See what our previous participants say.


The fact that the training was pretty much hands-on, focused on examples and real-life scenarios was quite useful.


The sessions were quite flexible and we followed the path we felt was most useful for us as a group. This made the sessions very fruitful and relevant for everyone.


Hands on training was great. Role play and letting us share our learnings and observations. There was a great safe space created immediately. The fact that HROS understands the start up environment helped a lot.


Building a community of peers, giving useful tools to address everyday's tasks. Especially improving the way we give and receive feedback.
