Professor Antonio Roberto de Oliveira from Colegio Rio Branco, Brazil returned to Finland for his second visit this year. 
He and six of his students embarked on an innovative journey of discovering new methodologies, learning techniques and entrepreneurship with the aim of changing the traditional system back in their home country, Brazil. On the last leg of their trip, they stopped at Proakatemia to learn more about teamwork and young leadership.
 
Altogether with his group and Proakatemia students, Antonio took part in a one-hour workshop on friend leadership and an innovative challenge on how to sell organic cosmetic products via Internet. His impressions?
"I was amazed to see that Proakatemia students, even though they are younger than my students, are already thinking ahead. They are really nice and engaged people, know what they want and are prepared for the market. The level of discussions in here is high and that's one the most important things about this place."
