Companies that contributed to our development are in Italy – Gruppo SOGES, Finland – Tulossilta, Great Britain – Ashridge Management College, Chartred Institute of Marketing, DUBS University, Sunridge Park etc.Our growth and development was facilitated by the initial three-year programme designed by Roffey Park Management Institute, U.K.Working along Roffey Park Management Institute consultants structured our abilities and expertise and gave us the ground to build clear organisational values and rock-solid ethical principles in the relationship with our partners.
