Patricia Eguía Mayor


For me it is very important to create a safe atmosphere where participants can feel comfortable to exchange, to share, to learn from the others, from themselves, from the trainers.... main aims for me are to help participants reflect, give them energy and motivation.

My training experience is mainly related to ESC training cycle, Erasmus + Programme, project management and social entrepreneurship.

Patricia Eguía Mayor has 7 references for past work as a trainer and added 1 tools to the SALTO Toolbox.
