“After 35 successful exclusive executive immersion programs in Silicon Valley, with 98% client satisfaction, we ventured into our first virtual version with a multinational company involving participants from several countries.

While the in loco experience is irreplicable, several benefits and advantages were confirmed, which led us to want to share these advantages with a wider audience.”

Carlos Oliveira, CEO LBC
