A team of Trainers and Organizers is there to serve as supporters of your teamwork process and to help optimize your learning experience.
While struggling through large quantities of data and compiling comprehensive presentations, you may be confronted with different work cultures, attitudes, communication difficulties and so on. Training will be tailored to your specific needs. When we speak of leadership training in the agenda, we refer to training of those skills, which you need to get the job done with your team.
The list of trainers reflects the last summer school edition. This list will be updated for 2016!
