Test drive Phantom * by visiting rolls-roycemotorcars-singapore.com<br />

Official fuel economy figures for the Rolls-Royce Phantom.<br />

NEDC: Emissions Combined 329-328 g/km and Fuel Consumption Combined 19.5-19.6 mpg / <strong>14</strong>.5-<strong>14</strong>.4 l/100km<br />

WLTP: Emissions Combined 356-341 g/km and Fuel Consumption Combined 18.0-18.8 mpg / 15.7-15.0 l /100km.<br />

Figures are for comparison purposes and may not reflect real-life driving results, which depend on a number of factors including the accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather,<br />

driving styles and vehicle load. All figures were determined according to a new test (WLTP). <strong>The</strong> CO 2<br />

figures were translated back to the outgoing test (NEDC) and will be used to calculate<br />

vehicle tax on first registration. Only compare fuel consumption and CO 2<br />

figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedure.<br />

GRAYS<br />

Part of the Terra Group, Grays has through time,<br />

become one of the major players in the distribution<br />

sector in Mauritius. Known for its constant<br />

reach for excellence and quality in each of its endeavours,<br />

Grays has continuously strived to offer to the<br />

Mauritian public a wide range of products and services.<br />

From wines, spirits, food brands to personal care and<br />

pharmaceutical products, Grays aims at satisfying the<br />

different needs of its customers by proposing the distribution<br />

of not only its own manufactured brands but<br />

also internationally recognised brands. All of this accompanied<br />

by a constant quest for service excellence.<br />

Founded in 1935, Grays has been historically linked to<br />

not only the production of high-quality rum but also<br />

to the distribution of wines and spirits. <strong>The</strong> company<br />

imports several luxury brands such as Dom Perignon,<br />

Moet et Chandon, Hennessy, Jack Daniel’s and Glenfiddich.<br />

Since its creation, Grays has evolved greatly through<br />

a pronounced diversification of its offering. Today, the<br />

company has 4 specific activities:<br />

- Food<br />

- Personal and Homecare<br />

- Wine<br />

- Spirits<br />

Over and above those 4 different activities, Grays has<br />

developed a network of retail brands around the island:<br />

20/vin, L’Occitane en Provence, M.A.C, Cocoon<br />

and Colors.<br />

Deeply rooted in the Mauritian landscape, Grays has<br />

always worked towards a strong social capital and has<br />

throughout the years advocated for a sustainable and<br />

inclusive growth.<br />





Lady<br />

Lady is inspired by the great style icons - Coco<br />

Chanel, the Duchess of Windsor, Diana Vreeland<br />

and many others. Charming, witty, intelligent, they<br />

created unique personal styles, with European,<br />

Latin, Oriental influences. Roberto’s Lady wears<br />

a necklace with eyes protecting and blessing and<br />

her overlapping faces speak to her ambiguous<br />

personality. Lady is a rich and evocative work,<br />

her elongated face with brilliant eyes echoing<br />

the sensuous elegance of Modiligiani, who was<br />

deeply impressed with the Egyptian sculptures in<br />

the Louvre which he transalated into his unique<br />

idiom, but the background of the young Leonardo<br />

Da Vinci’s brilliant paintings ‘<strong>The</strong> Annunciation’<br />

and the ‘Madonna of the Rocks’, brings to mind the<br />

most famous of all faces of ambiguity - the Mona<br />

Lisa. <strong>The</strong> exquisite confluence of past and present<br />

gives Lady a mysterious and mystical resonance.

Super-premium Italian beer brand Peroni Nastro<br />

Azzurro has launched a new bottle and glass<br />

design, for the first time in over a decade. Re-affirming<br />

their position as a stylish beer in the world,<br />

the new bottle and glass has style at its heart with a<br />

sleek new design drawing inspiration from the brand’s<br />

rich Italian heritage.<br />

Since its launch in 2005, Peroni Nastro Azzurro has<br />

been synonymous with style and has become one of<br />

the most reputable beers enjoyed across the world.<br />

For over a decade, the iconic bottle and glass has<br />

led the way with an injection of Italian style, craftsmanship<br />

and heritage for people to enjoy around the<br />

world.<br />

<strong>The</strong> new design continues this legacy, and has transformed<br />

with a clean, elegant shape and sophisticated<br />

curves. <strong>The</strong> signature of Giovanni Peroni – the founding<br />

father of Peroni – is engraved on the bottle. <strong>The</strong><br />

re-styled logo has evolved to a hexagonal shape – a<br />

shape that features throughout the new design – and<br />

draws inspiration from the original Birra Peroni crest<br />

of years gone by. Subtle nods to Peroni Nastro Azzurro’s<br />

heritage can be found throughout, including a<br />

hand drawn maize icon, highlighting the high-quality<br />

Italian ingredients.<br />

<strong>The</strong> minimalist new design extends to the glassware,<br />

which has been created specifically to enhance the<br />

beer-drinking experience. <strong>The</strong> rejuvenation of the<br />

iconic glass features a tall, elegant waisted profile<br />

with a new hexagonal base, matching the shape of the<br />

new logo.<br />

<strong>The</strong> new 330ml Peroni Nastro Azzuro bottle made its<br />

debut in Singapore at the lifestyle beach event Peroni<br />

Sunset Cinema in May 2019.<br />

A mainstay of the special events world, zkipster was founded in 2009 in<br />

Zurich, Switzerland by co-founders David Becker and Daniel Dessauges.<br />

What started as a guest list app to streamline the check-in process for<br />

social events grew into the leading event management software for highend<br />

events worldwide.<br />


“What distinguishes zkipster is that we build our platform directly with<br />

and for the best events in the world,” explains co-founder David Becker.<br />

“Typically these events happen across the arts, fashion, entertainment,<br />

charity and the luxury worlds.”<br />

zkipster’s cloud-based event management software is built to manage the<br />

journey of guests before, during and after an event. “We help hosts understand<br />

their data and help them create curated guest lists, send out effective<br />

invitation campaigns, run a flawless and secure check-in process, and<br />

analyze the performance of each event afterwards.”<br />

Since the needs of invitation-only events can be broad, the platform’s professional<br />

tools support seated events with easy table charts, VIP events<br />

with guest pictures built into the app, and networking events with on-site<br />

name badge printing.<br />

“We power more than 40,000 events and have dedicated teams in the US,<br />

Europe, Asia and now in Australia,” says Becker. “We are thrilled to partner<br />

with luxury brands in Australia and help them bring to life the pedigree of<br />

events that give this region its excellent reputation.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> Nigeria is delighted to be a<br />

part of the Financial Times Africa Summit 2019.<br />

<strong>The</strong> annual event hosted by the Financial Times<br />

will take place on 13-<strong>14</strong> October 2019, at the prestigious<br />

Claridge’s Hotel in Mayfair. We will be hosting a<br />

Drinks Reception at the same venue.<br />

<strong>The</strong> FT Africa Summit, now in its 6th year, is a well-attended<br />

event, where Presidents, Senior government<br />

officials, Business leaders and Senior level executives<br />

from Banking, Financial Services, Consumer Goods<br />

and Technology companies, consultants, lawyers, accountants,<br />

advisors and more, come together to discuss<br />

current business affairs in key African countries.<br />

Speakers from the 2018 Summit included Aliko Dangote;<br />

President of Dangote Group and ranked by<br />

Forbes magazine as the richest man in Africa, Yemi<br />

Osinbajo; Vice President of Federal Republic of Nigeria,<br />

and numerous other high-profile personalities such as<br />

Tony Blair; former Prime Minister of Great Britain and<br />

See below extracts from the Agenda:<br />

‘Sub-Saharan Africa boasts several major oil producers, including Nigeria, Angola and the Republic of Congo<br />

and a number of emerging gas producers including Mozambique, Tanzania and Ghana. Developing Africa’s<br />

energy endowment is key to increasing prosperity and living standards across the continent. Commodity<br />

traders have historically played a key role in Africa, helping to finance state-backed oil producers and the fuel<br />

that domestic refiners cannot supply. In this panel, industry experts discuss the outlook for energy in Africa,<br />

focusing on the challenges and opportunities in this dynamic and fast-changing market.’<br />

‘For centuries Africa has been seen as a continent to exploit. Even today, many commentators tend to look at<br />

Africa as a battleground on which superpower rivalries – increasingly those of China and the US – are playing<br />

out. This year, Donald Trump, the US president, more than doubled the budget of the Overseas Private Investment<br />

Corporation to $60bn with an explicit aim of combating what some in Washington describe as China’s<br />

“predatory” action on the continent. This panel will examine the true nature of those rivalries and, more importantly,<br />

seek to flip the debate. What do African countries want – and what do they not want – from their<br />

overseas investors and partners? How are they seeking to forge an international policy on their own terms?’<br />

Just a few months ago, timepiece<br />

Vacheron Constantin has called upon the Arianee consortium to activate and<br />

deploy its digital certification via Blockchain technology, announced on May<br />

20th 2019. This authentication, which has been in effect on the watches in<br />

the Maison’s Les Collectionneurs collection since May 15th, offers customers an<br />

unparalleled certification and traceability service, with the ongoing objective of<br />

combating counterfeiting.<br />

As the Richemont group’s pilot company in the implementation of digital watch<br />

certification, Vacheron Constantin opted to work with Arianee to find a guarantee<br />

and authentication solution based on data protection and customer anonymity.<br />

By virtue of its status as an association created in 2019, the Arianee project’s approach<br />

to Blockchain takes the form of a decentralised and independent protocol,<br />

thereby giving watch owners the assurance of neutrality.<br />

According to Guillaume Boilot, Chief Operating Officer Vacheron Constantin:<br />

“by announcing the digitisation of its certificates of authenticity, our company is<br />

evolving with the times, as ever at the service of its customers. Through Blockchain<br />

technology and in partnership with Arianee, we offer them real security<br />

regarding the authenticity of their watches.”<br />

With Arianee, the use of cryptographic technology and the decentralised characteristics<br />

of Blockchain technology, Vacheron Constantin wishes to evaluate the<br />

possibility of creating a standard protocol for the digital certification of objects<br />

that could be used by all luxury stakeholders.<br />

Pierre-Nicolas Hurstel, CEO Arianee, added: “We are proud to have been able to<br />

allow Vacheron Constantin to issue the certificate of authenticity using Blockchain<br />

technology. Digital identities will transform the way we own valuable assets<br />

and Arianne couldn’t dream of a better first step than this pilot program as we<br />

continue on our path to building a global standard.”<br />

Arianee is one of the first concrete Blockchain applications available to end consumers.<br />

This open source solution has been designed to give each object an unforgeable,<br />

durable, secure and transferable digital identity. Each watch registered<br />

on the Arianee protocol is given a certificate in addition to the traditional paper<br />

authentication. This consists of a digital passport with several innovative features:<br />

it can be transferred from one owner to another; it creates an anonymous link<br />

between the owner and Vacheron Constantin; and it is open as well as connected,<br />

thus enabling its owner to insure the model, declare it lost or stolen, as well as<br />

share or prove its ownership.<br />

Angela Au-Yeung, Chief Digital Officer Vacheron Constantin, explains: “This certification<br />

creates bridges and interactions between customers, their watches and<br />

our Maison. By securing via Blockchain, we can now track our products throughout<br />

their life cycle and communicate with their owners without asking them to<br />

compromise their anonymity.”<br />

Simon Johnson has recently announced the release<br />

of True Honey Co.’s Manuka Honey range,<br />

available for purchase on their online store. True<br />

Honey Co. is a rare and precious honey sourced from<br />

New Zealand, each region’s climate and landscape<br />

contributes to this honey’s rich, complex flavour<br />

characteristics.<br />

<strong>The</strong> True Honey Co. was launched in 2016 to sell only<br />

authentic, premium New Zealand Mānuka honey.<br />

Built on a high beekeeper to hive ratio and transparent<br />

relationships with landowners, the company only<br />

places hives in dense stands of Mānuka bush deep<br />

within New Zealand’s remote back country – making<br />

exceptional products, prized by honey lovers<br />

worldwide.<br />

a sugar molecule found in most honeys in small quantities.<br />

At True Honey Co. Each batch of Manuka honey<br />

is tested, with the majority MGO up to 100x higher<br />

than the standard honey of today.<br />

<strong>The</strong> exception to this is the ‘Rare Harvest’ which is<br />

independently certified at an unprecedented 1,700+<br />

MGO, 31+ UMFTM.<br />

True Honey Co. is New Zealand owned, harvested and<br />

operated ‘from bee to you’.<br />

Deliciously good Manuka honey from New Zealand’s<br />

most remote, pristine locations.<br />

– True Honey Co.<br />

Just as important was looking after the honeybees<br />

& so their hive of industry grew to include clever<br />

beekeepers, and artisan honey makers to make sure<br />

each pot is delicious with the quality expected from<br />

high MGO rated Manuka honey.<br />

This raw natural bounty comes from deep<br />

within wild, remote bush country – the<br />

taste is a little untamed<br />

too – rich, resinous<br />

& bittersweet.<br />

Today most honey’s<br />

contain a naturally<br />

occurring hydrogen<br />

peroxide (HPA). That<br />

‘something else’ is<br />

methylglyoxal (MGO),<br />

Impeccable blue skies, bright<br />

sunshine and temperatures exceeding<br />

30 degrees provided<br />

the perfect setting for the “hottest”<br />

Diplomatic Council summer<br />

celebration ever. More than 150<br />

DC members and guests experienced<br />

an unforgettable evening full<br />

of highlights enjoying the fantastic<br />

ambience of a royal castle – above<br />

all, it was an evening with beautiful<br />

encounters, lots of conversations<br />

and joy and pleasure.<br />

A clear commitment to international<br />

organisations<br />

H.E. Ambassador Buddhi Athauda,<br />

Diplomatic Council co-founder,<br />

currently residing in Paris with<br />

accreditation to France, Monaco,<br />

Andorra and UNESCO, praised the<br />

global organisations such as the European<br />

Union or the United Nations<br />

for the relevant and world-changing<br />

achievements they made in<br />

the past decades. As a matter of<br />

fact, problems and crisis of global<br />

dimensions can only be solved<br />

by joint efforts. Secretary-General<br />

Hang Nguyen emphasized that<br />

members of the Diplomatic Council<br />

want to be part of a society that<br />

does not ignore, but respects; that<br />

does not exclude but includes; that<br />

does not start wars but tries to find<br />

peaceful solutions for the sake of all<br />

people.<br />

A new addition to the Diplomatic<br />

Council Board of Presidents<br />

H.E. Ambassador Gordan Grlic<br />

Radman, Ambassador of Croatia to<br />

Germany and the first laureate of<br />

the Public Diplomacy Award, was<br />


Members<br />

Affairs<br />

ceremoniously admitted to the<br />

Diplomatic Council Board of Presidents<br />

which is the most important<br />

body of the Diplomatic Council. On<br />

behalf of his country Croatia, which<br />

is a strong defender of the European<br />

Union, he delivered a passionate<br />

speech on the vision and values and<br />

the future of Europe.<br />

Croatian Rock Tenor<br />

Croatia as this year’s partner country<br />

was worthily presented by the<br />

Croatian tenor Silvio D’Anza. He is<br />

known as the pop star among tenors.<br />

He blends the charm of a classical<br />

tenor and the coolness of a<br />

pop star like no other. Our Croatian<br />

friends also spoiled all guests with<br />

selected Croatian delicacies and<br />

fine Croatian wines and liquors.<br />

Adobe wins Diversity Award<br />

A further highlight on the evening<br />

program was the announcement<br />

of the 2019 Diversity Award winner<br />

jointly bestowed upon by Diplomatic<br />

Council and its member<br />

Great Place to Work. <strong>The</strong> Award is<br />

given annually and the winner is<br />

selected amongst Germany’s 100<br />

best employers with the best diversity<br />

management. This year’s<br />

<strong>The</strong> world’s most famous theatres<br />

exhibition was organized by our<br />

represented by its CEO Dr Arne<br />

Freiherr von Neubeck who also<br />

provided more details about the<br />

pictures later in the evening.<br />

Food, Apparel, Daily Life – things<br />

are not moving without logistics<br />

Melanie Prinz, CEO of Beeline Logistics,<br />

already pointed out the importance<br />

of logistics during the Executive<br />

Club. In the evening Beeline<br />

sponsored a stand and presented<br />

itself to the curious audience. Most<br />

of us do not realize how much we<br />

depend on logistics. Our current<br />

world would not be the way it is<br />

without modern logistics – starting<br />

from food over apparel to all devices<br />

of our daily lives – nothing would<br />

be available without logistics!<br />

Establishing new contacts, deepening<br />

existing relationships<br />

Following the official program, there<br />

was plenty of time for all members<br />

and guests to mix and mingle and<br />

enjoy the excellent summer barbecue<br />

of the 5-star castle hotel. New<br />

contacts were made while fellow<br />

members met again and deepened<br />

their relationships. Many celebrated<br />

at the famous Jimmy’s bar until<br />

late at night.<br />
