IDG in the Middle East

We have been working throughout the region since 2001, with clients from both the private and public sector.

Our work in the Middle East is centred around improving the performance of our clients through the development of their people.

We design and deliver high-quality development programmes aligned with the organisation’s goals, that deliver quantifiable business results. The intellectual content of our programmes is in part informed by our unique relationship with the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, which has a particular resonance throughout the region.

Our main business improvement focus in the Middle East has been on:

  • Leadership Development
  • Work Ethics
  • Team Building
  • SME Development
  • Youth Development

Our programmes provide bespoke solutions for clients to address their specific performance and development needs whilst creating local capability. Adults learn by doing not listening. Therefore our style of facilitation is experiential, leading to measurable and sustainable change of behaviour.

Our Clients

At IDG we see our clients as our partners and we are proud to have productive, ongoing relationships with highly respected organisations both in the public and private sectors. These include:

Our relationship with Royal Military Academy Sandhurst

IDG’s partnering agreement with Sandhurst gives us exclusive use of the Academy’s inspiring facilities and grounds. More importantly it enables us to access over 200 years of learning on leadership and embed that learning in our development programmes.

The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst is the centre of excellence in leadership for the British Army. Every British Army officer since the 1800’s has received their training in leadership skills and behaviours within its grounds. Sandhurst has a global reputation: four reigning Arab monarchs are graduates of Sandhurst and its affiliated colleges – King Abdullah of Jordan, King Hamad of Bahrain, Sheikh Tamim, Emir of Qatar and Sultan Qaboos of Oman.


“IDG helped to organise a team-building Away Day for the British Embassy, Amman. The feedback from staff after the event was very positive. Some commented that it had been the best Away Day ever.

The key element was the professionalism and focus that IDG brought to the event.”

Peter Millett
British Ambassador, British Embassy, Amman

“An industry first… As we move forward, we will seek to assist and drive improvements in the socio-work-ethical environment in the PDO contractor community.

PRISM… regularly assess gaps, opportunities and best practice in support of change management and a high performance environment.”

Raoul Restucci
Managing Director, Petroleum Development Oman (PDO).

“Our relationship with IDG has gone beyond that of supplier and IDG have become our trusted partners. They have created with us a first class development programme for our young talent. What we value most from IDG is their open and flexible approach to react to the developing needs of the participants on the programme and to the dynamic requirements of the business. IDG are now very much part of our team and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”

Nicola Cooper
HR Director, ALDAR
