    Prof. Maarten Weyn Applied Engineering Sciences, University of Antwerp
  • To prepare for my pitch in the context of my FWO PhD fellowship application, the presentation workshop was exactly what I needed. The clear theoretical guidelines, in combination with the personal feedback on my very own pitch, were extremely helpful. I now feel much more confident and well prepared for my pitch!
