GER training courses are based on a solid foundation of practical experiences which will be transferred to course attendees by delivering a right balance between basic principles and several case studies directly experienced by the course instructors through their several years of international career.

Courses content can be specifically designed to respond to client requirements to ensure a perfect match between course deliverables and customer expectations. Courses can be delivered at client’s office or at the training facilities offered in collaboration with the University of Geneva, Geneva Switzerland.
