Message from ASQ Global Managing Director 

"With technology, global trade, and international travel making everywhere accessible to everyone, the world is shrinking. Now, more than ever, ‘quality’ is needed in all aspects of life, wherever in the world we live. As The Global Voice of Quality ASQ has an important role to play in increasing the use and impact of quality worldwide—impact that includes enhanced business performance, reduced waste, superior products and greater customer  satisfaction. Nowhere in the world is quality more at work than in the United Arab Emirates. ASQ is delighted, therefore, to introduce the ASQ UAE Quality Professionals Awards—the first‐of‐its‐kind award designed to recognize the achievements, efforts and contributions of UAE quality professionals and encourage and motivate others to excel in the field of quality to improve businesses, communities and society. We thank all those who participate and wish them the very best of luck."

الجودة بالنسبة لي هي الشغف لكل ما فيه خير للمجتمع المحيط بنا بل و للبشرية جمعاء لكي نجعل الحياة أكثر سهولة ومتعة. الجودة تعني أن نفخر بما أنجزنا من أعمال. 

أحب أن أشكر قادة الإمارات لرؤيتهم الملهمة والجمعية الأمريكية للجودة للبادرة المتميزة. العاملون في مجال الجودة هم كالجنود المجهولين يدربون الآخرين و يكرّمونهم بالاحتفال لكنهم قد لا يحظوا أنفسهم بالتكريم. لذلك فإن هذا التكريم يعني لي الكثيرمن الفخر والتشجيع لكي أعطي أكثر. لا يسعني كذلك إلا ان اشكر فريق عمل مجموعة جمعة الماجد عموما و اخص المدير الدكتور صالح شحادة لالتزامه بمبادىء الجودة وختاماً أشكر عائلتي الحبيبة لدعمهم المتواصل.
