What participants say about their experience

My certificate journey was well-structured, interconnected, and very hands-on. The strategy programs I chose provided the right balance of useful tools and advice that I was able to easily apply to my own work. The one-on-one coaching and challenging discussions really helped me to question myself and develop. I also enjoyed the international aspect, which opened me to new ways of thinking and problem solving. It was a wonderful chance to connect with people from different cultures, industries and countries.
