Marian Ancuta


Enjoy the joy! This should be the slogan of all learning situations: enjoy the joy of learning, of discovering, of being out of your comfort zone. "Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action". Training events are just a small part of our long learning process. I enjoy the joy of learning, discovering,reflecting,having a critical sense. I enjoy the joy of animating groups, places, times in formal, nonformal or informal contexts!
