Education & Training

Alex Cenem

My favourite description of the word "Education" is "an enlightening and inspiring experience".

For me, an enlightening experience is not the same as being inspired; Inspiration is the drive, the impulse to create and produce something, while an experience is learning about dedication, discipline, and responsibility about a topic. But a real enlightened professional knows that there is never a limit to experiencing or learning because everything is constantly evolving and changing. Still, everything is only about perspectives and developing the powers of reasoning and judging percentages of what one does with their knowledge. 

 

It would be almost impossible for me to list all my enlightening experiences here; therefore, I am documenting my adventures in the world of studies, courses/workshops and training.

Please note, during most of these courses/training, I have also worked (full-time) managing high profile companies/projects, and due to my responsibilities and career development path, sometimes I had to choose between working and studying.
