I was looking for financial advise and wanted to expand my knowledge in financial growth. However, I had a pleasant surprise when heard from other talented professionals from different industries. I particularly enjoyed the session about soft skills, especially when we were presented with real life situations and suggestions to deal with them.
I strongly recommend this to every person who wants to grow professionally and personally.
