        One of the most useful trainings I’ve participated in my professional life. Very practical, super engaging, and a lot of fun. A few of the exercises were quite out of my comfort zone, but that’s where you learn the most.

        What a session! Very relevant to our roles, fun, and slightly uncomfortable. Philipp's mix of humour, empathy, and directness created a very great learning atmosphere. The next week, quite a few us already used some of the learnings in our client meetings. Good stuff!
