5/5
You have built an amazing program that created a key professional year for me. I learned to live my values, to dare, to explore my strengths and “tame” my weaknesses.
Eglantine Eeckhout
5/5
The project added important dimensions of learning, allowing to practice the sustainability theory learned in class. Combining the project work with the leading change modules provided invaluable time for reflection. My highest personal learning came from the soft skills of understanding resistance and discussing the “road block”.
