ECSSR Announced Winner of two Awards from the French Association Otherways Management & Consulting
H.E. Dr. Jamal Sanad Al-Suwaidi: Our Wise Leadership Has Instilled the Culture of Excellence and Innovation in Us

The Association Otherways Management & Consulting has announced the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) as winner of the ‘European Golden Award for Quality’ and ‘Competence and Quality in Customer Satisfaction Award’. The announcement was made during their meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, on 27 October 2014. These are two of the most prestigious international awards granted by the association every year to leading institutions and companies around the world.

His Excellency Dr. Jamal Sanad Al Suwaidi, Director General of the ECSSR, said that the prestigious awards that the ECSSR has received from regional and international organizations, and will receive in the future, are the result of the culture of excellence, distinction, and innovation instilled in us by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan (may God protect him) as well as the generous encouragement the Center receives from His Highness General Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and President of the ECSSR.

He said that such an award, conferred by an organization that enjoys worldwide credibility, reaffirms global appreciation of the ECSSR’s role, which is not limited to research but extends to several other areas, most important being its services to the UAE, Arab, and international community. “The ECSSR promotes interaction and dialog among scientific institutions in different countries for the purpose of enriching knowledge and highlighting issues related to global security, development and stability,” he explained.

H.E. Dr. Jamal Al-Suwaidi said that such awards bring a sense of pride and satisfaction and also increases the feeling of responsibility. “Not only do I want to maintain our accomplishments, my continued ambition is to attain more such achievements to keep up with the UAE’s progress, which is based on innovation and creativity, and always seeks to come first in various fields as per regional and global standards. H.E. Dr. Jamal Al-Suwaidi also said that the appreciation the ECSSR has received from around the world motivates and incentivizes all institutions in the country to make greater efforts to raise the UAE’s profile across the world, and make the country synonymous with distinction.

Mr. Charbel Tabet, founder and CEO of Association Otherways Management & Consulting, lauded the contribution made by the ECSSR that transcends the UAE to benefit the global community. He reiterated that ECSSR publications are invaluable source of knowledge for the whole world and that its conferences and academic events receive great attention as they raise vital issues facing the world today. He added that his organization follows strict standards while granting these awards and they are only conferred on distinguished institutions with significant contributions in their fields.

Mr. Charbel Tabet founded the Association Otherways Management & Consulting in Paris in 1994. The organization, which is considered among the most prominent global associations in management and consulting, offers multiple services such as management consulting, research and development as well as investment studies and management to companies all over the world.

The scientific method adopted by the Association in choosing award winners has worldwide credibility. It takes its decisions based on accurate and comprehensive information about the organization nominated for the award, its field of work, and its accomplishments. Research, studies, and opinion polls are then carried out, followed by final voting. These awards are hence a testimony to the level of innovation and distinction achieved by their recipients in their respective sphere of activities.
