Here is some feedback from others on this course's trainer:

"A great professional with a polite and friendly approach to the participants. I really appreciated the way she explained each topic with examples from her own career."

Gunn Aarli

"Irene Koukia is a very approachable person from what I could see and hear, and she shared her valuable ideas and resources with us. I like the way she went into details such as how to present oneself, or where to find a free CAT tool, giving all sorts of links. I would like to thank her for opening my eyes as there are lots of things I didn't realize I could do on my own, such as getting a specialisation free of charge! I can't wait for the release of the recording of the course to go through all the info and get my profile sorted out properly. Thank you, Irene!"

Dear Irene,

Thank you for the presentation. However, I was unable to read any of the URLs of the links in the slides (probably due to the contrast problem of my computer monitor.) Would it be possible for you to list the links here? Thank you.

Rgds,
Dave
