Diploma Testimonials 2017-2018
You may enter at your own risk! It is a journey that will expose the mask you are using to connect with the world, challenge your limiting beliefs, behaviour and impact you have on others and unleash your inner thoughts. At the exit, you will find a transformed version of you, ready to overcome whatever seemed impossible before. Added value: the unconditional and deep connection with your co-passengers.
A transformational lifetime experience. One of the best decisions I have taken in and for my life was to take this course. Strongly recommend it for anyone looking for growth, personally and professionally. Great experience, excellent tutors, solid curriculum. I am not the same person and I want to thank everyone that has participated in my journey, through this course. Truly impactful!
A beautiful journey to awareness. If you want to explore your innerself in order to become your better self DO IT! It’ s not easy but it worth it!
A highly recommended training experience, which will enhance the results you bring in your business and many aspects of your personal life.
The only regret I have is that I didn’t embark on this journey, many years earlier.
Thank you Vassilis and the team!
Fotis Draganidis, (Microsoft)
When I first met Vassilis in the induction meeting I was advised that is going to be a difficult procedure, the one I was heading in. Deep down inside I laughed when told that in many cases after the sessions I may not be able to drive back home. It turned out to be a very scary… very scary and intense journey for me. You get to feel sad, anxious, confused and afraid in many cases all at once. But as long as you finish the journey you open a door behind which lies greatness. It is absolutely the most interesting, meaningful, astonishing program I have ever attended. It helped me to get to know myself and appreciate all the others. Do yourself a favour and sign in for that rollercoaster.
An insightful experience through which I gained awareness and growth; As a training program it is exceptional and provides many useful tools and theoretical knowledge that can contribute towards becoming an efficient professional.
For those who have no experience in psychology is hard at the beginning. Don’t be disappointed, because as you go along you’ll see that all dots are connected at the end. If someone is willing to expose their inner self, to get in conflict with his classmates and eventually transform and evolve, IMPACT’s Advanced Diploma is the place to invest their time in order to succeed in all the above. Challenging, enlightening and beyond my expectations; Thank you for giving me the chance to learn more about me.
Stathis Loverdos, (Kaizen Digital)
One of the most valuable journeys of my life. It changed the way I see the world. Definitely recommended!
It’s not a “program”. It’s a unique experience with “source code” transference to create your own transformational scripts to generate impactful interventions.
George Giannakouros, (Sc Johnson Hellas)
