”Our achievements and development as an organization over the past three decades has exceeded my personal expectations.

We started in Europe and we have grown into a truly global organization. The clearest evidence of our success is that knowledge and managerial practices developed by BID during the past 30 years, have lead companies from 180 countries in the road to success.

Thanks to this, BID is firmly established as one of the most prominent voices of Quality Culture”
