The conference brought together professional consultants from across Turkey and the region, as well as Turkish and international business owners, top managers and international organizations active in private sector development.

The theme of the conference in 2015 was Turning knowledge into value. It provided a forum for discussion of best practice in business and consulting from around the world and how to apply these for real-world impact and business growth.

The overall agenda included:

  • A half-day conference with three international key note speakers and cases presented by last year’s winners of the International Award for Excellence in Consulting
  • A networking dinner & award ceremony for the International Award for Excellence in Consulting 2014
  • A full day workshop on Management Consulting Tools, delivered by Brian Ing, from the International Council of Managing Consulting Institutes.


At the gala dinner / award ceremony, which traditionally took place after the conference, Viktoria Olskaia, President of Gabriel Al-Salem Foundation, announced 10 prize holders from 7 countries. This year the Award International Committee received the total of 50 applications from 18 countries. The gala dinner participants not only cheered on the award winners but also enjoyed their artistic performances.
