An award-winning group which operates exclusively in the cultural, entertainment and mega-events sectors, has rebranded under a consolidated new name and tagline: BLR WORLD – Simply Brilliant People.

Previously known independently as Barker Langham Recruitment (UK), Barker Langham Project Management Services (Dubai), Barker Langham Business Services (Saudi Arabia) and BLR Doha (Qatar) the new brand name marks their phenomenal growth and development into an all-encompassing, world-leading group that offers integrated solutions in recruitment, training, operations, management, consultancy, and more.

Bringing together the entity’s specialisms into one overarching brand, BLR WORLD’s new positioning reflects its global reach, its international network of offices, and its commitment to empowering the culture, entertainment and events sectors – including the talents who work within them. Founded in London in 2015, and with more than two decades of experience, the name BLR WORLD brings a double meaning, symbolising both the “world” (or environment) that the company has nurtured, and the group’s global reach. With international offices in London, Dubai, Doha and Riyadh, new locations in Tokyo and Paris are also set to follow very soon.

The new tagline ‘Simply Brilliant People’ pays homage to BLR WORLD’s belief that people are the beating heart of every experience. BLR WORLD is skilled at finding brilliant people, creating high-performing teams, and creating nurturing working environments. BLR WORLD’s prestigious portfolio of current and former clients include Expo 2020 Dubai, the World Cup Qatar 2022, the Women’s World Cup 2023, the Museum of the Future and the inside of the iconic Burj Al Arab in Dubai, and more extraordinary projects in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Micah Styles, Founder and CEO of BLR WORLD, says: “Driven by a desire to uplift and strengthen the cultural sector, BLR WORLD has developed from a small firm into a global movement with branches in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. We now offer services in recruitment, training, operating solutions, consultancy and much more. Our diverse and multinational team allows us to bring a localised and carefully customized approach to every client, and we are thrilled to be such a trailblazer of the cultural realm.”
