MESGO I Participant

“The MESGO offered me a variety of new perspectives and contacts which helps me to better coordinate my work on an international scale. The various themed sessions offered me deep insights into areas which I am normally not confronted with in my day-to-day work. It forced me to think outside the box and also created new ideas for my day-to-day business.”
