“Ricardo brought the virtual teaching experience to another level! The content and practical activities are brilliant and highly applicable in corporate strategy and in meeting personal goals. Finally, I was able to make valuable connections with people from different parts of Brazil and the world, which would not be possible in a face-to-face environment.
