Interviewer: How did you come up with the idea of such a business venture?
Ms. Emmanuel: Training is extremely challenging as well as rewarding at the same time, I has been working as a freelancer as well as on the panel of many training companies. And I realized most companies look at the number of hours and charge their clients.

Creating value for organizations is the key in my business and that is exactly what we do!
