The three-day annual gathering aimed at drawing plans for the implementation of the Organization's strategy to expand its presence and services in all fields across the globe, in order to transform into a global knowledge-based organization.
Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh addressed the attendees expressing his pride for the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh staff and attributing the organisation's success and achievements to their efforts and hard work, pointing out that their performance challenged the notion that international corporations are restricted to certain regions.
"We are an international organization by any criteria and the largest professional service firm globally. We are by any standard on top of the world; this has been accomplished in 45 years of hard work by a great team: the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh family," Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh said.
Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh said that the Organization passed through two evolution stages; the First Evolution started in 1972 in Kuwait and ended in 1990, the second from 1990-2017, and the Third Evolution started this year to continue until 2030.
"We are moving into the Third Evolution. TAG-Org 2017 AGM is a very important and historic meeting because it is day one of the Third Evolution during which we put ourselves on the map as the global services organization in every and major city in the world; where all offices and liaison offices render all TAG-Org professional services. This requires a $4 million future investment in the upcoming three years."
During the sessions of the Conference, many resolutions were passed for the implementation of the Organization's strategy in expansion and for the provision of its services at the highest standards.
In addition, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh reviewed the services presented by the Organization's offices or through a local partner which include Translation, English Language (Cambridge Certificate), Arabic Language (Arabic Fluency Certificate), E-Archiving, the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh International Diploma in IT Skills (TAG-DIT), Digital Training (Online), Outsourcing Services, ISO, Market Research and Intelligence, Market Surveys, Taxation and VAT, Online Education, Company Registration, Tenders, Chinese Language, Recruitment and Human Resources.
During the meeting, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh presented honorary shields to managers and employees who have contributed to the success and excellence of the Organization.
Moreover, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh stressed the significance of Corporate Social Responsibility accomplished through Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Foundation which is concerned with capacity building of members of the society and the implementation of TAG-Org's mission in giving back to the community.
On an additional note, TAG-Org inaugurated a number of new offices in different countries in 2017 including, but not limited to, Nigeria, Brazil, Australia, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Italy and Kazakhstan.
