"I feel much better equipped with my project compared to the concept you demonstrated and the exercises proposed. However, I still have the impression that to create this media, I will need a team as there are many skills to deploy. I will use the results of this program to create a more elaborate business plan in search of investors to multiply resources (skills) and maximize the impact that a potential pan-Caribbean media could have."
"The most important to me were the User Research methods, the Personas creation, and Ideation (brainstorming)!"
"5 !!!!!!!!! Professionalism and experience ! You've done a very good job guys. Congrats."

"I feel ok with my project. I have been working on it for years now, so I am quite mellow about things concerning it."
"I've learnt creating user journeys, communicating what it is that I want to do for different audiences, prototyping (with intention)"
"5! Breaking down a project idea is important!"
"The project makes me feel AWESOME because I really feel alive and aligned with my purpose and the massive fast paced action that I have to implement to make it happen keeps me focused and engaged. I love the feeling."
"The 3 main things I learnt from my cohort is the importance of using the caribbean network dynamic :
A) getting in touch with other caribbean women made me realise how deeply I feel I belong to that regional community by culture as much as by ideological choice; it made it clear we have a shared perspectives and definitions of what is a good life, the growth path humanity should engage in to build a more just and peaceful world...
B) the huge interest of the design thinking process applied as a group has forced me to confront my ideas to their points of views which was a really a rich experience that brought a lot of clarity and pragmatism and even more fresh and accurate ideas that contributed to my project more than positively
C) eventually I learnt that no matter how different our projects looked, they are similar in essence and can be pushed forward with the same core process of answering key questions and being exposed to key challenges that help define them and communicate about them clearly."
"5, because I believe it's it's a valuable and innovative experience that fosters a deep sense of carribeanity as well as the emergence of a caribbean leadership dynamic. Personally, I was particularly impressed with the swift and accurate capacity of the coaches to identify my needs and bring my attention to the right idea that I had not at all envisioned before and propose creative and simple solutions to unlock whatever blockage I was facing...!"
"The methodology provides with great foundations to make progress and the masterclasses were just amazing"
"I am used to this type of training, and this one is of a high level, I have absolutely nothing to say about the content, the form or the teaching methods"
"It was one of the most satisfying work session we've had since the creation of our project! It was deep, rigorous and concrete. We are very motivated to move on!"
