“Traveling to Bishkek for me was rather a business trip than something personal. Coming back from Almaty, celebrating the successful border crossing...  was absolutely personal. So, thanks to Viktoria, and Gulsum [Chairman, “CMC Kazakhstan”] for organizing such event where we could became friends besides being potential business partners.

Due to this award we – Vialto Consulting – have started good media publicity!”

Florian Kugler, Vialto Consulting, Hungary

“I would like to say that it was fantastic to attend the event in Bishkek and the training in Almaty with the support of Gabriel Al-Salem Foundation. I learned a lot and found good new ideas there. It was really helpful to me. I was very happy to meet many consultants from different countries and to have opportunities to exchange opinions, experiences and challenges. I enjoyed all of the activities; they are not to be forgotten! I was really impressed and motivated by your heartfelt and hardworking aspirations to support Consultants.”

"This was a wonderful event and truly international! It was amazing to have an opportunity to witness world-class consultants discussing the most urgent and fundamental global issues. While effective international partnerships, education on climate change and global happiness might not be on consultants’ daily agenda, events like this remind us what our efforts should be focused on. I will be following closely all of Gabriel Al-Salem Foundation’s upcoming events, and I invite everyone to join this growing community in their contribution to sustainable development.

As an Award winner this year, I am very grateful that social problems we tried to highlight and resolve in our project were noticed and appreciated by the Committee. It gives us a strong motivation and drive to continue growing as a socially responsible consultant."
