I liked it very much!Marta, Agrupamento de Escolas de Alcanena, Portugal
The course was both stimulating and delivered with valuable content. Very pleasant, theoretical and practical in a balanced way. I could take it again. It tought us to remember to create and break routine and communicate that to our public. Creativity is a very underestimated subject although it is the fuel to everything we do and the way to always go forward.Alexandra, Agentia pentru Dezvoltare Regionala Nord-Est, Romania
