This year again, EFQM took part in the Dubai International Government Achievements Exhibition (DIGEA) hosted at the Dubai World Trade Centre from April 9th to April 11th.
Realising the contribution of EFQM in spreading Excellence in UAE and supporting organisations in their excellence journey, we have joined this event as an Excellence Partner. During this event, we presented our services and new products as well as showcasing local and international examples of excellent organisations, presenting their success stories and implementation of the EFQM Excellence Model. This year, our CEO, Léon Tossaint was a keynote speaker and both Isra’a Mobideen and Gianluca Mule presented a session about Achieving Excellence.
This year's exhibition was also the opportunity for EFQM to launch something new and different, this includes the Excellence Builders; the launch of the Innnovation programme and the presentation of the 5Es of Excellence.
These 3 days at the exhibition were very interesting and full of opportunities to meet our local EFQM Members and Partners, network with the visitors and develop new business contacts.
The organiser of this exhibition, Dubai Government Excellence program “DGEP”, is one of our core partners in the UAE. EFQM and DGEP share the same vision of developing a culture of excellence, drive innovation, improve results and support organisations to acquire a competitive advantage and a leading position.
The EFQM CEO, Léon Tossaint, provided a presentation at the DIGAE. You can find this video on our Facebook page.
Since its inception in 2011, Dubai Government Achievements Exhibition (DGAE) has established itself as the benchmark for public sector excellence showcase where all local authorities, institutions, departments and agencies unveil their most effective programmes and innovative solutions.
DIGAE gave an opportunity to participating institutions to share their achievements while in return they received direct feedback from users on ongoing services-to-citizen and real-time appraisal on the pipeline of planned and future solutions. In the 5th edition of DIGAE, Dubai Government endeavors to establish international cooperation hubs on government administration best practices and principles. A wealth of local governments across the globe have been invited to join the debate on the next generation of high performing public services.
