“Shaping the Future of Sport Through Education” – Matteo Tassi

SportWorks TALKS – #MeetTheMembers series

Never waste a good crisis!
This is what the #SportWorksTALKS with Matteo Tassi, Executive Education Senior Manager at CIES, is all about. He leads us in an inspiring journey on how to respond to the painful process of watching the “destruction” of our plans by the unfolding of the corona virus pandemic.
According to Tassi, we need to focus on what we can instead of what we cannot do. This is how he could switch perspectives and foresee lots of exciting challenges to face and several innovative deliveries to develop.
As result, CIES is even more relevant, accessible, and globalized than before. If you are curious on how to get practical on the appreciative art of turning coal into diamond, then wait no more.
Spoiler: there are great news for those who are open to learning online.
