I was already enthusiastic before coming since I saw the Keynote Speakers who attend. The participants are impressive. The event completely meets my expectations. It’s a complete openness on everything that happens around the world and which reminds more than ever that we must communicate, work together, and share. For the moment, it definitely meets my expectations.

The event’s room was full and it is not always the case for others workshops. Indeed, last, week, I was somewhere where there are not as many participants. There are lots of questions from passionate people, people with a high level of qualification that I recognized in the room, great actors, very interesting and very exciting.

It is a great conference. Otherwise I would not be here. I love this place, I think it is a very great school. I like the founder of the school, Eiffel, and the principle of the school.
