„GMC showed me how difficult it is to be a manager. I used to think there were no perfect decisions out there. It turns out there are – on the verge of the impossible. When they emerge, though – they are the cornerstones to success. We managed to take two decisions like this. One made us the Polish Champions, the other helped us qualify for the finals in Russia.” – says this year’s GMC finalist, Marcin Szewczyk.

BIGRAM is the sole Global Management Challenge representative in Poland organizing the finals Polish editions of the competition since 2000 this year we will be celebrating the 20th anniversary edition.
