Gabriel Brezoiu

About:

A European trainer specialized in working with young people in intercultural groups. From my point of view, the three main strengths of my training approach are the followings: a simplified theoretical content as a base for immediate use in practice, using appealing visual support such as presentations, infographics or drawings and focusing on participants’ motivation and involvement.
Specialized in new media tools both theory (research studies, statistics etc.) and practice (tips and tricks).

Gabriel Brezoiu has 36 references for past work as a trainer and added 4 tools to the SALTO Toolbox.
