I am a seasoned trainer, youth worker and researcher. Up-to-date, I have trained and mentored more than 12,000 individuals globally and cooperated with over 70 organisations/institutions in the last 13 years. I perceive my professional roles not just as a job but rather as a state of life. I am passionate about discovering new people, cultures and ideas. In my work, I always strive to create meaningful learning processes that uncover my potential and the potential of the people I interact with.

NURANA MAMMADOVA has 3 references for past work as a trainer.
