At the heart of this endeavor stood our distinguished lead speaker, Thomas Desmond. His insights have illuminated the path to financial understanding. Alongside him, George Psomas and Elena Goynatsky added unique dimensions to the course, offering a comprehensive view of the subject. Our guest speakers, Iuliia Kolomiiets and Nataliya Nova, added diverse perspectives that broadened our horizons. Our live translation team, Orest Mysiak and Anastasiia Dmytrenko, ensured inclusivity for all attendees. Operating seamlessly behind the scenes was Operations Manager Kateryna Bleskova, orchestrating the logistical aspects of the course. Additionally, Alina Danilova, our marketing whiz, played a pivotal role in shaping our marketing strategy, adding her creative brilliance to the course's success.

Appreciating Our Students

Our heartfelt thanks extend to our dedicated students, whose enthusiasm and active participation have created an inspiring and enriching learning community. Your commitment has made this journey one of collective empowerment.

Parting Words of Wisdom from Thomas

As we conclude this transformative course, Thomas Desmond leaves us with key principles:

- Cash is King.
- Greed is a Vice; it fogs one’s judgment.  It has no place in our decision-making process.
- Never sell yourself short or put it another way: never underestimate your abilities.
- Never allow yourself to be intimidated intellectually or emotionally.

Moving Forward

As we bid farewell to this impactful journey, we carry forward the gained wisdom, connections, and empowerment. Armed with a newfound understanding of finance and a resilient entrepreneurial spirit, we eagerly embrace future challenges.
