شكراً زايد

Posted on

لم ألتقي بأحد في البحرين الذي فعلاً يجسد قصد #فريق_البحرين مثل زايد الزياني. التواصل معه سهل و رده حازم وسريع. لأسرد لكم قصة حدثت معي هذا الأسبوع لأوضح سبب إعجابي بهذا الشخص… عندي شركتين، واحدة مؤسسه والثانية محدودة المسؤلية. في أثناء تقديم معاملة لواحدة منهما، اتضح ان هناك مخالفة على الأخرى لتأخرنا في تحميل الحسابات النهائية، فلهذا السبب تم إيقاف معاملات المؤسسة الأخرى لتصحيح الوضع. ليس لدي أي اعتراض على الخلل، بينما أعترضت وبشدّة لدمج المؤسستين …
