“My life has been changed by the Bright hands-on training program in the most literal way: I am now working with Bright Conferences on a full-time basis!

This would not have happened if I wasn’t part of the program and absorbed all the tips and tricks Nadine and Lisa were sharing with us!

I made connections with amazing students in the program, whom I keep in touch with today. I recommend this program to those who find their passion in marketing, events or entrepreneurship as Nadine and Lisa are well-known gurus in these areas: BONUS POINTS – they love sharing their knowledge with others!” – Ana, Bright Events Assistant
