- What did you feel when receiving The BIZZ award?
Recognition of many years of effort for an excellent work with high quality standards aimed at a sector that requires quality but that which does not recognize or pay the price of what is offered. It is a work we make based on principles and conviction more than a business that produces big profits; we do it so that people studying at the MIC school or working with MIC understand that it is possible to work in a different way and generate positive changes as agents of influence and with models of excellence.
- What message would you give the entrepreneurship network of WORLDCOB?
Quality and excellence do not have to be simply a slogan or a corporate objective, they must be an integral part of the human being that leads the company as a whole; and along with the efficiency, transparency and integrity they must become bastions in the current and coming generations with daily examples.
Businesses must not be the main purpose of a person; they must be the result of the full realization of a vocation, only in this way there are neither limitations nor nothing impossible to achieve the dreams to make a better world. The big dreamers are not those who make their dreams come true at the first attempt, but those who persevered even despite the adverse circumstances and, nowadays they are known and recognized as important enterprising men and women who have left legacies followed by many people as models to be imitated and improved.
