Course Description

"You may get the most interesting ideas, but you will need someone who can help you transform these ideas into tangible results. We cannot reach the summit unless we team up.” Walt Disney This quote confirms that organized teamwork is the only way to have a successful conference or event. In fact, such events are like a music composition which requires talented musicians, good instruments and most importantly a skilled maestro who is able to lead the orchestra with love, understanding, good organization and clear role assignment so that the lyric won’t be dissonant.
