Thirasha P., Operations Professional from South Africa 2018

Course quality: excellentExtremely beneficial. Learnt about myself and interacting with my peers. Kept us interested, and very interactive. Cellphone usage was discouraged during these days. Course, facilities, field trip and food were so worth it!
Instructors: excellentMost of them. 9/10
Other (e.g. materials, infrastructure): excellentMore than sufficient Many networking opportunities
Primary takeaway: Learning about myself currently. Learning about my peers, and their differing personalities. Learning presentation skills and ideas around self worth. Skills to help improve myself personally and professionally. It was also extremely motivational and i left feeling a renewed sense of worth and purpose. There was a large focus on goals and milestones to achieving them.
Things to improve: More time on presentation skills, more time to complete the content as it was a struggle to fit everything into the 9 days.
