“I lived different, tough life, just like everyone else.” This sentence reminds me that everyone has different stories and experiences. My duty is to understand their best skills/knowledge/attitudes and make them shine and be useful.

Training is a kind of opportunity to inspire people and create an environment to make them think differently than their ‘box’. That is why I have been in this field for 15 years.

ÜMİT YARDIM has 4 references for past work as a trainer.
