Giving back to the community by Julia Catherineau

 

Giving back to the community

Tis the season to think pink now more than ever before!

In the various fund raising and charity events held across Malta recently, one company that caught my eye in their efforts to give back to children’s cancer organisation has been MBR Publication Limited, publishers of some of Malta’s premier business publications, among which one finds the Malta Business Review, the Accountant and MAINSAIL. Above and beyond, MBR Publications Ltd are also at the forefront of MICE and gala award event organisations, having pioneered Malta’s Best Entrepreneur of the Year Awards for the past seven years, Malta’s Best in Business Awards, Malta International Boats & Yachting Awards and Malta’s iGaming Excellence Awards. These prestigious and highly successful events have made the MBR logo and brand a household name of respect earning them kudos and a strong reputation for organising some of the biggest gala award  shows ever hosted in Malta by a local company.

Not only do they go above and beyond what we may predictably see in action during the forthcoming month of July, I chose this company mainly because they hit the closest to home in the lives of everyday people by what they do and how they do it! From what we wear to what we eat and even to how we travel and check our Facebook statuses, one can’t help but to be tickled pink with how they give back to the community – and continually keep on giving.

“In 2014, we lighted one of our corporate events pink to help raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research in conjunction with the Breast Cancer Foundation Malta. In 2015, we added the Community Chest Fund and HE Madame Louise Colerio Preca, the President of Malta’s signature on the award certification in recognition of her dedication to help children and patients suffering of cancer,” told us Martin Vella, Managing Director of MBR Publications Ltd.

Since then MBR Publications did not look back and there’s something about adding a little pop of pink to your wardrobe that makes you stand out and in 2016/17, the company joined up with Puttinu Cares encouraging that we “live in pink” with their flagship publication the Malta Business Review adding the pink colour fund raising campaign. E News anchor and breast cancer survivor Giuliana Rancic, has been the role model for the company to follow, and on each collection the company has been able to collect from each of their gala awards they added on a 25% bonus on the amount collected for the donation.

Recently, the company organised Malta’s iGaming Excellence Awards and collected a sum of money, topped by 25% from the companies proceeds of the event. Cometh end of May, following the event, and Martin Vella went to visit the Rainbow Ward at the Oncology Center in Mater Dei Hospital with a cheque of Euro 1,500.00 which he handed to Mr Rennie Zerafa and Angele Cuschieri of Puttinu Cares.
Mr Vella stated that MBR Publications will continue to offer its support to Puttinu Cares: “The company and its employees firmly believe in Puttinu Cares’ right cause and we are confident that through the development and inclusion of our new mobile application, the general public will be able to get closer to Puttinu Cares and better understand its important role in our society.”

MBR Publications supplement its donation by additional funds raised throughout this year through various other activities organised by the company. For the past five years MBR Publications has been supporting other organisations namely L-Istrina and the Malta Community Chest Fund.

 

Saving BIG on exports

TR806RGBExasperated.  This is the feeling many of the local shipping executives of exporting companies used to feel when searching for a reliable but at the same time cost-effective forwarding solution for their export business.  It is very easy to find reliable and competitive freight forwarders with regards importations but as far as exports go, there always seemed to be much less options on the market.  This resulted in very high costs compared to imports and less than satisfactory transit times resulting in the local manufacturing exporting companies having an even tougher time competing in the competitive global market.

The Big Data

Big-Data-23by Denise De Gaetano

With one of the top spots retained for the request of Facebook personal data per capita by the Maltese government, it is becoming more evident that Malta is adjusting to the big data revolution. We no longer can keep much of our lives personal. With every supermarket transaction, Facebook and Twitter login and discount card usage, our personal data, buying habits, posts, photos, likes and chats, we reveal our lives to help companies and governments, achieve the two Ms: Monitoring and Monetization.
