Alpha1Corp’s Talal Malik praises Arabian future, Saudi Vision 2030

Global conglomerate Alpha1Corp said on April 30, 2018, that its Chairman and CEO Talal Malik had for the first time shared his full perspective on a potential future of the Arabia Peninsula, praising Saudi Arabia’s strategic plan, Vision 2030.

The global thought leadership article, ‘An Arabian Future‘  was published on April 27 in leading Saudi newspaper, the Saudi Gazette, and has been acclaimed by some of the Kingdom’s leading government, business, media and social figures.

“‘An Arabian Future’ is my first full perspective on the future of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia before and beyond 2030,” said Talal Malik, Chairman and CEO of Alpha1Corp, about the article published on the biennial anniversary of Saudi Vision 2030, which was originally launched on April 25, 2016.

The article commemorates 80 years since Mr. Malik’s grandfather negotiated between King Abdulaziz Al-Saud and HM British Government, since the discovery of oil in the Kingdom and 20 years since Mr. Malik’s work and career with the Kingdom and the Middle East began.

It also commemorates 10 years since Mr. Malik first joined McKinsey as its main senior management adviser in the Middle East from 2008-2013 and two years since the launch of Vision 2030 and Mr. Malik’s role advising the Kingdom’s Ministry of Energy, Industry and Minerals, Saudi Aramco and helping launch its colossal National Renewable Energy Programme.

On April 21, Talal Malik also published his global thought piece, ‘A new dawn for Arab cinema‘  on the history and future of Arab cinema in leading Saudi newspaper, Arab News, in his role as Chairman and CEO of global media and entertainment firm Alpha1Media.

Alpha1Corp commemorates landmark Madinah speech of CEO Talal Malik

Global conglomerate Alpha1Corp International said on 17 April 2018 it was commemorating the five-year anniversary of the first public speech by its Chairman and CEO, Talal Malik, in the City of Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah (‘The Illuminated Metropolis’) in Saudi Arabia.

Talal Malik was invited to speak on the topic of global corporate governance, organised under the Royal Patronage of the Emirate of Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah, Saudi Arabia’s General Investment Authority (SAGIA) and Malaysia’s World Islamic Economic Forum (WIFE), and attended by the former Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Sri Tun Musa Hitam (pictured) and the Governor of #Malaysia’s Central Bank, Bank_Negara.

In his speech, Talal Malik stated that Islam’s maxim on corporate governance can be defined as ‘caveat venditor’ (Latin for ‘let the seller beware’), compared to the ancient Roman maxim of ‘caveat emptor’ (Latin for ‘let the buyer beware’), which has become increasingly globally prevalent. The remarks marked the first time in many centuries that #Latin would have been spoken in a public address in Islam’s second Holy City.

The event was one of the first to held in the Emirate of Madinah following the appointment of HRH Prince Faisal bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud as the Governor of Madinah three months before, on 14 January 2013.

HRH Prince Faisal bin Salman, the son of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, completed his doctorate at St. Anthony’s College, University of Oxford, contemporaneous with Talal Malik, who was based at Pembroke College, University of Oxford.

Talal Malik on 11 April 2018 addressed the 2018 edition of the distinguished Top CEO forum, co-organised by INSEAD Business School, in Saudi Arabia on the plenary session, ‘A New Era’, about the strategic future direction of economies in the Middle East, focusing on rebalancing the labour market, GDP sector composition and infrastructure.

Global conglomerate Alpha1Corp International said on 11 April 2018 that its Chairman and CEO, Talal Malik, had addressed the 2018 edition of the distinguished Top CEO forum organised by INSEAD Business School and business magazine, Trends.

Mr. Malik spoke at the high-level business conference, held in Saudi Arabia, on the plenary session, ‘A New Era’, about the strategic future direction of economies in the Middle East, focusing on rebalancing the labour market, GDP sector composition and infrastructure.

‘There is an emergent need to balance the ratio between hard infrastructure and soft infrastructure,’ said Mr. Malik to the conference of CEOs, policymakers, investors and business executives.

‘As an example of hard infrastructure, the ultra-high speed Hyperloop is coming to the Arabian Peninsula, but it would be valuable to look at what the equivalent of the Hyperloop would be, for example, in terms of the ease of doing business?’

Mr. Malik’s plenary session was moderated by the award-winning British journalist, Frank Kane, formerly of The Financial Times, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph and The Observer. Mr. Kane appears in the official biography of Sir Richard Branson, the British billionaire entrepreneur who founded the Virgin Group, and chairs its space-travel company, Virgin Galactic, and its ultra-high-speed transport company, Virgin Hyperloop One.

The Top CEO forum was organised by INSEAD, recognised as the best global business school by the Financial Times, and Trends magazine, the international magazine for Arab affairs owned by Mediaquest.
