Anything you want, just convince me! - Course on presentation, argumentation and teamwork

General description

Have you ever found yourself walking home after a party without a date? Have you ever rewound the evening and wondered what exactly went wrong? Sounds kinda familiar, huh?

Well, the answer is simple! You probably PRESENTED yourself in a bad way, or not exactly in a way the other person would have liked. Or maybe you just weren't convincing enough, you lacked ARGUMENTS to get that special someone to trust you? Or, who knows? Perhaps your friends weren't doing their part of job good enough, because even hitting-on is sometimes TEAMWORK?

LBG Belgrade is there to help you! Come to the capital of Serbia and learn how to present yourself in the best possible way, how to think of good arguments that will make anyone believe in what you're saying? And finally, how to get your friends and teammates help you achieve your goal, no matter what it is.

And we know that theory is nothing without practice. That is why we'll use Belgrade's wonderful culture and habbits, especially those in the evening, to provide you with the opportunity to practice the conviction, if you know what we mean ;)

Come to Belgrade's BEST spring course. And never walk home alone again.
