I am Daniela, I am an engineer and an economist and I stronly believe in how trainings can change people and careers.
If you’re seeing my in the classroom I am surely explaining what is to be found behind a balance sheet or how a budget paln can be made. You’ll also see me, with the same amount of passion, training the entrepreneurs or supporting them in making a business plan. A lot of times I integrate financial management and project management or the methods than can be used to write a grant application.
