“It’s been a very thought provoking session. It’s challenged us, got us to open our minds to a few aspects, and as a result we are going away with some fresh ideas, ways we can tweak and get a bit of extra yield from the activities that we currently do.”

Lena, Relationship Manager, Amnesty International Netherlands
