"We had the pleasure of a one-day visualization workshop with Mauro for our entire team. Mauro has a unique and very personal style of moderating workshops which just amazing. We all learned a lot and it was huge fun at the same time. We also see effects that we sketch more in our work throughout the team after the course. Absolutely recommended! :)"
