Argüden Governance Academy Foundation

We participated in the 26. Quality Congress.

26. Quality Congress organised by the Quality Association of Turkey took place on 21-22 November 2017.  


Our founder Dr. Yılmaz Argüden chaired the session “UN Sustainable Development Goals! Risks!“ at the Quality Congress organised under the theme “Leading the Transformation”. The speakers of the session were Deputy Board Chair of the Yaşar Holding İdil Yiğitbaşı, Board Chair of Global Compact National Network of Turkey and Deputy Board Chair of Unilever Turkey Mustafa Seçkin, Board Chair of Sustainable Development Association (SKD) and Board Chair of Borusan Consulting Canan Ercan Çelik, and Deputy General Manager of Garanti Bank Ebru Dildar Edin.


Leading the transformation requires corporate and individual capacities such as agility, foresight, speed in decision making and implementation, and above all compliance. These are all important elements in the success in stakeholder engagement, and putting into action integrated thinking – crucial tools for good governance which were the main subjects of our two books we presented to all participants in the Congress, namely “İstişare: Paydaşların Kararlara Katılımı (Consultation: Stakeholder Engagement in Decision Making) and “Entegre Düşünce: 21. Yüzyılda İş Yapmak” (ntegrated Thinking: Doing Business in the 21st Century)  


We communicated the activities of our Academy during the panel chaired by Dr. Argüden and at our stand at the lounge of the Zorlu Center to 3500 people and distributed our publications to 1500.
