sorts of consequences – in the UK apparently fines range from a kiss to a silk gown. If your reluctant beau is Danish, he must buy you 12 pairs of gloves and Finn commitmentphobes have to cough up for the fabrics for a skirt – wow, it’s almost worth asking just so you can get turned down, you’ll be kitted out for the whole year.
