I first went to Iran to speak 18 months ago under the auspices of Sepehr Tarverdian and his company Hamayesh Farazan. Sepehr is the very best translator in Iran and used to work for the President and decided to use his talents to set up conferences featuring top international speakers.
That first event I went to with two other speakers had around 150 delegates and was a little disorganised - but good fun.
I have just been back - this time with seven other speakers - to speak at Sepehr's "World Management Forum" which was held in a magnificent conference hall, very professionally organised with every facility and 1200 delegates!
So a GOLDEN HELICOPTER AWARD has to go to SEPEHR TARVERDIAN and HAMAYESH FARAZAN for their fantastic progress and service to the Iranian business community.
