The study conducted:
The Future Leaders Seminar, held annually by the Eduarda Justo Foundation, leaves an indelible mark on the participants. With this mind, a study has been conducted on the impact or influence the Seminar has had on the participants of previous editions. Over one third affirmed that attending it was a turning point in their lives and, that thanks to the Seminar, they had taken a new path for their personal and life plan. 100% of the participants accentuated the positive influence they received and 50% highlighted that the Seminar had sparked in them an entrepreneurial spirit, a feeling of wanting to excel and improved self-confidence.
