Breaking (in)visible walls - how helping others may help your personal growth!

What do you do if you were a woman from a non-developed country, without equal rights for education?

What do you do if you were a woman whose parents decided what your career path is going to be?

What do you do if you're earning 300$/month and can't afford paid training to change your career?

You apply for the free Power BI Bootcamp!

Does something like this even exist?! Yes, of course! I've just run one with the helping hand of other fellow community members.

In this table talk, we want to share lessons learned from running this Bootcamp - not just how it changed the lives of these wonderful human beings (hopefully for the better), who didn't have a proper chance to achieve their professional goals, but also how this helped us in personal growth and to redefine the point of view based on living in a well-developed countries.

After this session, you'll get nothing in terms of tech knowledge, but you will walk away with a good feeling in your soul, and understand why helping others also helps YOU in breaking many (in)visible walls!
