Amazing to be immersed into Silicon Valley culture and set up. Loved the structure of the courses and how each session built into each other. Fascinated to think differently that is not in my specific pillar but to broaden my thinking which has then in turn allowed me to challenge myself more and recognize my personal opportunities."
