Aldo Perez


Hola, Hello, Servus, Ciao! As a mexican in Austria, I am used to an international environment. As a trainer, I work with methods that bring out the knowledge and experience of the participants, thus learning from each other. My aim is to develop empowerment and reflection as tools for the further work of each participant beyond the seminar.

Aldo Perez has 3 references for past work as a trainer.
