Forbes’ new project dedicated to the enhancement of Quality

In companies, the concept of Quality is increasingly associated not only with the product but also with the production chain to extend to real business management: genius and planning are the hot issues to be taken care of and enhanced to achieve the supreme goal of Quality 360 degrees.

Entrepreneurs, managers, and professionals of all kinds are the key to creating and maintaining productive management paths: women and men, professional figures who every day marry projects and invest in the forefront of their own energies and skills for unique productions and services of the highest level.

That’s why Forbes has launched this new project, Quality Leaders, a dynamic network dedicated to the comparison and cultivation of talent, bringing high the Made in Italy. The project then becomes a well-rounded reality: the space dedicated to the monthly off-line, along with the daily columns of the online line, are the channels to tell the public the project in all its nuances and the great work of Forbes together and all the actors of Made in Italy. Forbes will tell the success stories of Quality Leaders and the realities that guide them through articles, interviews, and events, such as the one organized by Corsini.Events at Villa Corsini a Mezzomonte, to reward the true Quality Leaders of Italy.

The experience of the team in the organization of events has gathered the best suppliers for an event of quality. A location so rich in history and artistic wonders requires expert eyes to create unique but delicate settings: Simone Bertini together with the whole team has therefore finely decorated the Pandolfo Sacchi Gallery for the Forbes Quality Leaders gala dinner. The audio and lighting systems of Alma Project 24/7 have been the key to enhancing, illuminating ad hoc, the beauty of Villa Corsini a Mezzomonte and fundamental to make unique the stage dedicated to the awards.
