    Simon Vanlangendonck, researcher KU Leuven Workshop ‘How to present online?’
  • I loved how you guided us along, step by step. At first, I had no idea how to get started on a poster, but by the end of the session I could already really envision my poster. I happily listened fully focused for the entire three hours. Well done!

    Anton Milh, researcher KU Leuven, Faculty of Theology Workshop ‘Scientific posters with impact’
