The inbound marketing workshop with the main task to create the company was the last work with Nina. This week we had the last lesson. In the lessons we were divided in the group with the same or similar business plan or field of business. We were with the jewelry group and had little bit similar ideas. But every idea was original. It was very informative and interesting to get know how other classmates work and know their ideas. Very interesting for me was that I had the opportunity to work or discuss my business ideas with finnish students. I haven’t had so many opportunities before that. In the end of the lessons Nina introduced us the most interesting ideas for her. It was really nice and I honestly appreciate all the lessons with Nina. She is very nice, she was always to able help us and all the lessons with her were informative and useful for me.
Thank you Nina!
