Vibeke Tuxen (VTuxen)
The course has laid the ground for me to start as an independent sustainable business consultant. What I liked the most about the course was it’s holistic approach to sustainability - from CSR analyses and strategies, to partnerships and communication. This way I am able to adjust my consulting approach individually to each client.
