The workshop was very thoughtful. It not only provided an insight about managing team dynamics but also helped me understand my own mindset while interacting in different situations.

My experience in working with Dr Ben Hartwig, was extremely valuable and helpful. He gave me insight in finding my own strong points and all these small details that could help me get through the presentation I had to do, in front of a big audience.As an outcome, I’d say that I used most of his advice that I found applicable on the same day and everything went much better than expected! What’s most important, is that most of his remarks and ideas, will follow me in similar challenges in the future.
