Leadership - How to lead with your heart

Times are changing, and so are leaders. We're going to speed up this process by teaching how to grow authenticity, integrity and being of service.

Business Model - And what happens next?

A lot of people begin with writing a business plan and get stuck with it for ages. Did you know that most business plans don’t even survive the first contact with the customer? Don’t worry, we got your back. We'll explain how it really works.


Perform a Pitch - Dos and don'ts

There are some mistakes that are constantly being repeated among speakers. They kill credibility instantly. And so the pitcher's idea loses its value. Hear out the expert who has made all possible bloopers you won’t have to repeat!

Collect Contacts - Become a powerful networker

If you want to grow a business - create your own network! The networking ninja will explain how to improve your skills!
