100% of participants said they would attend future workshops, according to our post-workshop survey.

“I found the workshop useful, and quite fun as well. It was definitely worthwhile”

“This workshop gave me the opportunity to make a stop from my routine to evaluate my daily work activities and reflect on many things that I could somehow improve at work”

“The workshop provided me with a lot of tips and principles that I can easily use every day in my job and that will make my life easier! Thanks a lot”

“The workshop was extremely interactive and adapted to the participants’ needs. The case studies used addressed a broad variety of topics that helped correlate the information with our personal situation. I like also the balance of participants as they helped me meet people with different background and areas of focus and I found it highly mind opening.”
