Comments from past participants:

“It was an extremely interesting and thought provoking experience that provided me with the tools to actually launch a project.”

“Annette is extremely creative and knowledgeable. She also was very willing to share her experience with us and to show us even a pro has fears and doubts. I found the whole process very useful, practical and rewarding.”
