Teilnehmerstimmen zu diesem Seminar
»I already had some ideas about the training from my colleagues, but it really exceeded my expectations. Dietmar gave well structured presentations, had excellent reaction to ad hoc questions, and gave a lot of tips & innovative methods to work with. Ideas for practical implementation: This I appreciated the most, as it refreshed some of the theory, but then the practical implementation was the main added value.«
