Testimonials

The coaching and the contact with other women who all wanted to work helped me. I had a wonderful coach; she helped me regain my confidence. I really needed this. The course curriculum was also exciting and of a high standard, and gave me the confidence to be able to learn and implement new things quickly. You need the courage to be imaginative. Because there is no right way to proceed in such situations

WBB helped me personally to learn more about business thinking patterns. Everything today is economized and structured in clear schemes. If I want to describe an idea and wish to be understood, I have to talk about opportunities and risks or about the degree of public awareness and effort required. Before, I would have talked in long sentences and spoken using flowery language. I knew much of the economic vocabulary. Each woman must discover what she can contribute and must follow her own path.
