Films---Short and offbeat

IBG is creating a platform for short and offbeat films. There are a large number of short film makers, who have great ideas which they convert to celluloid. But most have no idea how to promote or popularize their work of passion. A platform would give them ‘voice’. IBG is inviting film makers to submit their creations, to be judged by a panel of film experts. The last date for this is 10th June. The event will be done on 21st June.

Birthdays : Every one has one birthday every year. (some have once in 4 years too). It’s a day when we again become kids. We want to get calls, messages, we hope for gifts, we go back to our childhood when our parents celebrated our birthdays. Mine is round the corner too, in june. Use the day to reflect on your life, the way you are leading it, the past, the future. Reflect on who your true friends are, do for others on the day, do for your family. Have a great fulfilling day.

The stocks markets are running full swing, No stopping. Its crossed

$2 trillion, which is 0.88% of GDP. One of the highest levels in the world. Its time to get into stocks in a small way and build up. we are looking at the biggest country bull run in history. Of course there will be ups and downs, so be careful in your decisions.

Event Calendar
for June 2017:
  1. Thursday 8th June IBG paid members only event at Intercontinental, Marine Drive
  2. Wednesday 21st June Entertainment Potboiler Networking event at Sucasa, Bandra West.




1. IBG conducted an action-packed event “IBG-UAE corridor” on 10th May at Intercontinental, with almost 200 people attending it.

With the growing economy, India is on the way to become one of the biggest economies in the world in next 10 years. It’s time for Indian businesses to extend beyond our borders and become internationalized. There is much to be said to have a leg outside the country. It helps in myriad ways.And to my mind, there is no better place than Dubai for Indians.



Our main speaker of this event was H.E. Mr. Zulfiquar Ghadiyali who is a CEO for the Private office of H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Khaled bin Ahmed Al hamed. He's also the Managing Director of Royal Diamond Group under the chairmanship of H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin khaled bin Ahmed Al Hamed from Abu Dhabi Royal Family.
