BrainTrainer is a training-based service that provides high-quality experiences while aiming to develop certain soft skills. During BrainTrainer events, the learning by doing principle takes a major role, and participants are given the chance to work in an intercultural environment, while aspiring to become more professional and successful at the time being and in their future careers.
