I liked the fact that it was interactive and everyone was involved.

Thank YOU for this amazing experience and all the knowledge you shared with us! I really hope I’ll get the chance to attend other of your workshops.

When you said in the first mail that it would be an interactive meeting, I really asked myself how that could be possible through a camera, but it was fun and educative at the same time! I really liked his way of working, of making us understand things. The syllabus on itself was also very interesting.
