Vitalie Cirhana

About:

I believe learning starts outside of comfort zone, this is why I like to design learning processes focused on challenges we need to overcome for improving ourselves (building a better version of us), discovering new limits, learning new things, developing new competences.

Vitalie Cirhana has 25 references for past work as a trainer and added 7 tools to the SALTO Toolbox.
