    The Inspiring Journeys of COTRUGLI Challenge Alumni


    As one of the COTRUGLI Challenge winners, I boosted my career growth and pushed my personal development to the next level. It motivated me to explore new learnings and business perspectives and gave me once in a lifetime opportunity to meet incredible people. At this point, I can thoroughly say that I’m at the right place and excited to step into the new chapter of business opportunities.


    They say, "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity", but I say, "Luck is what happens when you win the COTRUGLI Challenge". COTRUGLI inspires me to think differently and supports me in dealing with tough decisions, especially when I refuse to see or accept potential business challenges. This module encourages me with tools, knowledge and a winning mindset!
