Participant feedback

With this course, basically I defined the future of the unit I’m leading. I changed some of my objectives and my goals, future goals... because I had the opportunity to think in other ways, to take into account more.

Somehow the Global Leadership in the Cloud programs have managed to keep that campus richness, by creating not just an online course that five million people can sign into, but a very focused and personal learning experience with one-on-one coaching.
