The Business model canvas was very insightful especially for somebody who wants to start a business and has no idea where to begin putting pen to paper.
The training helped me to be observant, energetic and enthusiastic. It gave me more awareness to stay away from things that could determine my situation. It’s helped me a great deal with some client that I already have and the customers to come. I have benefitted from the training and now I am using what I have learnt.
