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.
