"One of the best business trainings I have visited in the past 15 years. There are few trainers, such as Mr. Mitterlehner and Mr. Wolf, who are able to convey their comprehensive knowledge about the FMCG industry, through planning and negotiation, in such a catchy and directly practicable way. Strategic, pragmatic and entertaining!"

"When I first signed up for the Marketing & Sales course, I was expecting to learn about the fundamentals of Marketing & Sales. However, my expectations were exceeded. What I did not expect was to gain the competency needed to perform a market analysis. With this new skill set, I am now able to perform underlying data research techniques to drive key business decisions. This course broadened my perspective on the power of marketing."
