Introducing the Breitling Surfers Squad With Kelly Slater, Stephanie Gilmore, and Sally Fitzgibbons – Together With a Thrilling New Partnership

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

MIAMI, March 26, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Breitling recently announced its squad concept. This imaginative idea involves creating three-person groups (the squads) whose members – all true masters in their respective professions – forge strong bonds and work together toward a common goal. Their shared endeavors will be presented in Breitling’s advertising campaigns. Breitling is now delighted to reveal the members of its Surfers Squad, who, like their Explorers Squad counterparts, reflect the brand’s dynamic values: action, purpose, and pioneering spirit.

KELLY SLATER

Breitling’s connection to the oceans is part of its extraordinary legacy. Its diver’s watches, including the iconic Superocean, are among the world’s most highly regarded. The amazing Surfers Squad and new partners, who are completely committed to maintaining clean oceans and beaches, are perfect expressions of our passion for water, which, along with air and land, are Breitling’s thematic pillars.

As Georges Kern, the CEO of Breitling, points out:

“We believe in the power of a team, the strength of a group, and the mutual identification of a common target, which ultimately leads to success. With our squad of three champion surfers, who are also some of the world’s leading advocates for the health of our oceans and beaches, we have a formidable team and some amazing shared goals.”

We are pleased to unveil the three impressive masters of the waves who are the members of our Breitling Surfers Squad:

Stephanie Gilmore
Australia’s Stephanie Gilmore is one of the true stars of surfing. She is a professional surfer and has won the World Championships on the Women’s ASP World Tour six times. Stephanie’s surfing career got off to an early start. By the time she was 17, she was entering international events. She qualified for the Women’s ASP World Tour in 2007 and went on to win the first of her six World Championships title. She was inducted into the Surfers’ Hall of Fame and won the Laureus World Action Sportsperson of the Year Award in 2010.

Sally Fitzgibbons
Australian Sally Fitzgibbons was a prolific athlete in a range of sports but had her first significant professional surfing results at the age of 14, when she became the youngest surfer to win an ASP Pro Junior event. She continued to set records throughout her junior years, with important wins in Australasia, Brazil, and Portugal, where she won the first of two World Junior Championships titles. Sally qualified for the World Surfing Tour in 2009, finishing in the top five a total of nine times, and has been runner-up in the World Championships three times, achieving ten WSL World Tour victories.

Kelly Slater
American Kelly Slater is the most successful surfer of all time. He won the World Surf League Championship a record 11 times, including five consecutive titles between 1994 and 1998. Impressively, he was both the youngest champion at the age of 20 and the oldest at the age of 39, representing a record of longevity and performance that would be remarkable in any sport.

Breitling’s New Partnership with Sustainable Apparel Manufacturer Outerknown
Building on the environmental engagement and commitment of the Explorers Squad, we are happy to strengthen the engagement with surfing icon Kelly Slater and Outerknown, a clothing company committed to improving conditions for people and the planet. The collaboration with Outerknown was perfectly natural for Breitling, which, earlier in the year, started working with Ocean Conservancy, supporting their noble fight against the pollution of the planet’s oceans and beaches. Outerknown also worked with Ocean Conservancy on their #ITSNOTOK initiative, launched in 2017 to raise awareness of the massive environmental problem of marine trash and to inspire people to take action to clean up the oceans.

As part of its collaboration with Outerknown, Breitling will be launching shared products and designs reflecting the engagement with Kelly Slater at the end of 2018. Their straps and packaging will be jointly designed and produced by Breitling and Outerknown, respecting Fair Trade principles and using only environmentally friendly, sustainable, and recycled materials.

Introducing The Breitling Squad Concept, The Breitling Cinema Squad With Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Adam Driver, And Daniel Wu

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

MIAMI, March 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ – Breitling is pleased to announce the gifted actors who are the members of the first Breitling squads. This imaginative idea involves creating three-person groups (the squads) whose members are all recognized masters in their respective professions. Rooted in the dynamic values of Breitling – action, purpose, and pioneering spirit –  this concept focuses on the bond created between people brought together by a shared endeavor and common goal and will be presented in Breitling’s advertising campaigns.

“At Breitling, we believe in the power of a team, the strength of a group, and the mutual identification of a common target, which ultimately leads to success,” says Georges Kern, the CEO of Breitling. He adds, “We aim for authenticity, credibility, and honesty for our brand and our products, as well as in our interactions with our clients. The same applies for each of the squads. We are going to launch several of them, from sports to the arts, covering different areas of activity linked to our thematic worlds: air, sea, and land. Our squad members – world-famous or not – will be  absolute masters in their respective fields. I am very much looking forward to seeing them soon, going on individual or shared challenges in one of the Breitling environments.”

It Is Our Pleasure to Announce Today the Breitling Cinema Squads, with an Absolutely Stellar Cast

Breitling shares a great deal of DNA with moviemakers. First of all, like a good film, our watches tell stories that connect people to something larger than themselves. A great script can take its audience to any place on earth, or even beyond. And Breitling watches are made to perform brilliantly on land, in the air, or on and below the water’s surface. There is another clear parallel: movies are the stuff of dreams, showing us that anything is possible. In our modest way, we know that a Breitling watch is also aspirational – a dream worth achieving. Breitling watches have had remarkable roles on the wrists of some of our most beloved actors, including Sean Connery as James Bond in Thunderball in 1965. Today, we are taking our relationship with the cinematic world to a new level as we introduce the four outstanding actors who are the members of the Breitling Cinema Squads: Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Adam Driver, and Daniel Wu. They will be appearing soon in different squad combinations and settings as part of Breitling’s new campaigns. With an all-star cast, the Breitling Cinema Squads bring the excitement and drama of the big screen to a dynamic, creative new partnership with Breitling.

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt, one of the world’s best and most versatile actors, is also a successful film producer with his company Plan B Entertainment. In the past few years, Pitt has won an Academy Award as a producer of 12 Years a Slave, a film directed by Steve McQueen, and led a fiveman tank crew in David Ayer’s World War Two Epic Fury. He also played a supporting role in The Big Short and the lead in War Machine – a provocative satirical comedy from David Michôd for Netflix –, both of which he also produced with Plan B Entertainment. In 2016, Pitt starred opposite Marion Cotillard in Robert Zemeckis’ Allied. His next role is in James Gray’s Ad Astra, and he is also set to star in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron is an Academy Award–winning actress who has built a remarkable film career by taking on a wide variety of roles. She has created an impressive body of work that includes her Oscar and Golden Globe Award–winning portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster. She also received Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations for her performance in North Country, and a Golden Globe Award nomination for Young Adult. Theron also has an impressive track record as a movie and television producer. She is the founder of the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, a charitable organization dedicated to fighting the HIV crisis in sub-Saharan Africa.

Adam Driver

Adam Driver most recently starred in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Logan Lucky. He made his feature-film debut in J. Edgar, and, in the years since, has established himself as one of America’s most versatile actors with performances in Silence, Frances Ha, Midnight Special, Inside Llewyn Davis, Lincoln, and Paterson, among others.

His next roles are in Noah Baumbach’s new feature and Spike Lee’s Black Klansman. He has also garnered rave reviews on stage and, in 2019, will appear in the first Broadway revival of Burn This, directed by Michael Mayer.

Driver is a Juilliard School graduate and a former US Marine.

Daniel Wu

Daniel Wu is an American-born, Hong Kong–based actor, director, and producer who, since his film debut in 1998, has been featured in over 60 films. Since 2015, he has starred as Sunny in the popular AMC martial-arts drama series Into the Badlands, which he also produces. After graduating from the University of Oregon, Daniel traveled to Hong Kong in 1997, where he was cast in his first movie. He has won numerous acting awards, and his directorial debut, The Heavenly Kings, earned him the Best New Director award at the Hong Kong Film Awards and the Chinese Film Media Awards.  Follow the #breitlingsquad at #squadonamission

The Ultimate Pilot’s Chronograph, Reimagined For Air, Land, And Sea Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

MIAMI, March 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – Breitling has launched a stunning interpretation of the Chronomat, featuring a satin-brushed case presented on a stainless-steel Pilot bracelet and equipped with the extraordinary Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01.

THE BREITLING CHRONOMAT B01 CHRONOGRAPH 44.

With a screwed stainless-steel caseback and a ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel, the Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44 is equal to any adventure. Its new understated satin-brushed case lends this timepiece a subtle contemporary flair that makes it the perfect partner for a night on the town.

This exceptional chronograph has been created in two versions, one with a Blackeye blue dial and the other with a Blackeye gray dial. The hands and the distinctive hour markers are coated with Super-LumiNova®, making them easy to read in all lighting conditions.

Both versions boast contrasting small second, 30- minute, and 12-hour chronograph subdials, an indication of the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 movement inside. The dial, which has a date window ideally positioned between 4 and 5 o’clock, is clearly legible through a convex sapphire crystal with anti- reflective coating on both sides.

With its dual-acting ball-bearing rotor, the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 has a power reserve in excess of 70 hours. You could take this watch off on Thursday night for a long weekend (not that you would want to) and it would still be ready for action and keeping perfect time when the new week begins.

The Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44 is water- resistant to 50 bar (500 meters). As with all Breitling wristwatches, it is a COSC-certified chronometer.

Continuing a Proud Tradition

While the Chronomat has long been established as the watch of choice for aviators, it has found a passionate following among people whose adventures take place not only in the air, but also on land and at sea – above and below the surface. You will understand why the moment you see this stunning timepiece on your wrist.

“We are proud to broadcast these significant games and to provide a platform for young athletes to showcase their talents to the world. Our partnership with CANOC gives us another opportunity to highlight our regional excellence in sports.  It also provides valuable exposure for our young athletes not only to sports fans across the Caribbean but also potential scouts for universities and athletic clubs.

The GC2018 is the largest sporting event to be held in Australia this decade with 15,000 volunteers and over 6,600 athletes and officials expected to converge on Queensland from over 70 nations and territories.

According to CANOC President, Brian Lewis, “We are pleased that together with the CGF, Lagardere, Panam Sports and Flow Sports the CANOC Executive is able to provide our athletes and youth with coverage of the Gold Coast 2018 Games.”

According to Sinclair, “These youngsters have the enviable and unique privilege of being exposed to the highest level of football coaching skills and techniques courtesy of the biggest and most prestigious Football Club in the world – Manchester United. They are in for an amazing weekend and my advice to them would be to grasp this opportunity with both hands and absorb everything.”

During the course of the Flow Skills competition close to 700 boys and girls between the ages of 12 to 16 years old from across 14 Flow Caribbean markets competed, culminating in reaching the finals in Trinidad for a shot at the ultimate prize: a trip to the Theatre of Dreams – Old Trafford – in Manchester, England. Both winners will be chaperoned by his/her coach and a parent.

Expectations are high for the finalists but all eyes will undoubtedly be on three emerging female talents: 13-year old Carlia Johnson of Anguilla; 13-year old Molly Kehoe of Cayman Islands and 14-year old Moenesa Mejias of Trinidad, all of them touted as extremely talented. Their male counterparts include: (click link to see list)

All participants will be exposed to the famous Manchester United Soccer School training techniques and some of their celebrated coaches. Tobagonian MU Legend Dwight Yorke will also interact with the finalists at the St. Joseph’s Convent Ground in Port of Spain during the weekend of activities and he will share words of encouragement and tips on how they can “up” their game.

This significant partnership with Manchester United, provides invaluable football development from both the player’s perspective as well as for the local in-market coaches. The Caribbean Football Union (CFU) has recognised and endorsed the program. Neil Cochrane, General Secretary of the CFU stated, “We are convinced that it won’t be too long before we begin to hear some of the region’s best players referencing this program for its contribution to their personal and career development in the sport.”

Garry Sinclair also said, “I am excited by the prospect of Flow Skills’ long term contribution to the development of the sport in the Caribbean.  However, Flow Skills does more than simply underscore our commitment to the development of football across the region. Look at all the lives this initiative impacts for good. Emerging on top this weekend is going to be important, but what will be of even more significance will be the indelible imprint this initiative leaves on the hearts and minds of participants for years to come, regardless of whether they pursue football as a career or not. They’ll never forget this moment in time.”

Quotes from four of our winners heading to the finals this weekend:

Jamal Augustine, Dominica, Winner 14-16 Age Group:
“Life in Dominica has been hard and different since the hurricane, but football is still there. That didn’t change. I’m so glad that I won the Flow Skills competition. It shows that hard work can pay off and that there is always something positive to look forward to,” said 15-year old Jamal Augustine of Dominica.

Moenesa Mejias, Trinidad & Tobago, Winner 14-16 Age Group:
“I’m really excited to be one of the three girl finalists in the Flow Skills competition. It shows that anything boys can do, girls can do too and sometimes even better,” said 14-year old Moenesa Mejias from Trinidad. “I’m looking forward to representing Trinidad & Tobago and learning some new techniques from the Manchester United coaches.”

Carlia Johnson, Anguilla, Winner 12-13 Age Group:
“Being one of only three girls to make it to the finals makes me feel very special but my goal is to make it all the way to Manchester,” said 13-year old Carlia Johnson from Anguilla.

Molly Kehoe, Cayman Islands, Winner 12-13 Age Group:
“I am excited because I can compare myself to the other two girls (rather than to compete only against boys) from different countries, and I am going to get good experience and hopefully good exposure,” said 13-year old Molly Kehoe from the Cayman Islands.

The Caribbean Association of Banks Is Concerned About The EU’s “Blacklist”

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

CaribPR Wire, CASTRIES, St. Lucia, Thurs. Mar. 22, 2018: The Caribbean Association of Banks Inc., (CAB), is deeply concerned about the recent inclusion of Caribbean territories on the European Union Commission’s (EU) list of non-cooperative jurisdictions for tax purposes.

The list names countries which have not displayed sufficient commitment to the tax standards identified by the EU.

Blacklisting has debilitating effects on our Caribbean economies, specifically:

  • It exacerbates the perception of our Region as ‘High Risk’ and consequently, negatively affects the risk profile of regional financial institutions and the willingness of correspondent banks to do business with them;
  • It severely reduces critically-needed development funding from the EU and limits the ability of Caribbean territories to pursue their development goals; and
  • It makes the region vulnerable to future sanctions and financial penalties, which may be levied against “blacklisted” jurisdictions.

Removal from the blacklist requires a high-level political commitment from the affected jurisdictions to address the deficiencies identified by the EU’s Code of Conduct Group. The status of Caribbean Territories as of March 13, 2018 by the OECD are as follows:

Annex I (Black list) Annex II (Grey list)
Anguilla Curacao
The Bahamas Antigua and Barbuda Dominica
Saint Kitts and Nevis Barbados Grenada
Trinidad and Tobago Belize Jamaica
Bermuda St. Lucia
British Virgin Islands

Cayman

St. Vincent and the Grenadines

The EU has given the above countries specific timeframes to make high level commitments to address the deficiencies identified by the Code of Conduct group.  Some of the deficiencies identified in the various Caribbean jurisdictions are:

  • Existence of Harmful and Preferential Tax Regimes;
  • Non-application of Base Erosion and Profit Sharing (BEPS) minimum standards (tax avoidance strategies which seek to artificially shift profits to low/no tax jurisdictions); and
  • Non-commitment to signing and ratifying the Convention of Mutual Administrative Assistance (Tax information exchange agreements to fight international tax evasion).

The CAB recognizes the efforts of regional governments thus far towards compliance with the OECD Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes Standards. Nonetheless, the very challenging issue of harmful and preferential tax regimes needs to be addressed.

Consequently, the CAB:

  1. Calls upon all regional governments concerned, to carefully assess the deficiencies identified by the EU and take the necessary actions to ensure compliance with Global Standards in order to avoid further reputational risk/damage to the region.
  2. Strongly recommends continued collaboration and coordination among CARICOM Governments so as to take appropriate measures on key issues which can impact the financial services sector as well as the growth and development of regional economies.

The CAB is a community of banks and other financial institutions in the Caribbean Region, which proactively influences issues impacting the financial services sector through advocacy, education and networking. The CAB represents fifty-three (53) banks and financial institutions in the Caribbean with an asset base in excess of US$40 billion as at Dec 31, 2017, in addition to seventeen (17) Service members comprising regional and international technological and professional institutions and three (3) Honorary Members.

Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation to give grants totaling US$290,000 to improve the lives of children in the Caribbean

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

Five grants to be made to a variety of education projects in the Caribbean

CaribPR Wire, MIAMI, March 16, 2018: The Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation today announced that it will provide additional funding of over US$290,000 to projects that will improve the lives of children in areas of the Caribbean impacted by last year’s hurricanes. This follows the Foundation’s initial US$100,000 donation to ShelterBox for relief efforts after the hurricanes, as well as a clean-up of the CHANCES children’s home in Dominica as part of C&W Communications’ annual Mission Day.

The new funding – made up of five individual grants – is a continuation of the Foundation’s plans to restore and rebuild affected countries. The grants will be used to support critical education services in some of the most badly impacted countries including the British Virgin Islands (BVI), Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI), Dominica and Anguilla.

Specifically, the Foundation’s funding will be used as follows:

  • In BVI:
    • US$100,000 will be used towards replacing the roof at the sole secondary school – Bregado Flax Secondary School – on Virgin Gorda
    • US$25,000 will be used towards repairs for the Eslyn Richiez Henly School for Disabled Children
  • In TCI, US$100,000 will be used to provide computers, printers, desks and chairs for children in the Osetta Jolly Primary School
  • In Dominica, US$45,000 will be used towards refurnishing the computer lab of Roseau Primary School, providing essential equipment like computers, projectors, flat screens and printers
  • In Anguilla, US$22,500 will be used to provide supplies and repair the doors, windows and roof of Bethel Pre-School, working in partnership with Rotary District 7020.

The Board of the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation chose these projects as it believed they would have a long-lasting positive impact on a great number of children and their families. The projects chosen also align with the Foundation’s strategic aims of educating and empowering communities.

Gina Colesanti, Director of the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation, said: “We’re delighted to provide these much-needed grants to improve the lives of children impacted by the 2017 hurricane season in the Caribbean. By rebuilding and furnishing schools in BVI, TCI, Dominica and Anguilla, we’re creating a better environment for these kids to learn and grow – giving them a great start in life and setting them up for future success.”

Colesanti also thanked the major sponsors of the Foundation which include Sterlite; the Premier League; Anixter; Evolution Digital; One Caribbean; Lorac; HBO Latin America; Advantage Communications; Deloitte and Telenet. Their generosity contributed to the US$1 million that the Foundation has raised so far – which includes the US$500,000 seed funding provided by C&W Communications at its launch.

The Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation was set up by C&W Communications initially as response to the humanitarian crisis caused by devastating hurricanes in 2017. The Foundation is increasingly the company’s platform for advancing social development in the region, as it strives to fulfil its mission of connecting communities and transforming lives, by funding education and empowerment projects like these five initiatives. The Foundation has a number of similar projects in the pipeline and will announce more details in due course.

Global Innovations for Character Development

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

CaribPR Wire, NASSAU, Bahamas, March 13, 2018: Can humility go viral? Can we disrupt barriers to gratitude? Can technology promote forgiveness? Templeton World Charity Foundation is announcing $15 million USD in funding over five years to answer these questions through Global Innovations for Character Development (GICD). This first-of-its-kind initiative will support scientifically sound innovations that explore how character development can be recognized, invested in, and nurtured for its critical role in transforming lives.

Andrew Serazin, President of the Templeton World Charity Foundation, remarked, “We believe that character development is a pillar of human development. Through this initiative, we hope that researchers, policymakers, and innovators around the world will respond with their best ideas.”

The Templeton World Charity Foundation has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for research and implementation projects in low- and middle-income countries worldwide, including Latin America and the Caribbean. This initial round will fund as many as ten proof-of-concept awards for up to $234,000 USD to proposals that develop novel approaches to fostering specific character strengths, as well as scales for measuring them.

The Foundation will also offer an award of up to $1 million USD to scale up a character development innovation. This larger opportunity is open to innovations that have a peer-reviewed evidence base, and that are ready to achieve substantial impact through widespread implementation. The Foundation anticipates additional calls for proposals in this initiative in future years.

Character strengths are learned and learnable attributes, skills, or habits which enable individuals to live better, more fulfilling and prosperous lives. Successful proposals will demonstrate a clear path to generating impact on individuals through demonstrable changes in knowledge, awareness and the practice of specific character strengths. Proposals must also include a rigorous evaluation methodology.

Based in Nassau, the Bahamas, the Templeton World Charity Foundation aims to provide scientific breakthroughs and practical tools relating to the search for meaning, purpose, and truth. The Foundation works with top institutions, thought leaders, and innovators from around the globe to support projects of the highest caliber and communicate the results of these projects to a wide audience.

The deadline for Round 1 of the RFP is June 15, 2018. For more information, visit www.globalcharacter.org.
