I found the quality of the course to be world-class, extremely professional and very well run. Overall I really loved the experience, the relaxed nature of the team, the professionalism of the course, the content and the facilitators.

Anonymous, Certification Course Participant

The course itself provides the right context to make the theory fall into place. Both facilitators make the content come to life by the stories they share.

Anonymous, Certification Course Participant

Thank you so much for this great opportunity. It was great that I could meet many working people from various countries with a lot of intercultural experiences. It was a very interesting experience.
