2019 UKBCCI Business and Entrepreneur Excellence Awards

Dear Mr Rashid,

Thank you, Iqbal and all your wonderful team at UKBCCI for an outstanding awards dinner on Sunday evening.

It was a privilege for me and Cobra to participate.

Everything about the evening was so special and the awards were truly
inspirational. As I said to you if it is possible, this time was even
more impressive than the last awards. You must be so proud of what you
have achieved with UKBCCI - such a wonderful initiative promoting trade,
business, and investments between the UK and Bangladesh both ways.

I bumped into James Cleverley in Parliament today and he told me how
much he enjoyed and appreciated the evening.

It is always a pleasure working and interacting with you and I look
forward to continuing to do so in the years to come.

With warmest regards and best wishes,

Chairman, Cobra Beer Partnership

Award Judge





Dear Bajloor Rashid Bahi,

It was a real pleasure to be there this year and see how the platform you have created is getting better and better every year. So many talented people under one roof celebrating business success.

I wish you and the directors all the very  best  for the magnificent job you are doing and the support you are giving to the new generation of business builders.

And we all thoroughly enjoyed the UKBCCI programme.

With kind regards

Many thanks for your email.


I was about to send you a thank you note along with warm congratulations for delivering a wonderful event on 6th October. You bit me to it!


It indeed was a privilege to be one of the judges at UKBCCI Business & Entrepreneur Excellence Awards 2019 and get an opportunity to see the nominees and hear the winners and achievers and the speeches from you and others. They were all so insightful and inspiring! THANK YOU for your inspired vision and your continuous hard work to implement it.


The Gala Dinner was lavish and the eye-catching artistic performances were highly entertaining.


It was also encouraging to see the British Bangladeshis increasingly moving into diverse areas of entrepreneurship and excelling in them. Thank you for your energetic and valuable contribution towards positively changing the image of our community in Britain and beyond.


With very best wishes and kind regards to you, your colleagues and sponsors who made the event on 6th October something extraordinary to remember for a long time.


Yours sincerely

2017 UKBCCI Business and Entrepreneur Excellence Awards

Dear Mr Rashid,


I would like to congratulate you for hosting an outstanding event on 151h October 2017 at the London Hilton on Park Lane. The guests, including the many Members of Parliament, Bangladesh High Commissioner and other dignitaries, together with the Bangladeshi business community, were impressive indeed.

I must also compliment the flawlessly conducted programme, which was professional but had a personal

touch. Your opening address encapsulated the spirit of the UKBCCI Business & Entrepreneur Excellence Award


I hope to have the opportunity to see you when you are in Dhaka the next time.

Thank you once again for honouring me with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Warm regards,

Yours sincerely
